Los Angeles Co. (LA) Lifeguard for Hire Service
Including The Valley, Westside, Beverly Hills, Hollywood Hills, Pasadena, Alhambra, South Bay ~ all over L.A.
Happy Swimmers USA provides Los Angeles private lifeguard 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. 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 with that 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 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. God forbid, if an accident happens no matter who’s fault, you want your guard(s) properly insured for your protection. Would you drive a car without car insurance or go to a doctor who you found didn’t carry malpractice insurance? 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 these. 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 Lifeguards for Hire, 26 years of keeping a guardian angels eye on our client’s guests.
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. 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?

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 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.

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.
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 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.

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!
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.

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 taught and swam all levels. From novice to competitive swimming, toddler to high school, adults and children. I enjoy seeing the look of accomplishment of everyone once they see progression.

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.
I have been lifeguarding for about 6 months now but I have been swimming and around the water my whole life. I’ve been teaching swimming for the past 5 years and currently swim for my college. I love being around kids and I take guarding very seriously, knowing that I am ensuring their safety.

Hi! My name is Lauren and I’m so glad to be a part of the Happy Swimmers team! I have spent most of my life in a swimming pool and have 12 years of competitive swim experience under my belt. For the last few years, I’ve served as a mentor/coach to the young swimmers on a local Arizona swim team. To me, it is so important to learn how to swim, and it is equally important to learn how to love swimming. I can work with any level, starting with teaching to love and be comfortable in the pool all the way through to the specifics of strokes and turns in competition. A fun fact about me is that I broke a 25 year standing record in backstroke when I was 8 years old and that I just got back from working in Australia! Can’t wait to work with you!

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.

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.
11 years lifeguarding experience! WOW! Serving areas from Santa Monica and all the Westside.
I love guarding at different pools and working with a wide variety of ages and personalities. If it’s safe and feasible, I’ll start a game with the kids or throw a ball around with them. I have years of experience as a lifeguard in different atmospheres including camps, private pools, and lakes. When I’m not lifeguarding, I’m working in marketing or traveling the world. I hope to make your party safe and fun!
I’ve loved water my whole life. Both my parents were lifeguards, and they started me in lessons from when I was 5 years old. I continued through Jr. Lifeguarding at Calabasas Swim and Rec until I was old enough to be Lifeguard certified this year. I am also a member of the ELCO water polo and swim team. I am always prepared for whatever comes my way around the water, and enjoy helping others. Outside of water sports, I enjoy drama, writing, surfing, snowboarding, guitar and mountain biking.
I serve the Los Angeles communities of Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Hidden Hills, among others.

Hi there, my name is Paola! I LOVE swimming and working with kids! It’s always fun and an adventure! Swimming has always been in my life (I was an competitive swimmer)! I’ve been teaching this beautiful sport since 2004 with ages 04 to 17 and adults. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Physical Education and I was also a Youth counselor on a cruise ship! I am excited for the opportunity to inspire others to feel the same way I do about the water! ! Be ready to learn and have a lot of fun! 🙂

I started lifeguarding at a summer camp I have been going to for 8 years. Gold Arrow Camp is in the Fresno area on Huntington and Shaver lake. I lifeguarded young children ages 7-15 on the doc at the lake. I have always wanted to be a lifeguard mainly because I think it is an amazing experience but also because you get to call yourself someone that could potentially save a life if necessary. I like Lifeguarding because it uses all of my strengths such as being organized, focussed, while still having a great time in the water. A fun fact about myself is that I learned how to swim when I was 2 years old, I play softball, and I love food from all over the world (I once ate a camel burger in Morocco). Overall I think Lifeguarding is so much fun and I love it.
I serve the LA communities of Beverly Hills, Brentwood, Westwood, Bel Air, among others.
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.
I serve the Los Angeles and Ventura communities of Thousand Oaks, Agoura Hills, Calabasas, Encino, among others.

I have been teaching swim lessons for about 8 years now for children as well as adults. I love being in the water and feeling safe and comfortable and only want the same for my clients. I have experience working with special needs children as well as older adults who are fearful or reluctant to get into the water. I am extremely patient and believe in working in baby steps if necessary to get my swimmers to achieve their goals!
I have been a lifeguard for two years now. My intention when it comes to lifeguarding is to maintain a safe and fun swimming environment. What I enjoy most about Lifeguarding is being out in the sun with the smell of sunscreen and watching people have a great time in the water!

Hi, my name is Will and I am currently a student at USC majoring in neuroscience. I love the water, so much so that I’ve decided to become a lifeguard to help ensure others can enjoy it safety and happily. I rowed crew for USC, along with high school water polo for 4 years, so I am no stranger to swimming and water safety. A fun fact about myself: I’m probably in the gym more often than I’m not.

I have supervised and taught swim and water polo to children ages 4-13 at a sports camp for a summer. I have played water polo for 9 years and have been swimming since I was 4.

Hi, I’m Wyatt! I have swum competitively for six years and have graduated high school. I have only just begun my lifeguarding career with the intention of ensuring that people can enjoy the water in a fun and safe environment.

Swim Instructor Bio:
I have been teaching at a swim school for three years. My students ranged in age from 2-15, as well as adults as old as 70. My freshman year in college I was honored to be able to teach adults with both mental and physical disabilities. Some of which had never been in a swimming pool. I really enjoy making a difference in peoples lives and possibly saving lives.
I am American Red Cross certified in lifeguarding, first aid, CPR, and AED, and have been the sole lifeguard on duty for camps as well private parties for four years now. While lifeguarding, my goal is to provide a safe environment that will ensure that people of all ages are able to enjoy their swimming and water experience. Lifeguarding allows me to enjoy and appreciate the outdoors while watching people having fun. A fun fact, I like to collect crystals and watch old classic movies.
