Greater Houston Lifeguard for Hire Service for Children’s Pool Parties and Corporate Events

Happy Swimmers started a private lifeguard service to families in 1991 in Los Angeles, with 22 clients. In 1993 we began serving Phoenix, and later San Jose, CA. In 2009 we opened in Austin, and in 2011 Houston! We are the largest private party lifeguard service serving the Greater Houston Metro area.

Our staff lifeguards are Red Cross certified in Lifeguarding, CPR and First Aid. Our Houston lifeguard for hire guards are experienced, many from high-volume city programs and waterparks, where they know how to spot an emergency before it becomes one, and keep things low-key and happy. Our staff is insured, whereas moonlighting lifeguards aren’t. We take our business seriously, so you and your guests can enjoy the party.

Price for up to 3 hours is $214 for the first lifeguard, $199 for each additional lifeguard.  Over 3 hours add $28.50/half hour per lifeguard.  Feel free to keep the guards over your original booking 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 of our guards made 4 rescues to children at a busy pool party.  Think their parents thought he was worth it?

Do we serve your area? If you’re in the Houston Metro area, it will be our pleasure to serve you. Book early, however, as prime dates fill rather quickly!

Please note that the only way to book a lifeguard for hire in Houston is through the website.

From swim team to lifeguarding, I’ve been familiar with the water my whole life. I began lifeguarding as my first job and continue to enjoy doing it today. As a guard with Happy Swimmers, I’m here to make sure your event goes smoothly and safely every time (while also being a lot of fun).

Serving: Houston TX

Alexis Sierra, Event Lifeguard and NASA Dive Operations Specialist


I have been professionally lifeguarding the past 3 years. I am a full time Scuba Diver for NASA an train astronauts for their space walks. I am looking for a fun side job but still involve water in some way. I enjoy lifeguarding and being vigilant when it comes to safety.

I have lifeguarded since 2011 and have worked for City of San Antonio and YMCA. I am also a water safety instructor and Lifeguard instructor. I love all things water! When I work events I like helping people safe and relaxed about being in the water.

Carolyn Jiminez, Event Lifeguard, Adventure Seeker


My main goal as a lifeguard is to keep everyone safe while still letting people have fun. I’m taking away from this experience how to have better people skills and how to have better lifeguarding skills. A fun fact about myself is that I have played sports mainly softball for about 13 years so I have learned communication skills and how to work well with other people.

Serving: Houston, Pasadena, Beaumont, Livingston

Ceclia, Event Lifeguard, Powerlifter and Concert Enthusiast


I have been a lifeguard since I was 12 years old! I took Jr Lifeguard classes as a kid and accumulated summer volunteer hours by shadowing working lifeguards. I got certified when I was 15 in May 2017 and immediately started working in June of 2017. I have years of experience in this field. I am also a Certified Swim Instructor, Certified Lifeguard Instructor, and a Certified Personal Trainer. I love the idea of helping others stay safe and enjoy the water as much as I do! Besides my job as a lifeguard, I enjoy going to concerts and music festivals, lifting weights, and going to college for my Exercise Science Degree!

Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston are some of the regions I work in. 🙂

Dylan, Event Lifeguard, Part-time Gym bro and Football fanatic


I took on lifeguarding so I could feel safe and help people around me feel safe. But the most important reason I took on this responsibility of being a lifeguard is to make sure everyone can have fun but still know I’m there watching so everyone can have safe fun.

Serving: New Caney, Kingwood, Humble, Atascocita, The Woodlands

With 4 years prior experience, and 10 years of swimming experience, I am knowledgeable in swim instructing and all four strokes. I trained very hard to swim competitively and medaled in the Junior Olympics! Some of my past students have gone on to participate in the Iron Man.

I have 5 years of lifeguarding experience and over 10 years of swimming experience and a medal from the Junior Olympics! The best part about lifeguarding events is getting to have fun and meet great people, while keeping everyone safe.

