Lifeguards Giving Lessons

Lifeguard network

Our lifeguards and swimming instructors show up on time and are incredibly friendly and very responsible.

WeLifeguard provides a network directory of certified lifeguards for private parties water events. is a 501(c)(3) registered non-profit. The service is provided to the community for free with one purpose in mind: prevent drownings. Our goal is to make it easier for everyone to find certified lifeguards.  Instead of searching for local lifeguards, we bring the information to you so you can easily hire a lifeguard for your event.  The goal is for hosts at water events to be able to find lifeguards, and for lifeguards to be able to find employment.  We don't supervise the lifeguards and we don't hire them.  There is no fee to use WeLifeguard. The lifeguards don't pay to be listed, and the hosts don't pay either.

How Much Notice To Book A Lifeguard:

As soon as you have the date for your event, you should hire your lifeguard.  Remember, the lifeguards on our directory also work at town pools, parks, and beaches.  The lifeguards are students, so plan early so they can plan their schedules to best accommodate private events.

How Many Lifeguards Do I Need:

One lifeguard is usually sufficient for up to 10-15 swimmers.  For more than 12 swimmers, there must be two guards.  If there are a lot of younger swimmers under the age of 4, we suggest the ratio be 1 lifeguard per 10.  Remember, lifeguards save adults and children.  Safety is our key priority.
