San Antonio Lifeguard for Hire Service
We’re here to help you, and keep your party safe.
Here’s a little about us…
Happy Swimmers private lifeguard service began in 1991 in Los Angeles, and over the 25+ 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 drownings and near-drowning accidents we’ve all witnessed in the news. In 2009 we opened in Austin and Houston, 2011 in Dallas and San Antonio! We are the largest private event lifeguard service in the country and dare I then say, the largest in Texas!
Prices: $189 for the first 3 hours for one lifeguard. Need additional lifeguards? Each $174 then for the first 3 hours. If you go 3 1/2 hours or longer, we add $25 per half hour per lifeguard. Prices automatically calculate on the next page depending on your date and times.

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 first learned how to swim when I was 5-years-old, jumping into the pool right after my older brothers. Since then, I have been a competitive swimmer on my high school swim team and club swim team.
I began teaching lessons at 15, working with children as young as 2 in group and private settings, as well as adults. My favorite lessons were with special needs children with disabilities like autism, down syndrome and ADHD. I believe that every child is different, so there is not right or wrong way to learn – I do my best to adjust my teaching to the individual.
With my 4 years as a Summer league swim coach, I am knowledgable on instructing any level of swimmers – from those just learning how to blow bubbles and floating to advanced swimmers looking to learn how to dive, flip turn and perform proper stroke technique. Above all else, I make sure the learning process is fun and everyone is smiling at the end of the day!
My dream job as a child was to lifeguard at my local neighborhood pool, the place where I spent every Summer growing up. I began working here at 15-years-old, and returned every Summer for 5 years as a lifeguard, swim instructor, pool manager and swim coach.
Since beginning my college career at the University of Texas at Austin, I have lifeguarded for the RecSports Aquatics center. After working here for 3 years, I have been promoted to headguard as well as received my lifeguard instructor certification.
With my years as a Summer league swim coach, I have endless patience, pool games and compassion for working with kids. While my priority is always safety, I’d be more than happy to lead races, sharks and minnows, pigeon, categories… the list goes on!
Serving: San Antonio, Pleasanton, New Braunfels, San Marcus, Austin

4 years experience. General areas I can serve: San Antonio, San Marcos, Austin, College Station
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.

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.
