Los Angeles Metro Lifeguard for Hire Service

Lifeguard Service

Including The Valley, Westside, Beverly Hills, Hollywood Hills, Pasadena, Alhambra, South Bay ~ all over L.A.

Happy Swimmers USA provides Los Angeles Metro lifeguard for hire service for a variety of functions. From children’s pool parties (our specialty, seen on NBC4 News), to entertainment industry shoots, and corporate events, Happy Swimmers provides an incredible staff for all of these needs.

Staff

All staff are Red Cross certified Lifeguards with an average experience of 7 years, many at high volume locations. These are pros, not charming but inexperienced high schoolers. Wherever there is a pool involved in LA County (and many other areas), we have staff ready to serve you professionally to maintain a safe and fun environment.

We are the largest private lifeguard service in the country,

and based right here in L.A. With us, comes a management team and lifeguard staff to fill your needs. We price guarantee our service. If you see a better price out there with our same high-quality standards, professional liability insured, we will match it. We pay our staff very well and have a track record of reliability with our staff most of whom have worked with us 3+years.  Easy to see why we have the lowest flaking rate by far of any lifeguard company. With a pool full of kids, we don’t want you wondering if the guard will show up.

Why hire us over another lifeguard company or even the kid down the street?

We are the only Los Angeles Metro Lifeguard for Hire company that protects you with our insurance for PROFESSIONAL as well as general liability insurance.  Most lifeguard companies carry the minimum general liability (slips and falls) but they don’t carry the more specific professional liability coverage.  

Most importantly, if an accident happens no matter who’s at fault, you want your guard(s) properly insured for your protection.  Similarly, would you drive a car without car insurance or go to a doctor who you found didn’t carry malpractice insurance?  Above all, we cover you and your event, so you can enjoy the party.  

Additionally, almost all freelancers are completely uninsured. Who checks their criminal backgrounds and lifeguard certification status? Our staff is professionally checked for this. We hire the cream of the crop with the best experience, and again, with us, you have a team of managers and a company to back you up if someone flakes.

Welcome to Happy Swimmers’ Los Angeles Metro Lifeguard for Hire,  28 years of keeping a guardian angel’s eye on our client’s guests.

Price

Price for up to 3 hours is $194 per lifeguard. Need additional lifeguards? We discount additional lifeguards by $15 to $179 each guard.  Going over 3 hours for your party? Add $25/half hour per lifeguard. Also, feel free to keep the guards over your original booking time 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.  Above all, we’re a cheap alternative to an accident.  Just recently, one guard made 4 rescues to children at a busy party.  Think their parents thought he was worth it?

In conclusion, we’ve got your back, so you can enjoy your party!  Continue below to view our fine staff and return once you’re matched up to get to know their personal bio.

Cheers,

Jenn Tyler,

Founder and President

Aidan, Lifeguard, Hospital Volunteer and Animal Lover

Los Angeles

Hi, I’m Aidan, while I have minor experience lifeguarding thus far I am excited to pursue lifeguarding with Happy Swimmers; as I am very confident in my lifeguarding abilities. I grew up in LA and also have had my fair share of pool events, so I am so excited to keep others safe while enjoying the pool. I hope to continue on this path to become a reliable responsible lifeguard hopefully for a few years. I have already learned a lot about lifeguarding and I hope to continue learning throughout this summer and next year. A fun fact about me, I am ambidextrous which means I’m not a righty or a left; I’m both!

Alex Sataloff, Lifeguard and Private Swim Instructor

I have been teaching swim lessons for 3 years.

I worked for an old swim instructor of mine for 1 year and have worked for private clients the past 2 years. I love working with children and teaching them new skills. watching them work and master a skill is so rewarding. I have worked with children with autism for the past 2 years, and I plan on studying special education at the University of Kansas next year.

I’ve lifeguarded for a few family friends birthday parties. I love to lifeguard because I love to work around the water. I like to make sure anyone in the water is having fun, but of course being safe. My favorite part of lifeguarding events is when I have the opportunity to work children’s parties and invent water games for them to play. I’m very fun and easy going and work well with children.

I serve the LA metro communities of Santa Monica, Agoura Hills, Calabasas, and Woodland/West Hills, among others.

Areas I typically serve include Burbank, Passadena, Glendale, Los Angeles

Hi, I’m Ara. I’ve been life guarding for about a year now. Ever since I received my guarding certificate, I joined the UCLA recreation center, and have been life guarding there ever since. Aside from life guarding, I’ve always wanted to teach kids how to swim, for that reason I’ve been enrolled in the WSI class, and will be getting my certificate in about a month. To me, the most important part of life guarding is for swimmers to have a great time in the pool. And to that, I’ll be there to keep things safe. My first ever rescue was when I was seven, I managed to lift my two year old sister from under water 🙂  Way to go Ara!

