Here’s a little about us…
Happy Swimmers private lifeguard service began in 1991 in Los Angeles, and over the 20+ years, we’ve expanded to many Southwest cities, only able to do so because of our solid reputation in each area we serve. Our aim is to be your hired professional eyes for your party, truly preventing many of the drowning and near drowning accidents we’ve all witnessed in the news. In 2009 we opened in Austin and Houston, 2011 in Dallas and now San Antonio! We are the largest private event lifeguard service in the country and dare I then say, the largest in Texas!

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 have been a lifeguard for over 4 years now. It seemed like the best job for me to do since I have been around the water ever since I was a little boy. I love going to these lifeguard events and seeing all the kids having a great time because it reminds me of when I was young and would go to the pool all the time. I love being the ‘cool’ lifeguard that kids can play with but at the same time I always make sure kids are being safe and everything is under control.
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.

I became a lifeguard in 2013 and have loved it ever since! For two years (2013-2014) I worked as a lifeguard in the Summer and late Fall at Oakwell Farms neighborhood pool. Last summer (2015) I worked briefly as a lifeguard at Inwood Hallow neighborhood pool as a sub, and then moved onto a full time job at Fort Sam Houston Outdoor Aquatic Center. Towards the end of the summer last year, I was a lifeguard for kids’ birthday parties. My intention for lifeguarding this summer is to provide safety, protection, and a positive attitude for the people I will be serving. I love meeting and interacting with new people, which is my favorite thing about lifeguarding private events.
I have been teaching swim lessons for roughly a year now under Fort Sam Houston outdoor aquatic center. Last summer I had 17 swim students ranging from the ages of 3-7 and one 12 year old. I love teaching swim lessons because it is a unique opportunity to grow closer to kids of all ages in a fun and educational environment. I love kids, I have had the pleasure of babysitting my nieces & nephews as well as neighbors kids over the past 5 years. Lastly, I have a very flexible schedule and a friendly, nurturing, and patient personality.
This is my first year to Lifeguard. I am a life-long swimmer and have done triathlons for over 15 years. My hardest swim was across the San Francisco Bay for the Escape from Alcatraz triathlon! I am retiring after a 20 year career in the Army. I have a passion for public service and want to continue serving my community with water safety.
I serve the San Antonio communities of San Antonio proper, Schertz, New Braunfels, among others.
