  • Drowning is the leading cause of acciden-tal death for children under the age of 5. (American Institute for Preventative Medicine).

  • A child can drown in just a few inches of water, silently, and in a matter of seconds.

  • Of preschoolers who drown, the vast majority (70 percent) are in the care of at least one parent.

  • Of pool drownings among preschoolers, 98 percent occur in the child’s pool or the pool of a friend, neighbor or rela-tive. (National Center for Injury Prevention & Control)

  • For every child who drowns, another four are hospitalized, and 16 receive emergency depart-ment care for near-drowning. (American Academy of Pediatrics)

...and many more important child safety skills



We provide professional, fully insured, highly experienced Red Cross certified Lifeguards to supervise your pool party activity, keeping the kids safe, and giving you peace-of-mind. All of our staff are also current in CPR and First Aid certifications.


How much notice is needed for booking us?

Many times we can fill last minute orders, yet to guarantee a specific date, 1-2 weeks notice is preferred. If booking with less than 72 hours/3 days notice (example booking on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday for a Saturday party) we include a $30 rush fee for these orders.  

How many lifeguards are needed?

This depends on the age group of the swimmers at the party, and the expected head count.  We recommend one lifeguard  per 15 swimmers of varying abilities.

Do the lifeguards conduct entertainment activities?

Our lifeguards are all highly personable and intend to have the kids have a fun, safe experience in the pool. Their key job is watching the pool completely. If the lifeguard feels confident in the swimming skills of all the kids present, he or she can coordinate some relay races, sharks and minnows games, etc. but must maintain supervision from the deck for safety of all. If you are hiring two lifeguards, more flexibility in duties could be arranged with prior approval from our office.

Cost: For a party of 3 hours or less we charge a $100 flat fee.  This is for one lifeguard. After 3 hours, each additional hour is $50 per lifeguard. In rare events, if you would need to cancel our services with less than 48 hours notice of the party date, we will charge 25% of the booking. If canceling with more than 48 hour notice, we give a full refund. Payments due in full prior to event date. Any tip you'd like to give after the party to the guards can be made in cash and received with thanks. Your satisfaction is guaranteed.  

It’s the smartest insurance policy you could have for everyone present!
