Lifeguard Service USA

Happy Swimmers USA provides 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. In many big cities across the US. (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,

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

We do a thorough evaluation and interview for all of our US Lifeguard for hire staff. We also are one of the only Lifeguard for Hire companies that protects you with our insurance for PROFESSIONAL as well as general liability insurance and workers comp insurance.  Most lifeguard companies carry the minimum general liability (slips and falls) but they don’t carry the more specific professional liability coverage nor workers comp.  

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’ Lifeguard for Hire,  32 years of keeping a guardian angel’s eye on our client’s guests.

Pricing for your Orlando Lifeguard for Hire 

Price for up to 3 hours is calculated at check out based on location lifeguard. Need additional lifeguards?  Going over 3 hours for your party? Add $28.50/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!

San Francisco

I have been lifeguarding for about a year! Last summer, I lifeguarded at a summer camp on Orcas Island, Washington on the Puget Sound. During the school year, I lifeguard at the on campus pool during open swim hours. I love lifeguarding because I love the excitement that being in the water brings people, especially kids, and it’s awesome to be able to keep them safe while watching that passion grow. As a collegiate swimmer, I grew up practically living in the water, and I remember how much joy it brought me to be able to go to the pool when I was younger on a hot summer day. Lifeguarding reminds me of that by watching other people experience that same joy while I am also able to keep them safe.

Allen Clare| Life Guard | NYC

Allen Clare, Lifeguard, Swim Instructor

Bronx

15 years experience!

Serving the New York, New Jersey and Connecticut areas of Greater NYC.

Ever since a child I was always in the water. Being born in urban New York City my mother wanted me to learn how to swim. After completing all the learn to swim program levels, I decided to push myself further and become a lifeguard. Though I enjoy guarding, however my heart remains primarily as an instructor. Being able to positively change a child’s life, give them confidence in and out of the water is priceless. These are all things I wish to instill in my students, as well as my own son.

Being a lifeguard has been one of the most exciting jobs I’ve had in my life. Not only because it is a great responsibility but as well for the fun. A good lifeguard should always stand for safety, fun and being a good role model. All of which I can I promise to uphold.

Proud Parent to a beautiful son.

Alpharetta, Athens, Atlanta, Buford, Kennesaw, Rosewell, Suwanee

I was introduced to guarding in 1973 when I finally passed a gruesome endurance test to become a lifeguard at a NJ state park on the ocean. Gruesome because the distance and sprint swims were in 64 degree water. I worked 3 summers, took 2 off, and returned for a 4th year. I also guarded at a lake owned by the university I was attending in Florida over the winters. Most recently, I renewed by lifeguard cert and began working at a local Y in October 2021 and have been working part time since then.

Bruce, Lifeguard for Hire, Sneakerhead Commit, & Sports Connoisseur

Panthersville

My life guarding experience started when I was just in high school. At first I was doing it for extra money so my intention was to get paid, now I take a genuine interest in the patrons of any pool whether I’m guarding or not; my goal is to make sure everyone is safe and most of all having fun and enjoying the pools’ environment. And that’s what I enjoy most because my life guarding experience now is better because I’m not worried about getting paid I’m worried about the people at the pool first then everything else will take care of itself.

Fun fact about me is I want to do a lot of things as a career so while I want to be a pool operator one day and own my own Pool Company I also want to be a producer and make beats for musicians and artists while also having a few artists skills myself. Obviously, when I was in high school, I thought I would be an NBA player when it was all said and done so I definitely dream a lot, even now as an adult.

Hi! I’ve been swimming competitively for 9 years and have 5 years lifeguarding experience with CPR, AED, and first-aid certification.

I love ending my day at work knowing I created a safe and enjoyable pool environment. I’ve lifeguarded at various sized parties (even over 120 swimmers) and a wide variety of events.

My composure under stress and observance resulted in the 5 rescues I had my first week as a guard (including saving 2 toddlers at once)!

Hello my name is Dano (Day-Noh),
I have been Lifeguarding for close to 5 years and have always loved the water ever since I took swim lessons as a kid.

In addition, to keeping a safe environment it’s always fun to play some pool games and share some swimming techniques with the pool guest. Feel free to ask for an early arrival time as it’s fine if you need some help setting a few things up prior to event.

In addition to lifeguarding, I spend most of my extra time pursuing my dream as an Actor, Model and Voiceover artist. This is one of my biggest passions in life.

