Atlanta Lifeguard for Hire Service

Lifeguard Service USA

Happy Swimmers USA provides Atlanta 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.


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 Atlanta. (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 in Atlanta?

We do a thorough evaluation and interview for all of our Atlanta Lifeguard for hire staff. We also are one of the only Atlanta 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’ Atlanta Lifeguard for Hire,  32 years of keeping a guardian angel’s eye on our client’s guests.

Our Lifeguard Service Staff Members in Atlanta

Bennett, Lifeguard for Hire, Part-time Beach Bum and Sun Lover


I started lifeguarding at my neighborhood pool and found post-season employment at Goldfish Swim School. The little kids I worked with there were great and I even enjoyed working with the babies (despite the crying). I stumbled upon Happy Swimmers as I was looking for new ways to use my certification. I feel fortunate to have found such a flexible workplace with such a great staff! This is my second year with Happy Swimmers. The families and clients I work with are always friendly and courteous. Hard to say how many times I’ve been thrown in the pool at birthday parties! I just renewed my certification and plan to continue summers with Happy Swimmers until I graduate college. After that, I’m off to live as a pilot…where I’m sure my CPR and life-saving skills might come in handy!

Serving: Roswell, Alpharetta, Marietta, Woodstock are areas I commonly serve.

Bob Rosen, Event Lifeguard, Retired enjoying life and family


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. I enjoy my coworkers and the Y community and try to make everyone’s experience at the pool as welcoming and safe as possible.

Serving: Atlanta

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


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.

I serve the Atlanta communities of Decatur, Atlanta proper, Covington, & Brookhaven

Daisy Torres, Lifeguard , Outdoors enthusiast and traveler

I’ve spent the past 3 summers lifeguarding at pools and lakes in the Northwest corner of Connecticut, where I grew up. I knew how to swim before I could walk, and my love for the water turned into a real passion for guarding and water safety. Swimming has continued to be a very important skill in my life, and as a lifeguard, I wish to help others strengthen the skills of their own in a safe and fun environment.

My journey as a lifeguard all started during my senior year in High school. Around that time, I partake in my school’s swimming team, water polo team as well as basketball team. I always had a passion to become a lifeguard as a part time while attending school. I loved surveilling patrons while enforcing the rules to prevent any incident that may occur. More importantly, I took a major interest in attending Private parties as a lifeguard at an early stage in my lifeguard career. The host were always courteous towards me and provided me with utmost respect. Fun fact about me is I have a collection of well known colognes and rare colognes.

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.