I love teaching swimming, especially to young girls who are either rambunctious or shy, I learned how to swim when I was four years old and I still remember all of my swim instructors. I love being able to help kids overcome fear of the water and share my passion for the water with as many people as I can. I have worked with Happy Swimmers since 2015 and I have been teaching my siblings and cousins to swim since I was 10 years old.

I have life guarded with Happy Swimmers since 2015, and before that I was guarding in my neighborhood for private parties. I enjoy working in a more relaxed, private setting, and I love watching people have a good time while also staying safe.

Andre Flores, Lifeguard for Hire

I’ve lifeguarded for several different facilities both in SoCal and NorCal and enjoyed the learning experience from it! I genuinely enjoy lifeguarding because of the difference we make in preventing life threatening situations. A fun fact about me is I both play and coach competitive water polo at the college and high school level currently, so I guess its nice to learn the game from both perspectives.

I have been instructing swim lessons and lifeguarding for 4 years. I learned how to swim very young in Hawaii and continued swimming all the way until college when I received my lifeguard certification. I was fortunate enough to become an Eagle Scout and teach swimming in the Boy Scouts of America. After joining the Marine Corps I completed my certification for Marine Corps Instructor of Water Survival which is my current occupation. Within the Marine Corps I have been extensively trained in many different water survival and swimming techniques. I enjoy the outdoors and the I feel as though the beach is my second home. The thing I like most about teaching swim lessons and lifeguarding is knowing that I am teaching a skill to others that will potentially save their life one day.

Daisy Torres, Lifeguard , Outdoors enthusiast and traveler

I’ve spent the past 3 summers lifeguarding at pools and lakes in the Northwest corner of Connecticut, where I grew up.

Swimming has continued to be a very important skill in my life, and as a lifeguard, I wish to help others strengthen the skills of their own in a safe and fun environment.

Daniel Ruiz, Lifeguard

Montebello; 14 years lifeguarding experience!

14 years experience as a lifeguard! General areas I serve: Los Angeles, Pasadena, Bel Air, Westwood

I swam and played water polo for 12 years. I competed and won national tournaments in both sports. I swam and played for the Commerce Club Team and played and swam in Bell Gardens High School. Every year since I graduated I have worked as a life guard either full or part time. I have been around water since I was 8 years young and I know the worry that parents have over having someone professional looking after their kids that they can trust. I take my job very seriously and enjoy giving parents a day off where they can enjoy themselves knowing that a professional is taking care of their kids.

–Thank you Daniel for being such a pro! We love you!

David Scates, Lifeguard, Swim Instructor

Sherman Oaks

Swim Instructor role: Growing up in the West Valley with a backyard pool, I learned to swim at a young age and got into water polo during high school and college. Water sports like surfing and sailing are hobbies of mine and I first started teaching private swim lessons shortly after I started my teaching career at Hoover High School in 1996. I still currently teach Health and PE while also serving in my Coast Guard reserve unit in San Pedro as a First Class Marine Science Technician. My son in grade school has been competing for two years on a swim team and loves it. All kids should have that opportunity.

Event Lifeguard role: Aside from the last two years working for Happy Swimmers, friends and family would ask me to act as a life guard for pool parties and functions when I became Red Cross certified for water safety and CPR. A good life guard takes preventative measures to mitigate potential hazards by identifying them early before the function begins. Done properly, pool saves are few and quick. I love the anticipation of potential challenges that each venue may pose and being a part of a random family”s fun safe memories they will have.

Demetrius, Lifeguard & Musical Engineer

Los Angeles

Hi, I’m Demetrius Jones and I look forward to working with you. I have over 9 years experience as a lifeguard working at large, high-end resorts and hotels, as well as small private pools and parties. I’m outgoing and personable, and enjoy working in all environments. I look forward to helping make sure everyone has a fantastic time, but is safe in the process.

4+ years of my experience was managing a therapy pool where we supported people with injuries, special needs and the elderly. My experience there (and prior experience) has helped me develop the ability to customize my approach to meet each person’s needs. During that same timeframe, I also taught swim lessons for 2 1/2 years; I like helping people feel comfortable and love the water as much as I do.

Other than lifeguarding, I earned my Bachelor of Science degree in Recording Arts and have a business doing musical engineering and production. I moved to sunny California earlier this year and am enjoying working here in both capacities.

I look forward to meeting you soon,

Jacob, Lifeguard for Hire and Saver 4 Life

Lake Forest

Lifeguarding has been a passion since I was a little kid. When I was a little kid, I was swimming in a wave pool and blacked out from lack of oxygen. Although the pool had many lifeguards, none of them noticed me. My mom brought me back and thankfully I survived. Because of that, I always wanted to be a lifeguard to make sure a situation like that never happens again and so that I can be the one to jump in and save the day.

I serve the LA communities of Lake Forest, Irvine, Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, among others.

