PRO Tip on Mermaid tails–they are fun but shunned.  We’ve seen kids from 4-7 try them on, but without very strong swimming skills, strength, and having some prior lessons with them, mermaid tails can be dangerous to use.  Check out the following video:

Have a safe and fun event!

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.

Karsten Gunia, Event Lifeguard, Full Time Brother and Gym Rat

San Antonio

Lifeguarding has always been an important part of my life since I started my journey as a YMCA Lifeguard when I turned 16. One of the main reasons I decided to become a lifeguard is because my mother who is a nurse, had to save a 3 year old drowing victim and perform CPR for nearly 6 minutes until the paramedics arrived. This child drowned under the watch of lifeguards and if my mom was not there, that young child would have most likely not survived. Being a head lifeguard along with my sister, who is also a head lifegaurd at the YMCA, we are able to enstill the importance of our jobs to the young 16 year old lifeguards at the pools we work at. This is so that nothing of the same nature happens to anyone under my or my guard’s watch.

Serving: Cibolo, Schertz, San Antonio, New Braunfels

Marisa Dominguez, Lifeguard for Hire

Far West Side

Hello, my name is Marisa Dominguez. I have enjoyed lifeguarding city pools and private pools to make sure they have a fun time while being safe. The experience of lifeguarding is so rewarding, knowing that you have made the clients day positive by staying alert on the job and giving smiles to the kids. I will be attending the University of Texas in San Antonio this coming up fall semester, and I will be studying civil engineering.

I serve the San Antonio communities of San Antonio proper, New Braunfels, Boerne, Austin, among others. 

Oscar Fumero, Event Lifeguard, Tree Hugging, Longboarding and Psychologist that loves EDM

Austin and San Antonio

So the yellow cloth I have around my whistle is from the first summer I lifeguarded, one of my summer camp kids gave it to me. Lifeguarding was my first job at 16 and as an older brother, it’s always felt natural to lookout after those younger than me but through my life you can see how that’s extended onto everyone. From my military service to my current pursue in psychology. I’ve always just enjoyed helping others and it sure doesn’t hurt that I love the water, I am hoping to get scuba certified soon. So naturally, I am here as your lifeguard. It’s just a natural environment for me.

Ry, Event Lifeguard, Conossiouer of having a good time

San Antonio

Serving communities including San Antonio, New Braunfels, Schertz, Helotes

Hi! My name is Ry and I have been a lifeguard now for three years. I have experience in guarding those of ALL ages. I love every aspect of lifeguarding and it has been that way since I started. I go to UTSA for biology (I want to become a doctor) I believe that lifeguarding has prepared me to always be ready for anything, think critically, and save lives of course, and these are tools that I will carry through my career. When I am not guarding you can catch me swimming in any river, hanging out with my family, or playing video games.

Ryan Roper, Event Lifeguard, Golf and Basketball Fanatic

San Antonio

I began working as a lifeguard when I turned 15 and have not gone a summer without lifeguarding since getting certified. I have continued to lifeguard for Happy Swimmers as I enter my junior year of college at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas. My intention of lifeguarding is to be able to preserve the safety and well-being of all patrons at private events. I enjoy getting to interact with the kids and families when I am not guarding the pool. A cool fact about me is that I have a twin brother who is a lifeguard as well.

General Areas I serve include:

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.
