Swim Lessons in Austin , TX

It’s always a great time for swim lessons in Austin! Whether you’re out kayaking on Lake Travis, heading to Hawaiian Falls in Pflugerville, or relaxing in your own pool, water is virtually everywhere. Learning to be safe in and around water is a critical skill for all residents of the Lone Star State, and with Sunsational Swim School, those skills are brought right to you.

Our private swimming lessons teach people of all ages—infant, toddler, older child, or adult—vital skills in weeks, not months or years like it often takes with community or group swim lessons in Austin. In no time, your swimmer will be confident in the water wherever you go, from your backyard pool to the Gulf Coast beaches on your next family vacation.

When you sign up for private swim lessons with one of our Austin-area teachers, you can trust that your child will rapidly learn the techniques needed to be safer in your community pool or at home. Our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee package means that that your swimmer will be better able to avoid falling into the water, and to turn around and get to the side if they do wind up in the pool. If, after your lessons are completed, your child is not able to demonstrate the ability to swim to the side of the pool with no assistance, Sunsational offers up to four additional lessons for no extra charge.

We also have lessons for adults who may have spent a lifetime being afraid of the water and might just need a little one-on-one help to conquer those fears for good.

And, if you or your swimmer are ready to move on to the next level by participating on a team like Austin Swim Club or Nitro, we will gladly assign them an instructor with coaching experience who can get them racing off the blocks and powering down the lanes with excellent technique. Our instructors can also help adults who are training for a competition like the Ironman or even working hard to qualify for a military swim test: give us a call and we’ll get you started!

Sunsational Client Reviews

I found your company through Craigslist - and was desperate for as many lessons in the shortest time possible for my just barely 3 year old granddaughter. We were going on a big family vacation to river with so many people/chaos and wanted this grandchild to be as safe as possible! she can be an extremely moody and difficult 3 year old, so I was a little worried but she just adored "mr Alex" and asked to have "one more lesson" at least 5x a day! He was kind and gentle and patient and always on time - and yet stern enough to make progress with her! Can't recommend Alex Ott enough! Thanks - your company is wonderful!
I was looking for a private swim instructor because I am learning to swim late in life. I found sunsational swim school and my instructor was Betty a very patient, warm and fantastic instructor. Betty is a very good instructor ... I can swim now, free style, back stroke, and breast stroke. This is great for someone who didn't like to put their head under water. Granted I won't win any races, but she gave me the instruction and tools to be a competent swimmer now. I do recommend the company highly.
We live in a home with a large pool in the back yard without a pool cover or pool fence here in Texas. As a result, a strong level of comfort in the water has always been a key priority for my husband and I with our two young children. When Olivia started working with our almost 3 year old son just three weeks ago, he certainly was "comfortable" in the water in terms of putting his head underwater and even diving for objects. What we were hoping to achieve, however, was stronger breathing skills where he could begin to swim independently for short periods of time and get safely to the side of the pool if he ventured out too far on his own. Through the right amount of kindness, firmness, ...

Jennifer M
Austin, TX
I'm originally from Southern California, and grew up with a pool. I learned to swim at an early age and could never get enough of the water. When I was 10 I started diving lessons at the Rose Bowl Aquatics Center in Pasadena, California. It quickly became a second home, from age 10-18, I was a competitive diver. I was spending so much time at the pool I decided to get a job as a lifeguard. After a while, I was promoted to be a swim instructor. I loved being in the water and teaching kids. It's so rewarding and fun to see how much they improve with your help. My mother-in-law has been a swim instructor for over 20 years and still does private lessons every summer in California. I worked as a swim instructor for about 4 years and always loved it.

I have been a teacher and coach for over 10 years in scenarios such as K-12 classrooms and coaching, Adult ESL instruction, college teaching and coaching, as well as swim instruction for levels A through lifeguard training (ages 0-65+). I was never a competitive swimmer, but managed to develop my skills quickly as a child, then to carry them on to lifeguarding and swim instruction.
