Houston Metro Lifeguard for Hire Service

Lifeguard Service

Houston Private Lifeguard Service for Children’s Pool Parties and Corporate Events

Happy Swimmers started private lifeguard service to families in 1991 in Los Angeles, with 22 clients. In 1993 we began serving Phoenix, and later San Jose, CA. In 2009 we opened in Austin, and in 2011 Houston! We are the largest private party lifeguard service serving the Houston Metro area.

Our staff lifeguards are Red Cross certified in Lifegaurding, CPR and First Aid. They are experienced, many from high volume city programs and waterparks, where they know how to spot an emergency before it becomes one, and keep things low key and happy. Our staff is insured, whereas moonlighting lifeguards aren’t. We take our business seriously, so you and your guests can enjoy the party.

Price for up to 3 hours is $189 $179 per lifeguard.  Over 3 hours add $25/half hour per lifeguard.  Feel free to keep the guards over your original booking pending their schedule.  Our office will bill you.  The booking form on the next page will easily calculate your cost based on your party length and amount of lifeguards.  We’re a cheap alternative to an accident.  Just recently, one of our guards made 4 rescues to children at a busy pool party.  Think their parents thought he was worth it?

Do we serve your area? If you’re in the Houston Metro area, it will be our pleasure to serve you. Book early, however, as prime dates fill rather quickly!

Benjamin Alexander, Lifeguard

Houston; 4 years experience

My name is Ben Alexander and I’ve been lifeguarding since I was 15 years old. Keeping kids as safe as possible while still allowing room for kids to explore and be creative with their games and conversations is how I prefer to guard. It makes things easy going on everyone, and let’s parents relax during a party. No worries makes for a great party.

Brandon, Lifeguard and Private Swim Instructor


My swim instructing background goes back to my swimming days, where I trained for 10 years perfecting my strokes and technique. I taught swim lessons for a spring in High school, and thoroughly enjoyed it. My specialties include freestyle and backstroke technique, as well as basic techniques for young children. Fun fact about me: I’ve swam with sea turtles in Hawaii!

I have been lifeguarding for about a year now. My intention for guarding is to help create an environment that is the most fun, and safe, it can possibly be. My favorite part of lifeguarding would have to be seeing how much fun everyone is having in the pool on a hot summer day! Fun fact about myself: I swam for 10 years of my life, and hold a record in the 200 freestyle relay at my high school!

I serve the Houston communities of Sugar Land, Katy/Cinco Ranch, Pearland, and Bellaire, among others

Courageous Cristian, Lifeguard for Hire


I’ve enjoyed swimming long distances for a few years now, so I then figured, “why not use my skills to help others?” Shortly after, I decided to become a lifeguard! I’ve passed the certification course twice and have had experience guarding adults, children, and infants both at outdoor leisure pools and an indoor natatorium. I’ve even assisted non-swimmers at the beach! I swim a few kilometers a week and attend monthly lifeguard training. Needless to say, pool party hosts can rest easy while I make sure that everyone is safe while having lots of fun!

I serve the Houston communities of Spring, The Woodlands, Sugarland, Pearland, and Conroe, among others.

Frank Ngueyn, Lifeguard for Hire


Hi! I’m Frank Nguyen i’m a private event lifeguard while I am recently certified in lifeguarding I can assure you that I am able with 11 years of competitive swimming background. At private events, I hope to keep the occupants of the pool safe without compromising any fun activities.

I look forward to working with you!

Jerahn Thomas

George Bush Intercontinental area

I have been a lifeguard for about 2 years now. My first lifeguard position was a community center where we averaged 20-30 children and teens a day. My most recent employer was Savannah State University, the college I attend now. I have been a lifeguard with my college for about a year and a half where we average 15-25 students daily. What I have come to love about lifeguarding is the numerous different personalities of people I get to interact with on a daily basis and build a relationship with. I enjoy the attentiveness I have to keep in order to be a lifeguard, this job keeps me alert and focused on the task at hand to make sure every patron is safe under my supervision. Don’t hesitate to book me 🙂

Maureen Burch, Lifeguard

Meg Stolt, Swim Instructor, Lifeguard, LGI


30+ years of swim lesson teaching experience and lifeguard experience. 10 years of Lifeguard Instructing.

Serving the communities of the Greater Houston Area.

Swim Instructor role:I have been teaching and coaching swimming for over 30 years to children of all ages, in a variety of settings and environments. I also currently work with triathletes in improving swim technique for open water. I thoroughly enjoy the excitement a child (regardless of the age), when a goal is achieved. I can share many stories about swimming and teaching, but nothing is more satisfying when a child has a big smile and is thrilled to see you because they enjoy the swim time. When teaching swim lessons, I am thrilled to see the self-confidence of each child building as they progress.

