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 $139 per lifeguard. 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.

I enjoy life-guarding, and I always want to ensure that everyone is safe, happy, and has a positive experience.

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! The thing I like the most about lifeguarding is the people because everyone is so nice and the patrons love to talk about your experience. An interesting fact about me– I just recently signed a reconnaissance contract with the Marine Corps and will be shipping out to basic training in August of 2018!

Event Lifeguard Bio: From my first big swim in the Pacific, and subsequent pummeling from an unexpected wave, I have loved lifeguards. I became a Jr. Lifeguard at age 7 after my unfortunate tossing in the white water, and began to understand the importance of water safety. The foundational learning of this program gave me the passion for ocean and pool awareness I have today. During my formative years, I began to play water polo and lifeguard after practice for our school’s younger swimmers. I continued to play competitively in college and became a Jr. Guard Instructor as well as an Ocean Lifeguard. My love of the water has stayed with me even when I became a Zookeeper after earning my bachelor’s, where I swam for exercise. The observational skills and preventative efforts I practiced daily when caring for Orangutans and Harbor Seals helped maintain my lifeguarding prowess. When I became a researcher of Orangutans in Indonesia and began my graduate schooling, I knew event lifeguarding would be a great way to support my education while honing my observational techniques. Scanning the trees for primate behaviors is perfect practice for scanning the water area for potentially distressed swimmers and vice versa. I love all primates, humans included, and I will work hard to keep all of them safe and happy- inside the water and out!

Swim Instructor Bio:
15+ years experience teaching swimming! Christina generally serves Santa Monica and the Westside, from the Ocean to West Hollywood Hills.
She says: The moment I see swimming “click” in a student, I feel a wave of happiness- their giant smile glowing, where once a timid or nervous excitement challenged their own self-confidence. I have seen hundreds of these smiles, from young ones to golden aged students, and it never fails to fill me with a sense of purpose.
I try to apply all my years of teaching swimmers to each and every new student’s learning abilities. What may work for one does not always transfer. When I was a zookeeper, I learned that positive reinforcement is the best and least stressful way to teach even the most stubborn tiger or sea lion to accept medical treatments, and swim beautifully (even the tiger!). Hopefully, none of my human trainees will be as tough, but I am up for the challenge!
As a Master’s student in Anthropology, I have learned to apply my observational skills to the pool too. Knowing how a student can adapt to the new challenge of swimming is not unlike understanding how different cultures learn to adapt to societies’ challenges.
I plan to use all my various experiences from Jr. Lifeguard instructor, Beach Lifeguard, Zookeeper, and Grad school to influence the unique and focused attention I will give while teaching a new swimmer.
Everyone deserves the ability to enjoy swimming and feel confident too. I can’t wait to welcome others into the water 🙂

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 been a lifeguard for Arizona State University for a little over a year. I am also a lifeguard instructor for the school and am even a coordinator for the Downtown Phoenix rooftop pool. My goal as a lifeguard is to create a fun and safe environment for my patrons in and around the pool.

Swim teaching 11 summers now & 7 of them with Happy Swimmers!
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 love all the knowledge I have learned and always like to teach them all I know. It’s a good way of giving back and having fun in the water. I practice synchronized swimming, Spanish, adult learn to swim experience, and learn to swim stroke work & a little bit of coaching.
I love meeting new people. I have been guarding since I was 15 which means I am experience at preventing accidents from happening. I have seen it all. I enjoy what I do.

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.
