Phoenix Lifeguard for Hire Service
It’s smart to hire a Phoenix private lifeguard for a backyard pool party: Ask one of our seven hosts grateful for us last summer where urgent interventions were done by our guards at each of those parties. Did anyone see it? Our lifeguards did, and all were happy.
Price for up to 3 hours is $164 for the first lifeguard; Need another lifeguard? Each additional lifeguard for the same event is $149. Over 3 hours add $25/half hour per lifeguard. Feel free to keep the guards over your original booking time 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 guard made 4 rescues to children at a busy party. Think their parents thought he was worth it?
Here’s just one who booked a Happy Swimmers Lifeguard:
We had a lifeguard at my son’s 6th birthday party, Matt. He showed up on time, was incredibly friendly and amazing at his job. About 2 hours into the party the pool was packed with kids. I was talking to a friend when suddenly I saw Matt jump up from his chair, run to the far side of the pool and pull my 2-year-old daughter from underwater. He saved her life. None of us saw what happened and my daughter got lost in the crowd. I cannot recommend this company enough and will be using them again at every pool party we have.

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.

Over the summer I had a total of 17 saves from incidents such as drowning, seizures, cardiac arrest, heat strokes, and bumped heads. My intention as a lifeguard is to keep you safe!

Swim Instructor Bio:
I have been a swim instructor professionally and privately for 4 years and have coordinates swim lessons and staff at an aquatic facility for 1 year. It is a joy teaching kids how to swim and watching them progress because this is the earliest form of life-saving in my eyes. If you teach kids proper swimming and survival skills they will less likely need saving from lifeguards although still possible.
I had been a lifeguard for 3 years and managed lifeguards for 1 year. I have always enjoyed keeping kids safe in and out of the water and feel proud of my knowledge of this safety because it can help people in many situations even outside of the workplace.
Swim lessons are by far the favorite part of my job. I love being around kids and sharing my passion for being in the water. I grew up swimming, actually swam competitively for 15+ years. I can teach a wide variety of skills from getting comfortable in water, to perfecting your butterfly technique.
I am also fluent in English and Spanish.
Lifeguarding has been one of the highlights of my summers. My goal as a lifeguard is to make sure everyone is safe and feels comfortable being around the water. I also love being around animals and ensuring they can swim safely.
I serve the Phoenix and Tuscon areas of Northern Tucson such as Oro Valley, Marana, Catilina Foothills, among others.
I have two years lifeguarding experience. I am currently a supervisor at a water park in Mesa. I am in the process of becoming an EMT and love learning more and more about emergency medicine. I have my scuba diving license, CPR/First Aid/AED, and special facilities certification as well.
Also serving Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, Tempe and other Phoenix area cities Valleywide.
I have had a love of the water ever since I was little, and after years of competitive swimming, realized that lifeguarding could help me combine my love of people and the water into one. I intend to provide a fun and safe environment for children to build unforgettable memories in, and for parents to be stress free while their children are in the water. I love meeting new people through lifeguarding and am looking forward to being a guard for your event!
I love photography, spending time in the water, working with kids, and giving back to my community.

I am so very excited to have joined this team of Happy Swimmers representing the NorCal region of the company. Service is the watchword. Our team offers the best of the best, albeit Lifeguard training, CPR training or private lifeguard services. When I’m not coordinating and helping save lives, you can find me hangin’ at the beach, riding my bike or most likely, on my local private dancefloor aka my kitchen cooking up a storm for myself and my love.
Hi! My name is Chloe and I’ve been lifeguarding since the spring of 2016. My intention in guarding is to maintain a safe swimming environment where everyone is comfortable and confident. I enjoy lifeguarding because it is a service I can share with many people to improve the quality of their swimming or event experience. I became interested in lifeguarding because I was a competitive diver from ages 8-21 and saw how important it was to always be aware of your surroundings as you can never predict what is going to happen!

Hello patrons, my name is Graham Thompson. Over the past three to four years, I have been an active participant in competitive swimming. I became interested in being a lifeguard some time last year, and got my certification early this 2017 summer. As an event lifeguard, I intend to watch every individual inside the pool, and out, like a hawk. However, I am no robot, and am more than willing to mix it up by supervising pool games such as “sharks and minnows”, while combining the fun with unwavering safety. A fun fact about myself that I am proud to share is that I was the captain of my high school swim team just last year during the August-October 2016 swim season.
I serve the Phoenix communities of Phoenix, Glendale, and Peoria, among others.
I have also been teaching swim lessons for 7 years, I volunteered for 2 years to learn what I know and have taught my own classes for the other 5 years. I ahem experience with group classes, one on one, special needs and all ages.
I have been a lifeguard since 2013. With my 6 years of experience, I have found a love for what I do. Lifeguarding is a really important and meaningful job that I get the honor of doing and thanks to Happy Swimmers, I can help keep backyard pools safe now too. I am a swimmer myself and swam on Red Mountain’s Varsity Swim Team in High School. Currently, I am going into my junior year of college pursuing a degree in Economics.

I have experience teaching all skill levels. My favorite part about swim lessons is helping students master a new skill! I have been a competitive swimmer almost all of my life so swimming has always been one of my favorite activities!
I have been lifeguarding pools for 3 years. My favorite part about lifeguarding is that it is always a positive environment because people love swimming! I always make sure to scan the entire pool properly to ensure a safe experience for all of the swimmers. I have also coached water polo as a certified lifeguard so that adds an interesting element to the mix.

I have been teaching since I was 17 years of age. I love teaching because I know I can help the whole family be safe in and around the water.

I grew up swimming and swam all throughout middle school, high school and college. I began teaching swim lessons in 2012 and have taught children ranging in age from 2-12 years old.

Hi my name is Robert and I am a lifeguard for the YMCA and Happy Swimmers USA in Phoenix! I love my job and am dedicated when on guard to ensure a safe and fun swimming environment.

I have been lifeguarding for 1 year with Happy Swimmers and 2 years with The City of Mesa Parks and Rec. What I like most about lifeguarding is meeting new people and having fun with kids. One fun fact about me is that I am training to become a student pilot out of Falcon Field Airport.
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.

I been teaching Swim Lesson for around 4 years already using Red Cross guideline techniques. A lot of the times I use my own imagination in order to have fun an an effective learning experience. Some of my background experience touched special children that needed extra help in order to remain confident in water.
Every weekend in one of the pools I’ve been working in weve scheduled event parties with usually families or a group of people (avg. 50) renting the pool. Usually we had to decorate the pool in one specific theme so everyone will have fun. In some cases a lot of kids were involved so we had to be extra prepared.
I serve the Arizona communities of Tucson, Phoenix, Scotsdale, Gilbert, among others.
I spent 5 summer seasons as a lifeguard in San Diego. Lifeguarding is a very serious job because I have the duty to act in a life threatening situation. As serious as it is, lifeguarding is also a very rewarding job where I can share my water safety knowledge with children and parents while also being a role model to those I protect. I also have extensive experience with bathroom accidents in the pool so no need to worry!