Joya Major, Lifeguard

Costa Mesa

2 years experience, traveling generally in the areas of Irvine, Costa Mesa, Huntington, Newport

The water has been my happy place since as far back as I can remember, but being from the Pacific Northwest, the weather wasn’t always the most accepting of my true love. So I decided at a young age I was going to go to SoCal for college, where I can be in the water year round. With this passion of mine, getting my lifeguard certification was an obvious choice, which I obtained as soon as I started school in California. I have now been a practicing lifeguard for the last year and a half, and I can proudly say I made a great choice choosing to get my certification. It has been nothing but rewarding and wonderful and I look forward to continuing my lifeguard career.

Swim Bio: Hello, my name is Armando. I am a Hispanic male i am 5’10 and weigh about 175.  I am very athletic and love to exercise. I’ve played many sports throughout my youth.  I swam and played water polo throughout high school.  I also played other sports outside of school such as soccer,football, and baseball. I began to lifeguard my first year after high school.  I taught swim lessons to kids from the ages of 5-12.  I really enjoyed working with the kids, they always made my day.  It’s truly an amazing feeling knowing you played a big part in teaching a child a valuable lesson that goes a long way. Swimming is a life skill you must learn in my opinion sort of like riding a bike. I take great passion in what I do and safety always comes first.

Lifeguarding in the Summer is one of the best jobs for a college student I believe. What’s more fun then being by the water and soaking in the sun in the midst of Summer? I remember going to the pool every summer and talking to the lifeguards. I always thought they looked so cool and what kid didn’t want to be cool? I have guarded for a little more then a year now and I can honestly say I love it knowing the importance of saving one’s life or being able to prevent a terrible accident is a very important job. Makes you feel like a bit of a hero.

Megan Friedenberg, Lifeguard, Avid Hiker and Part-time Drummer

I have been lifeguarding for 4 years now and have always worked year-round. I have worked at multiple public recreation departments and swim clubs. My style of lifeguarding is preventative, stopping accidents and injuries before they occur. Safety for everyone is always my top priority and is why I love to lifeguard events (besides playing with kids from time to time!). A neat fact about me is I play multiple instruments and am part of USC’s drumline.

I’m a very patient instructor, having been in education for close to 28 years as a teacher and university professor. I’ve worked with all age levels. The best part of my day is when your child actually realizes that they can be successful and swims to me unaided. It’s very rewarding! I look forward to meeting you and your family!

Lifeguard Bio: As a parent and a lifeguard, safety has always been my number one concern around a pool. I am diligent at my position and take it very seriously. I’ve worked small family parties, and also at large public pools. I look forward to caring for your needs!!

As a young avid swimmer, becoming a Lifeguard was always a focal goal to tackle. My favorite part about being a Lifeguard is the opportunity for people to trust you. When passion leads, purpose follows.

Northridge. 5 years of experience!

5 years experience teaching swim lessons!

Areas served: I’m willing to cover a wide area of northern LA! I go as far west to Thousand Oaks, to the most eaters point of of Glendale!

Swim Teaching: Hi there! I come from a long background of aquatics, and am always up for a challenge! I get my teaching experience and understanding on the mechanics of swimming, firsthand from 4 years of swimming on my high school team. I began coaching in the spring of 2012 for a small swim instruction company based in Moorpark CA, while simultaneously volunteering with the special olympics for three seasons as a coach in the SanFernando Valley. I pride myself on the fundamentals of water safety, on all levels of learning. I push the boundaries of comfort for my students at times (just as in any challenging subject of learning) but never force students, or have them do anything that exceeds their own abilities. I am patient dedicated, and have the same level of respect for ALL.

Lifeguard for Hire work: Vigilant, preventative, and alert, are all words that belong with a pool side lifeguard on duty. I can help bring a little extra peace of mind to any event or occasion. I bring to the table tactics similar to those of my swim lessons. On duty, I am constantly on the lookout for any possible problem(s), and to the best of my abilities prevent whatever I can before it happens. Water safety is my #1priority when I am present.

I hope to make your party safe and fun!

Sahil, Lifeguard for Hire & Nature enthusiast

After 18 years falling in and out of love with swimming, nothing I find rewrites the influence the water has had on me. It’s an effective, sustainable exercise people can spend their entire lives enjoying. My intention as a lifeguard is to protect swimming enthusiasts from mistakes and, if necessary, rescue them from consequence. Fun fact: I share a name with the Urdu word for beach, shoreline, coastline, riverbank…essentially wherever water meets earth.

Tamir Ziv, Lifeguard, pickle lover and belly flopper

I have been swimming my entire life in the pool, lakes, rivers, and the ocean. I somehow always end up in the water, even if I’m just trying to relax on the beach or stay in a raft floating down a river. I have younger siblings and cousins, and am always in charge of keeping them safe around water. As a lifeguard, my goal is to make your event as enjoyable as possible for everyone in and around the pool by preventing incidents from happening. I am a very happy and bright person, and I love the sun!
Fun fact: Even though I love to swim and would much rather be in the water on a hot day in the valley, I run cross country and track competitively and kind of enjoy it!
