Houston Metro Lifeguard for Hire Service
Including The Woodlands, Spring, Katy, Sugar Land, Pearland, NASA, etc.
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 $194 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!

Yumi and Jere were wonderful lifeguards when they guarded our end of year pool party on Wednesday June 11 from 11-2. They were in touch with me, were on time and prepared, and were very responsible and knowledgeable. I was so happy to be able to put two adults in charge of our fourth grade class party.
Based on my experience with Yumi Temple and her cohort Jere, I would highly recommend Happy Swimmers.
Thank you for a wonderful experience. So happy we used your business.
Hi Jenn.. wow today was really scary. I had to use my first aid skills on my mom! We work at the same preschool & she had an allergic reaction & went into shock! I did everything I remembered until the paramedics came.. I really can’t thank you enough for teaching me everything I needed to know!
Everything about my experience with Happy Swimmers has been amazing! From the scheduling to the fantastic teacher they sent for my 5 and 6 year old. The instructor, Emma, had to contend with 2 very different personalities along with 2 different levels of swimming experience. She was more than equipped to deal with that and gave each child unparalleled support, encouragement and instruction. I highly recommend this service to all parents that want to give their child a great experience in being water safe!
We have three kids ages 7, 4, and 2 & 1/2. This was our second year having Happy Swimmers, with instructor Trisha Commons, come teach our kids (the two oldest) to swim. I tried another company the year before I tried Happy Swimmers and although the kids learned swim safety, they were bored and did not learn how to enjoy the pool. Trisha got our son, who did not really like swimming, having fun and by the end of last year could swim the entire length of the pool on his own.
Trisha is great with the kids and is flexible in her teaching style to work with different personalities. She is able to get the kids confident in their abilities and teaches them how to swim, but also teaches them how to have fun! I will definitely be asking Happy Swimmers and Trisha to teach the kids again next year.
I have a toddler and a pool and wanted to make sure my son learned water safety. After taking some group classes last summer, I knew I wanted more one-on-one attention at our home. This summer I reviewed several in-home companies and was impressed with Happy Swimmers approach of water safety.
Trish worked with my stubborn 2-yr old 2-3 times a week. Within the first lesson he knew how to climb out of the pool and to ask permission before getting in. Although our goal was to get him water comfortable more than “swimming”, he indeed learned to swim within a few weeks. We extended our lessons and really appreciated Trish’s approach. We will sign up again next summer. Many of our friends with children happened to be present on several lessons and I expect they will also sign up next summer as well.
Hired a happy swimmers for private life guard for a party for over 200 people at my house. The lifeguard was great. She called to confirm before, came on time, and stayed later then we originally signed up because the party went over. She also showed up on time despite there being a black out that because of storms the day before. I highly recommend Happy Swimmers.

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
I have been lifeguarding since the summer of 2016, and I have fell in love with the job. I love being around the water, no matter where I’m at! I have a passion for watersports such as surfing, wakeboarding, and fishing. When I am guarding, my #1 priority is safety no matter what. I intend to keep everyone safe and prevent accidents, while still promoting a fun environment! Lifeguarding has also helped me realized my love for helping people and being around kids! When lifeguarding I promise to protect patrons and do everything in my power to keep people safe.

I have 5 years of lifeguarding experience and over 10 years of swimming experience and a medal from the Junior Olympics! The best part about lifeguarding events is getting to have fun and meet great people, while keeping everyone safe.

I became interested in lifeguarding through my aspiration to be a surgeon and life guarding seemed like the first step. My intentions are to be there to save anyone if in that situation and to learn from my experience and apply it to becoming a doctor. I like being around kids and having the ability to interact occasionally while at work.
Serving:Pearland, Sugar Land, League City, Houston

Some of the communities I serve:Houston, Bellaire, Katy, Sugar Land
Hi, my name is Glori. I started swimming before I could walk and fell in love with the water. I began swimming competitively at age 6 and did that through high school. I have also life guarded and taught swim lessons for 15 years. I love teaching others to swim and hope to share that love of the water with others. I also teach preschool during the week. I have taught kids and adults and individuals with special needs. I love swimming and want everyone to have a great experience in the water. My picture was taken in the Mediterranean sea a few years back.
Former YMCA and Lifetime swim instructor with 5 years of teaching experience. I was also on a competitive swimming from the age of 7 to 15 until my new calling came; lifeguarding. I have experience with special needs children, adults, infants and everything in between. Every one of my students brought out the inner child in me because learning to swim is fun! We can both make this learning experience something unforgettable! Ask me about my songs I sing to my student!!!
Take nothing but memories, leave nothing but footprints, kill nothing but time. Everyone’s life is precious. Former competitive swimmer and also experience assisting at a daycare for 10+ years naturally put me in a place of lifeguard. Water safety is my priority over everything!
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 🙂
Common areas I serve: Houston, Humble, Spring, Jersey Village
This is my second summer being a lifeguard and I am very excited. I can’t wait to apply everything I learned there when watching swimmers of all different skill levels and ages. I also have a strong background in swimming. I have been swimming competitively since I was six years old and I currently swim for a year round swim club.
When lifeguarding, I aim to create a safe environment while allowing everyone involved to have as much fun as possible. Hosts and other adults can rest assured that everyone will be safe.
I serve the Houston areas of Bellaire, West University, Heights, River Oaks, Memorial, and Spring Branch, but would love to work in other areas not mentioned.
My name is Joielle but generally people mispronounce my name so people generally call me Joi. For 8 years I swam competitively, but I now work as a very charismatic lifeguard, with 3 years experience. I genuinely enjoy people, like to entertain, and keep a smile on everyone’s face. I like to keep work professional, especially since I am in the job of saving lives; however, you will never catch me uptight. I hope as a lifeguard I can bring some “Joi” to the party.
I serve Houston during this summer and otherwise in the Atlanta communities of Peachtree city, Alpharetta, Marrietta, Buckhead, among others
11 Years Experience!
Hi there, my name is Paola. I LOVE swimming and working with kids! It’s always fun and an adventure! Swimming has always been in my life (I was a competitive swimmer)! I’ve been teaching this beautiful sport since 2004 with ages 04 to 17 and adults. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Physical Education and I was also a Youth counselor on a cruise ship! I am excited for the opportunity to inspire others to feel the same way I do about the water! ! Be ready to learn and have a lot of fun! 🙂
I started working as a lifeguard for City of Glendale and LA County at the age of 17 and I have not stopped lifeguarding ever since (8th years!) I am currently an assistant pool manager with City of Pasadena (3rd year) and regional manager with Happy Swimmers (1st year).
Lifeguarding is full of responsibly but it is also very rewarding. You get to socialize with others, jump in the water on really hot days and serve your community.

For booking questions or suggestions, use the contact form for our owner, Jenn, for any assistance leading up to your online booking. Have a happy and safe party! Christine Sanders
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.
