Phoenix Lifeguard for Hire Service

Lifeguard Service

It’s smart to use a Phoenix lifeguard for hire service for a backyard pool party–ask one of our many hosts grateful for us last summer where urgent interventions were done by our guards at each of those parties. Did anyone see it? Our lifeguards did, and all were happy.

Price for up to 3 hours is $204 for the first lifeguard; Need another lifeguard? Each additional lifeguard for the same event is $189.  Over 3 hours add $28.50/half hour per lifeguard.  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?

Here’s just one who booked a Happy Swimmers Lifeguard:

We had a lifeguard at my son’s 6th birthday party, Matt. He showed up on time, was incredibly friendly and amazing at his job. About 2 hours into the party the pool was packed with kids. I was talking to a friend when suddenly I saw Matt jump up from his chair, run to the far side of the pool and pull my 2-year-old daughter from underwater. He saved her life. None of us saw what happened and my daughter got lost in the crowd. I cannot recommend this company enough and will be using them again at every pool party we have.

Swim Instructor:

I have been teaching swim lessons for 3 years. I have taught all ages ranging from 6 months all the way up to adults. I have also taught in class settings as well as private lessons. I have experience teaching all skill levels. My favorite part about swim lessons is helping students master a new skill! I have been a competitive swimmer almost all of my life so swimming has always been one of my favorite activities!


I have been lifeguarding pools for 3 years. My favorite part about lifeguarding is that it is always a positive environment because people love swimming! I always make sure to scan the entire pool properly to ensure a safe experience for all of the swimmers. I have also coached water polo as a certified lifeguard so that adds an interesting element to the mix.
