Houston Swim Lessons
Private Swim Lessons
Happy Swimmers started teaching at-home swim lessons in 1991 in Los Angeles, with 22 clients. In 1993 we began serving Phoenix. In 2009 we opened in Austin, and this is our second summer in Houston, with hundreds of kids learning each summer. We are the most seasoned mobile swim lesson company serving the Houston Metro area. Our staff average 13 years swimming lesson teaching.
This region is home to many fine swim schools and city programs, so why do we offer swimming lessons? Some kids do well in boisterous social large group swim lessons, but many kids do not, and prefer a quiet, trusting setting of their own home pool and a dedicated, kind-hearted, patient instructor. We specialize in the latter style of teaching.

Here’s a recent testimonial from a mom in Sugar Land:
I enrolled my 2 1/2 year old daughter in private swimming lessons through Happy Swimmers USA with instructor Krysta Meyer. We have been taking the lessons for 2 months and my 2 1/2 year old can jump in the swimming pool on her own, swim and float on her back for the entire length of the pool (30 feet) to the side without any assistance. My husband and I are amazed at her progress and have been very impressed with her instructor, Krysta. I highly recommend this program for every child learning how to swim.

Swim Lesson Tip:
Goggles are ok for 3 year olds and up during lessons- IF they fit well and don’t leak much. Encourage parents to get quality goggles, like Speedo’s for children, not the $1.50 pair from the drugstore which leak incessantly.

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!

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.
I have been swim instructing for 3 years now, along with being a competitive swimmer for more than 10 years. I have taught kids and adults from ages 6 months to 55 years while also teaching swim lessons and skills for swim team and the four main swim strokes.
My favorite thing about teaching swim lessons is knowing that I have taught a very important lifelong skill.

I learned to swim when I was three years old, and joined competitive swimming when I was five. Fifteen years later, I am now a member of the Florida Institute of Technology University Swim Team going into my junior year. I’ve been teaching swim lessons for three years and absolutely love it. There’s no greater feeling than exposing a new swimmer to the joys of the sport and ability I’ve loved my entire life, and helping someone progress towards water safety and proficiency. I can teach basic water safety all the way up to advanced skills and fine tuning, and just love watching swimmers progress in the activity!
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 10 years of experience teaching swim lessons.

I have 4 years Swim Lesson Instruction experience & 1 year Swim Team Coaching experience.
I love being in the water and love kids, so what better role for me to serve in than teaching little ones how to enjoy and be safe in the water! I have eight years of experience swimming for a team, one year of experience as an assistant coach for a neighborhood swim team, and 4 years of experience giving private lessons to both kids and adults. What I love most about teaching swim lessons is seeing kids overcome their fears in the water while having a blast!

Design and sport are my passions. I have 10 years experience teaching private swimming lessons to children 3 to 12 years. I have experience with children special needs.We can go through this process together and learn how to swim while we have fun. Additionally I teach swimming for adults and help them prepare their performance for triathlons. I love this activity but I especially enjoy the connection with others.

I hope to take care of the others’ lives while enjoying outdoor activities.

I’m your Region’s Manager of Swim Instructors. Contact me through the website contact form, for anything swim instructor related once swim lessons have begun with your instructor.
A little more about me… I’ve been actively teaching swim lessons for six years and enjoy this more than any other profession I’ve ever been involved in. There is nothing better than doing what you love for a living and being able to teach and share it with others. I get to teach a child; learn life long skills that last a life time, as well as safety and the joy of the water. I’m always amazed at how students learn so much in a short period of time. It is also fun to watch them “Strut Their Stuff” when they become confident at what they have learned. I started swimming at age 3 and have never enjoyed anything more than the water. I have been a competitive swimmer, PADI diver and Coast Guard Auxiliary member for many years. Welcome to Happy Swimmers! I am happy to help.
