Phoenix Lifeguard for Hire Service

Lifeguard Service USA

Happy Swimmers USA provides Phoenix 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 Phoenix. (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 Phoenix?

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

Pricing for your Phoenix Lifeguard for Hire 

Price for up to 3 hours is calculated at check out based on location lifeguard for Phoenix. 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!

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 also coached water polo as a certified lifeguard so that adds an interesting element to the mix.