Jay, Event Lifeguard, Actor and Model


I am a dedicated and determined 7 year guard. I enjoy the patrons the most when lifeguarding. I can say it has been rewarding to guard at different types of pool and meeting different types of people. I intend to change how people perceive guards from companies who lack on guard training. I am determined to make smiles happen when on a shift at work. I’m out going and very easy to talk to. To me communication is key to everything.

Serving: Galleria, River Oaks, Memorial, West Chase

Maureen Burch, Lifeguard

Maya B., Event Lifeguard, Lover of dancing and music


I am a recently certified Houston lifeguard, with the intentions of keeping people safe while they have fun! My favorite part about lifeguard events is the work environment and getting to see the smiles on people’s faces during the job.

Serving: Houston, Aldine, New Caney, Porter

Meg, Swim Instructor, Event Lifeguard, Lifeguard Instructor (LGI), Triathlete and Coach


My first experience teaching swim was initiation by fire. I was asked since I was a new lifeguard on my first job, if I could teach a swim lesson. That was definitely interesting. Since then, I have not only gained experience and certifications in swimming through the American Red Cross, the YMCA, USA Swimming, various swim schools, and now in conjunction with USA Triathlon and open water swimming. It is truly exciting to see someone gain confidence and the skills to achieve something not thought possible. One of my favorite races was because of the medal earned, not the swim itself!

Serving: heights, Bellaire, west university, Montrose

I have been guarding for 38years in various settings from surf to pool. It has been an interesting adventure. One of my fondest memories was jumping out of helicopters, while practicing drills with the Coast Guard. As an event guard, safety is my number one priority. I want your guests to have fun.

Stephanie, East Coast Lifeguard Assignment Manager and Pack of Jac’s mom

My background is in the legal profession working as a legal secretary for many years. I stopped working to raise two children who are now young adults. My daughter is a teacher in the Portland school district, and my son is an artist who lives on the East coast. For the last twenty-four years, I worked as a Special Education Assistant in the Los Angeles Unified School District. For twenty of those years, I worked with at-risk students and students with special needs at the secondary level. These students resided in a residential facility, and I worked closely not only with the entire school staff but with the social workers and staff at the residential placement. I am excited to be part of the Management Team of Happy Swimmers and look forward to working with you.

Summer Scott, Lifeguard, Swim Instructor & Photography Enthusiast

I have worked as a swim instructor for 3 years and it is one of the most fun jobs that I have had. I love helping children gain confidence in the pool. It is one of the most rewarding feeling in the world to watch a child progress in their swimming ability. I love working with older children between ages 5-12. 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. As a lifeguard my number one priority is keeping everyone safe and stopping disasters before they happen. I am a fitness enthusiast and I am currently in the hiring process for the San Antonio Fire Department.

Serving: San Antonio, Houston, Austin, Dallas

Whit Saunders, Swim Instructor and Lifeguard, Soccer playing and gourmet chef


My swim instructing background is being an assistant coach for my neighborhood swim team where I ran practices and meets working on kids technique. More recently I’ve taught lessons at an indoor pool, and worked with a wider range of ages. My specialties include teaching flutter kicks and breast stroke arms. What I like most about teaching lessons is seeing retained development in the kids swimming, a fun fact is I’ve been swimming since i was 4.

My lifeguarding background is mostly at neighborhood pools on a 2 guard system. More recently I’ve worked a 3 guard system at an indoor pool. My intention while guarding is to ensure all patron safety. What I like most about lifeguarding events is the people you meet, and a fun fact about me is I have two other triplet siblings.

Serving: Houston, Clear Lake, League City, Friendswood

Zane, Event Lifeguard and Pool Shark


I have been lifeguarding for one year and I’m really enjoying it. I haven’t had any major saves yet but I’ve prevented a couple of minor injuries. I want to get to know some new people at these events while also keeping everyone safe. I am also a varsity high school swimmer and hoping to place in district this year.

Serving: Woodlands, Humble, Houston, kingwood