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,

I started swimming competitively when I was five years old (hard to believe that that was 16 years ago!) and I am passionate about sharing my love of the water by ensuring that it is safe and fun for all those who want to enjoy it! I am also a nursing student at the moment (one more year and I will have my BSN and RN degrees) and love using my knowledge to make extra-sure that everyone is safe and having a blast at whatever event is occurring. I love lifeguarding events: I am a big people-person, I love the outdoors, and I love the water! I want to make sure whichever event I am invited to I can help the event run smoothly as well as make it enjoyable for all parties present. A fun fact about me: I just got back from 3 months in South Africa working in clinics and going on adventures, so if you want to see cool photos and videos of shark cage diving, bungee jumping and safaris, I would love to share!

I love teaching people how to swim! I have taught swim lessons for six years excluding my own personal experience with swim. I have taught between the age ranges of 6 months to 84 years old, so I am comfortable with teaching just about everything! I can teach the basics of strokes, refinement of stroke technique, as well as simply getting comfortable in the water and learning how to swim and be safe in water for the first time! Swim lessons hold a special place in my heart because I would never be who I am today if I did not having amazing instructors help me not only gain skills swimming but also making me feel comfortable with my abilities as well as gain confidence.

Baltimore, Rosedale, Woodlawn, Yorktown

I actually started lifeguarding not too long ago! I’ve had a passion for cooking and music, but water was my first love. Since I was around 8 or 9 ( like most of you), my parents decided to put me on a swim team. I saw how the lifeguards looked super cool holding theres tubes and whistles, doing these weird color changes in tubes, it was amazing! The events that Happy Swimmers has the pleasure of attending remind of my childhood when all our friends and family gathered along to splash it out! Here’s something cool 👀. I know how to cook Chicken Curry, a popular dish from across the world!

Jai Norman, Swim Instructor & “The Benjamin Button of Lifeguards”

Los Angeles

Greetings, I’m Arthur! I have been a Lifeguard and Swim Instructor for over 25 years.

I’m from Chicago. I’ve had a beautiful relationship with the water since I was a child. I was on the swim team in high school and the water polo club in my neighborhood park where I first learned to swim as a child. Years later at that same park I became a Lifeguard for the Chicago Park District. I later lifeguarded and became a Swim Instructor at Richard J Daley College and also at the YMCA in Illinois and in Hollywood, California. Since 2002 I’ve been a Behavior Specialist, Lifeguard, Water Safety Instructor and CPR Instructor at a non public school in Cheviot Hills (West LA). I work with emotionally disturbed children who are diagnosed with Autism, bipolar disorder, ADHD and a host of other Mental illness and psychiatric disorders. I love the water, it’s one of the most consistent things in my life. I also love the joy of someone overcoming their fear of water and finally embracing it.

Kendrick Perry, Lifeguard for Hire

DFW

Hello, my name is Kendrick. I’m a recently Certified American Red Cross Lifeguard. In addition to my day job, as a Fixed Income Specialist, I am an Assistant Scoutmaster with Boy Scout Troop 773 in Irving, TX. I made the decision to become a Lifeguard after completing BSA Aquatic Supervision & Water Rescue Training. I developed a love for swimming as a form of exercise following 20+ years as an amateur cyclist, and the addition of a few extra pounds. An important component of safety comes from “Being Prepared” (Scout’s Motto) for emergencies should they occur, but perhaps more practically, Prevention. I have over 6 years experience working with kids through scouting, and believe in living the 12 points of the Scout Law (ask me to recite them sometime ;). As a business professional, I strongly believe in providing excellent client service, and developing lasting relationships by treating individuals the way I expect to be treated.

In addition to the above certifications, I am Red Cross Certified in First Aid, CPR, and AED. I’m Originally from Lafayette, Louisiana and have been living in the DFW area since 1995. I completed my Bachelor’s in 1991 at University of Southwestern LA. I Eventually earned my MBA at University of Dallas in 2002. When not involved with work or scouting, you’ll likely find me either in the pool, on the bike, or thinking about one of the above. Other interest include cooking (indoors & out), geocaching, and in general pushing myself to learn and do new things; rest is good too 🙂

Having a qualified and responsible Lifeguard is very important in keeping kids and adults safe at your events. I’m very honored to be part of the Happy Swimmers Guard Staff!

I look forward to working with you!!!

Lexi, Event Lifeguard, Skater girl and Nail enthusiast

Miami

Most of my lifeguarding experience has been in and around country clubs since 2020 and i loved it so much that i joined happy swimmers in 2021. I wanted to guard events outside of work so that i could meet new people that i otherwise wouldn’t have the chance to! Before that i was working as a swim instructor and as much as i loved teaching the little ones, it was too much on my ears and i couldn’t be in the water every day like i wanted to. That’s why lifeguarding was the perfect amount of enjoying the water while also being able to keep my ears dry (for the most part at least haha). I’ve worked my way up and now i’m an aquatics director and have the opportunity to still work events whenever i get the chance to. Besides lifeguarding, i love spending my time skateboarding with my friends down at the local skateparks and creating art on my nails. Lifeguarding gives me a sense of purpose by being able to help people in need, while skateboarding and doing my nails give me a creative outlet to express myself.

