Lifeguard Service

Serving the whole Metroplex

Dallas Lifeguard Service, mobile throughout all Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex.

It’s smart to hire a lifeguard for a party, and we’re the company to serve you. Here’s a little about us…

Happy Swimmers private lifeguard service began in 1991 in Los Angeles, and over the years, we’ve expanded to many Southwest cities, in the aim of truly preventing many of the drowning and near-drowning accidents we’ve read about in the news. In 2009 we opened in Austin and Houston, and now Dallas-Fort Worth. We are the largest private lifeguard service in the country and dare I then say, the largest in Dallas!

Price: $199 for one lifeguard for a party of 3 hours or less. Need additional coverage~ additional lifeguards discounted to $184.   Going longer than 3 hours? It’s then $25 per half-hour per lifeguard. Don’t worry on the extra math, it’ll all be calculated for you on the booking form, next page 🙂

Andrew “Tre” – Lifeguard, Animal Whisperer and Aspiring Story Teller


I started lifeguarding over a decade ago in high school and I’ve continued to lifeguard off and on since then at various facilities from indoor college campuses to crowded, outdoor public pools. As a guard I’m scanning the scene constantly, I find that being proactive can help more than anything, though I’m always ready to react to the unexpected. It’s been very rewarding to see youngsters find confidence in the water and themselves, and knowing that I’m there to protect them is something I’m proud of. Pools tend to attract the wildest of critters as well, and I find that to be a perk of the job, having wrangled everything from baby bunnies to giant centipedes.

Hello! My name is Christian Youssef and I have been a lifeguard for the past 4 years. With plenty of experience as well as exceptional swimming skills I have been helping keep others safe. My number one priority as a lifeguard is the safety of my guests as I take this huge responsibility very seriously. Through constant awareness as well as implementing preventative measures I look to provide my guests a fun time as well as a safe one. Therefore this is why I love lifeguarding as it gives me the opportunity to utilize my talent of water skills in the most meaningful way by helping save lives which are the most valuable parts of our lives. Overall I will be committed to providing a safe and fun environment that will help ensure the safety of loved ones and friends. Lastly, a fun fact about me is that I am actually Egyptian!

Erika Madlambayan, Event Lifeguard, Part-time Ukulele player

Dallas-Fort Worth

Hi! I’m Erika Madlambayan. I started lifeguarding in the summer of 2020. Overall, I’ve been a swimmer for most of my life so I really enjoy being by the water and have always wanted to be a lifeguard at some point in time since. My background as a swimmer was one of the main reasons why I wanted to be a lifeguard because lifeguards help to keep the pool and swimmers safe. An additional fun fact about myself would be that I play the ukulele!

Serving: McKinney, Dallas, Grapevine, Carrollton (anywhere in the DFW area)

Grady Moyer, Event Lifeguard and Nationally Competitive Board-Gamer

Dallas Fort Worth

I always loved the water; I used to be a “pool rat,” then joining the Swim Team and then Water Polo team in high school. I began lifeguarding at the age of 15, working indoors for 3 years getting guard of the month twice during that time, and guard of the year for the one year it was tried. Then, I moved outdoors where I got the similar guard of the week and with my team defeated 20+ teams to win the North Texas Guard Games.
Knowing me personally: I thrive in high stress situations and de-escalation. I used to try to guard perfectly of out fear of failure, but now I guard just as well without it.

Serving: Southlake, Bedford-Euless, Colleyville, Grapevine (Hurst, Keller, Fort Worth)

Kendrick Perry, Lifeguard for Hire


Hello, my name is Kendrick. I’m a recently Certified American Red Cross Lifeguard. In addition to my day job, as a Fixed Income Specialist, I am an Assistant Scoutmaster with Boy Scout Troop 773 in Irving, TX. I made the decision to become a Lifeguard after completing BSA Aquatic Supervision & Water Rescue Training. I developed a love for swimming as a form of exercise following 20+ years as an amateur cyclist, and the addition of a few extra pounds. An important component of safety comes from “Being Prepared” (Scout’s Motto) for emergencies should they occur, but perhaps more practically, Prevention. I have over 6 years experience working with kids through scouting, and believe in living the 12 points of the Scout Law (ask me to recite them sometime ;). As a business professional, I strongly believe in providing excellent client service, and developing lasting relationships by treating individuals the way I expect to be treated.

In addition to the above certifications, I am Red Cross Certified in First Aid, CPR, and AED. I’m Originally from Lafayette, Louisiana and have been living in the DFW area since 1995. I completed my Bachelor’s in 1991 at University of Southwestern LA. I Eventually earned my MBA at University of Dallas in 2002. When not involved with work or scouting, you’ll likely find me either in the pool, on the bike, or thinking about one of the above. Other interest include cooking (indoors & out), geocaching, and in general pushing myself to learn and do new things; rest is good too 🙂

Having a qualified and responsible Lifeguard is very important in keeping kids and adults safe at your events. I’m very honored to be part of the Happy Swimmers Guard Staff!

I look forward to working with you!!!

I serve the DFW communities of Irving, Dallas, Arlington, Southlake, among others

I have experience working with young children and have been told that I have a talent working with scared children in this age group. I also have experience working with adults of all swimming ability. I am currently a master instructor for Lifetime Fitness.

I have been a Lifeguard for 6 years, three of those years I worked as a waterfront lifeguard at a camp in Austin, Tx. The last 3 years I have worked for Lifetime Fitness in San Antonio as an Aquatics Supervisor in this role I help run swim programming and lifeguard management.

I am currently 17 years old and have been lifeguarding since the age of 15. I love working with kids and making sure that they can have a safe swimming environment without the constant watch and worry of parents. Lifeguarding at events is always a pleasure because clients are in a happy cheery mood and make sure that I am taken care of. Personally, I have been in the pool everyday since the age of 8. I am a competitive club swimmer and captain of the water polo and swim team at Paschal High School in Fort Worth. I’d love to lifeguard at your next event!
