Private Swim Lessons in Los Angeles , CA

It’s always a Sunsational time to learn to swim in Southern California! When you sign up for private swim lessons with our Los Angeles-area swim instructors, you can rest assured that your child will make rapid progress with the essential safety skills needed in and around the water. Our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee focuses on your swimmer’s ability to turn around and get to the wall unassisted if they fall into the pool: if your child can’t demonstrate that “Sunsational Swim Sequence” by the twelfth lesson, we’ll give you up to four additional classes for free!

Our Los Angeles swim lessons are perfect for learners of all ages—infants, toddlers, older children, and adults!—to improve their swimming ability in a matter of weeks. After several one-on-one lessons, your swimmer will show increased confidence, safety, and skills in the water, whether in your own backyard pool or at a community pool in the Los Angeles-area.

When your child is ready to race with the Los Angeles Swim Club or one of the many other local teams, we’ll match them with an instructor with current or prior coaching experience, to improve their racing form and technique and become a better competitor. We also offer private swim lessons for athletes wanting to train for the Los Angeles Triathlon or for a military swim test; we’ve got a Sunsational instructor to help you with all of your swimming needs!

Catching some waves at Surfrider Beach in Malibu? Or just relaxing in your own pool? From beaches to backyards, gaining the skills to enjoy the water more safely is a must for everyone living in the Golden State. Sunsational Swim School brings those essential swim skills to you!

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in Los Angeles

Water Safety Focus

We emphasize water safety skills at Sunsational Swim School. Why? Tragically, the majority of drownings in the Los Angeles area that involve young children happen in private pools. Learning how to recover from an accidental fall into the water by finding the wall, turning around, and swimming to the side of the pool is the “Sunsational Swim Sequence” in our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee: if, after twelve lessons, your child (3 and older) has not mastered those steps, we give you up to four additional classes for free!

Convenient Scheduling

You may have to squeeze into your swimsuit, but you don’t have to squeeze our lessons into your calendar! If your Tuesdays and Thursdays are just too hectic, you can schedule lessons for a lazy Saturday morning or a peaceful Friday afternoon. Your Sunsational swimming class fits your schedule, not the other way around.

Individualized Lesson Plans

Our experienced teachers make lesson plans guided by each swimmer’s needs and strengths, because every student learns to swim differently. Sunsational’s classes utilize gentle, encouraging techniques so that kids and adults can conquer fears and learn to swim more quickly.

Home or Community Pool: Your Choice!

You save time and money when you can choose the location that works best for your family. Sunsational Swim Instructors teach lessons at the Los Angeles-area pool you choose—in your neighborhood or in your backyard!

Sunsational Client Reviews

We contacted Sunsational and they put us in contact with Christina to teach our 6 year old son how to swim. The process was easy and our son took to Christina right away. With a pool in our backyard we needed to get our son safety ready. He was swimming the length of the pool after four lessons. My wife and I were amazed. Last year he wouldn't put his head underwater and how he's turned into a fish.Thanks Sunsational
This is the second year I have used Sunsational Swim School for private lessons for my two children and I am thrilled with how quickly they have excelled in the water. My 6 year old, usually fearless, still had some reservations in the pool, but with the great care, patience and guidance of Romy, our swim instructor this summer, she is thrilled to be in the water, under the water, and all over the place and all sense of fear is GONE. And my older child is continuing to learn proper strokes and techniques and is flourishing in his swim abilities. He just loved every minute of it. Thank you again, Romy! You were wonderful!!!
I love sunsational!! I was let down by other independent swim instructors who said the would come to my home and flaked after the first lesson. Waleska one of their swim instructor was very professional. She taught my children all kinds of swimming techniques. I feel comfortable with them in the water. She was really nice and my kids loved her.

Bio: I have nine years experience on swimming, diving, and water polo teams. I've worked two seasons as a lifeguard, I have three years experience as a junior coach and swim instructor. I love to work with children of varying skill levels and experience, from basic technique to advance stroke development. Swimming should be fun! The best way for anyone to have a good time swimming is to know they are safe and understand how to sustain themselves in many aquatic situations.

I have been teaching swim lessons for almost 10 years. I have found it to be a very rewarding job and I really enjoy being able to gain a child's trust and see them grow not only as swimmers but also gain self confidence. I've worked with children in day camp and after school settings and have found that nothing has been as meaningful as the lasting effects of teaching them to swim because it is an essential skill to know especially in a beach town like San Diego!