Hey there! My name’s Nathan Wilson, and I’m an indoor lifeguard with just over 1 year of experience. Since I work year round, I’ve had over 60 hours of inservice training and 1000+ hours on duty. I’ve always viewed lifeguarding as a way of giving back to my community, especially after almost becoming a drowning victim myself. When I was 5 years old I jumped into the deep end of a friend’s pool at a party. In a backyard of 20+ people the person that recognized what was happening was my father, who quickly jumped into action to drag me up from the bottom of the pool. An accident can occur in the blink of an eye, and as a lifeguard my duty is to prevent those accidents from becoming fatal.

Rudyar, Private Swim Instructor & Lifeguard for Hire, lover of the arts

Hallandale Beach


Since I was a child I was always close to the water, in my adolescence I spent three years in the national swimming school in Cuba, as swimming instructor since 1996 I worked several summers in Cuba. In 2007 I went to live in Spain where I also worked as a swimming instructor in 2012 I went to live in Sardinia, Italy where I worked as a private swimming instructor for three years, I like this job because swimming is the most complete sport, it is also very important to learn to swim by your own security, there is a risk of death by drowning very high in the world, I personally think that all people should know how to swim or know how to be safe in an aquatic environment

 As a lifeguard I worked two summers in Cuba, before starting in the university, where I studied pedagogy in appreciation of art. In 2007 I went to live in Spain where I also work as a lifeguard in 2012. I like lifeguarding because there is a lot of responsibility in safety of clients at beaches or pools, I like to know that I am able to react in a stressful situation, each situation is different in each place, the work dynamics are fun and also very serious

Boston

I have been working for various lifeguarding jobs in the past three years and have enjoyed lifeguarding even more with each job. I have always loved helping people and hope to go into medicine in college so I feel like guarding is a good job to include my passion. I hope to be able to continue helping people into college whether it be in guarding or not. I like being able to get to know people and kids that I guard. A fun fact about me is that I like to cook and I want to go to medical school in hopes of being an anesthesiologist.

Sarah Isela, Lifeguard for Hire, Wellness Coach & Hiking fanatic

Crownsville

Hi, my name is Sarah Isela! There is a quote about lifeguards that says, “A lifeguard is like a storm shelter, you may never need it, but if you do it can be a lifesaver.” During my seven years of lifeguarding, I have been the storm shelter and lifesaver to countless people. My 7 year lifeguarding career began in 2013, when I received my American Red Cross Lifeguard certification. Since then, I have gained an incredible amount of experience lifeguarding every year: 2013-2015 at an indoor aquatic center (North Arundel Aquatic Center), 2015-2018 as the beach “Baywatch” of Sandy Point State Park, and 2018-present as a private event lifeguard with Happy Swimmers USA. When I lifeguard, I work to the best of my ability to ensure the safety of everyone. If the time comes that I must become your “lifesaver,” you are in good hands. I have handled over 100 water assists, as well as four serious water rescues over the past five years. I have even received the Superintendent’s Award from the Natural Resources Police (NRP) for assisting in a water rescue of 5 people from a jet skiing accident in the Chesapeake Bay. This is my third year lifeguarding for events, and I look forward to working with you to ensure the safety of all your swimmers!

Serena Whitaker, Event Lifeguard, Swim Instructor, Bird Enthusiast, Parrot Owner and trainer

San Diego, Carlsbad

I grew up with a pool in my backyard and so I learned to love the water at a young age. I have four years of experience working as a lifeguard in indoor and outdoor settings as well as guarding summer camp events. My first lifeguard and swim instructor job was at my local YMCA back when I lived in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. After I moved here to San Diego in 2018 I continued to work as a lifeguard and swim instructor in the much sunnier California weather! I believe that water safety is extremely important and so I do not take my job lightly. Working as a lifeguard is lots of fun because I am able to interact with many people while also having the skills and training to keep them safe around the pool!

I first started teaching swim lessons at my local YMCA in 2017. Since then I have 3 years of experience teaching private and group lessons year round. I have the most experience with preschool age groups, but I have taught many lessons from parent-child to elementary levels. The best part about teaching swim lessons is that I get to see kids grow confident in themselves and learn life-saving skills. Teaching swim lessons is so rewarding because I’ve helped many kids learn to not be afraid of the water and learn the importance of water safety.
