Josh Roper, Lifeguard, Pole Vaulter and Twin

San Antonio, TX

I started lifeguarding at the pool I grew up at. I knew I wanted to be a lifeguard because as a kid I looked up to them as role models. After working at my neighborhood pool for 2 years was offered a Job for a company that managers many pools in the San Antonio area. Working outside of my neighborhood pool allowed me to gain lots of experience and then gave me the knowledge and experience to get to work for happy swimmers with my twin brother.

Katie Spalding, Swim Instructor, Lifeguard, World Traveler and Oil Painter

San Antonio, TX

I first learned how to swim when I was 5-years-old, jumping into the pool right after my older brothers. Since then, I have been a competitive swimmer on my high school swim team and club swim team.
I began teaching lessons at 15, working with children as young as 2 in group and private settings, as well as adults. My favorite lessons were with special needs children with disabilities like autism, down syndrome and ADHD. I believe that every child is different, so there is not right or wrong way to learn – I do my best to adjust my teaching to the individual.
With my 4 years as a Summer league swim coach, I am knowledgable on instructing any level of swimmers – from those just learning how to blow bubbles and floating to advanced swimmers looking to learn how to dive, flip turn and perform proper stroke technique. Above all else, I make sure the learning process is fun and everyone is smiling at the end of the day!

My dream job as a child was to lifeguard at my local neighborhood pool, the place where I spent every Summer growing up. I began working here at 15-years-old, and returned every Summer for 5 years as a lifeguard, swim instructor, pool manager and swim coach.
Since beginning my college career at the University of Texas at Austin, I have lifeguarded for the RecSports Aquatics center. After working here for 3 years, I have been promoted to headguard as well as received my lifeguard instructor certification.
With my years as a Summer league swim coach, I have endless patience, pool games and compassion for working with kids. While my priority is always safety, I’d be more than happy to lead races, sharks and minnows, pigeon, categories… the list goes on!

Serving: San Antonio, Pleasanton, New Braunfels, San Marcus, Austin

Greater San Antonio, 4 years experience!

4 years experience.  General areas I can serve: San Antonio, San Marcos, Austin, College Station

I have been a lifeguard for over 4 years now. It seemed like the best job for me to do since I have been around the water ever since I was a little boy. I love going to these lifeguard events and seeing all the kids having a great time because it reminds me of when I was young and would go to the pool all the time. I love being the ‘cool’ lifeguard that kids can play with but at the same time I always make sure kids are being safe and everything is under control.

Paris Beal, Lifeguard, Cheerleader, Model, and Native Austinite

Austin, TX

I come from an entire family of lifeguards and I love to supervise parties and make sure everyone is having a fun time while staying safe:). My favorite part of lifeguarding is when parents get relief from knowing their children are safe at my pool, and allowing everyone to have a great time! Besides lifeguarding, cheerleading, pageantry, and modeling, I am in Matheletes and memorized the first 63 digits of Pi.

Serving: Austin, San Antonio, and Houston

Phillipe Robinson, Lifeguard & BASKETBALL!

I got into the lifeguarding career with the intention to help reduce as many accidents as I could and save as many lives I possible can. Lifeguarding is just another way I want to give back to make sure that everyone stays safe while they have a good time. This intention guided me to get certified and to start looking for lifeguard positions.