Event Lifeguard role: I am now entering my 35th season as a LG. Each year brings many rewards. It is joy to see kids having fun at their parties and playing in the pool. I am present to keep everyone safe. 

Additional certifications in: Lifeguard Open Water Certified — lake/ocean, WaterPark Certified, O2 Certified,

Red Cross Lifeguard Instructor (LGI) and CPR Instructor roles: My goal in training lifeguards is to instill the understanding that we are there to protect and serve. It is our job to prevent injuries before they occur and respond rapidly when an incident does happen. I teach the skills and practice the skills, so the participant can successfully meet the requirements to become a lifeguard. I train both pool and waterfront guards.

I have been teaching CPR for over 20 years. It is interesting to see how the various certifying agencies have become more stream-lined in their presentation of this lifesaving skill, creating an environment of being able to work together. It is rewarding when a participant reaches out to share how they were able to help someone because of the class.

Molly Barnby, College Station Lifeguard for Hire

College Station

Last summer I lifeguarded at a summer camp, spending my afternoons watching kids splash in the river and my nights applying aloe vera. Lifeguarding to me is all about making sure the most fun is possibly had by my swimmers while still staying safe. Lifeguarding isn’t about ruining fun or being a buzzkill, it’s about making sure everyone has the best possible time in a safe environment!

Nam Nguyen, Private Swim Instructor & Lifeguard


I have been teaching swim lessons for about 4 summers. I specialize in freestyle and breaststroke. Swimming is a sport that I love to do, and teaching it to others allows me to spread my knowledge and experience. I have also been swimming competitively for over 13 years.

I have been lifeguarding for the past 5 summers and also at the University of Houston this past school year. I lifeguard because it gives me the chance to prevent water-related accidents and promote water safety. I have continued to lifeguard through all these years because of the people I have met on the job.

I serve the Houston communities of Sugar Land, Missouri City, Stafford, Greatwood, among others.

Oscar E. Fumero Gonzalez, Lifeguard for Hire


I have 2 years lifeguard experience.

I started lifeguarding because I enjoy taking care of others and socializing. I have found this to job to have been one that I keep coming back to because I enjoy meeting new people and providing a safe environment for everyone. The most rewarding part of this job is knowing that I made a positive impact on a kids life and them telling me that when they grow up they wanna be just like me and that they wanna be a lifeguard too. Fun facts about me, I did martial arts for 5 years, I’m currently ranked 57th in the nation for weightlifting, I’m a DJ, and I’m a personal trainer.

A little bit about Christine: After working as an LAPD scientific investigator for 11 years I transitioned to completing my M.S. degree in Chemistry then followed a teaching and research path in university academics for several years. I then moved to Hawaii in 2008 where I first joined the JTA CPR/ Happy Swimmers team as a CPR/First Aid instructor. During these years I had always made a priority in volunteerism being active in the National Ski Patrol and the USC Catalina Hyperbaric Chamber. Today I reside in Houston and presently support Help America Today turning elementary aged kids into the volunteers of tomorrow through grassroots community service projects. My passion for teaching and making a positive impact on our society is why I love teaching CPR and First Aid, particularly for those never certified. I am proud to now expand into the administrative staff of the company and be a part of turning children into happy swimmers.

Sharon Carlson, Spring, TX Event Lifeguard and Lifeguard Instructor


Sydney Campbell, Private Swim Instructor and Lifeguard

College Station and Houston

I’ve been a competitive swimmer since I was 5 years old, so naturally I became a lifeguard for the past 6 years and swim instructor for the past 2 years, to pass on my joy of swimming to others. I specialize in freestyle and backstroke first and then if conditions allow, I also can teach breaststroke and butterfly. Growing up on swim team I learned many drills to perfect my strokes. I enjoy revealing my knowledge to other swimmers to help them get the right quality stroke they desire. My favorite part about swim instructing is watching my students become comfortable and independent in the water. Everyone should get the chance to learn to swim!

Creating a fun and safe environment in and around the pool is my goal. A swimmer with a smile is my heart’s fulfillment. Fun fact about me: I’ve swam in the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.

I serve the College Station & Houston communities & Bryan, among others

I have been working as a lifeguard for three years now through a number of organizations that have provided me with adequate experience. When I guard, I think of it as having everyone’s lives that is in the pool in my hands. I take my job very seriously and go to work knowing that I am making a difference- whether it be making the children feel and be safe or even giving parents peace of mind and to know that they can trust me with their beloved ones. What I love most about lifeguarding events is the new environment. There will always be a new view to look forward to and it excites me very much. A fun fact about me is that I am a pisces! I was born to love water!
