Private Swim Lessons in Orange County , CA

Whether you’re bodyboarding at Huntington Beach, jumping the waves at Knott’s Soak City, or relaxing in the SoCal sun in your backyard pool, water is a part of daily life in Orange County. Sunsational Swim School brings essential water safety skills to you, keeping you and your family safer.

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in Orange County

Focus on Water Safety

Where do most drownings happen in Orange County? Unfortunately, statistics have shown the answer to be “in their own swimming pool”. Our Swim School prioritizes the “Sunsational Safety Sequence”: turning around and swimming unassisted to the wall after an accidental fall into the pool. We make those the core skills in our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee for swimmers ages 3 and older.

Convenient Scheduling

Why deal with the aggravation of trying to fit kids into the inconvenient schedule at your local pool? With Sunsational Swim, you can create the schedule you really want. Saturdays before lunch? Monday, Wednesday, and Friday afternoons? Two children in back-to-back lessons five days a week after school? Absolutely!

Customized Lesson Plans

Group swim lessons usually teach all students in the same way. On the other hand, Sunsational lessons are tailored to the strengths, differences, and needs of each individual swimmer. Gentle, encouraging instruction and progressive teaching techniques will help your child make progress in their swimming ability in the way that is best for them.

Home or Community Pool: Your Choice!

Pick the pool that fits your family’s needs—down the block or at your home. Why battle traffic driving from one suburb to the next, when you can have a Sunsational Swim instructor that comes to YOU anywhere from Anaheim to San Clemente!

Sunsational Client Reviews

Our twin boys are 4 and half, and we wanted them to learn how to swim before moving back home. We are so happy we chose to go with the Sunsational Swim School, mainly because we were fortunate to have Gail De as our twins swimming instructor. Gail is one of the sweetest professional instructors we have met. Her dedication, commitment, patience and superb child-friendly skills truly made the difference, and within just 4 classes, she was able to teach our twin boys the basics of swimming, and they are now able to go under water and swim alone over a short distance. They have 4 classes to go, and if things continue the way they are, we are confident they will be able to swim across our pool al...
Gail DeAngelis is THE MOST amazing, talented and patient Swim Instructor I have ever seen in my life! Thank you Sunsational for giving me the best instructor! I look forward to my lessons as she makes learning fun and not intimidating. Gail delivers on the job and she exceeds my expectations every single time.
Scott K. has been absolutely amazing with my son Cole. Cole is 18 months old and while he was never afraid of the water he did not particularly love the water. Now, he LOVES being in the pool. He loves Scott and you can plainly tell Scott loves teaching toddlers how to swim. Cole has improved by leaps and bounds in the 8 lessons he has had. He can now blow bubbles in the water, jump in the pool without hesitation, kick, crawl out and walk along the inside of the pool with his hands. We are THRILLED with his progress and with the amazing job Scott has done! Thank you Scott!

Hi, my name is Melissa and teaching swim lessons is a passion of mine. I've been teaching swim lessons for over 5 years and have taught kids ranging from 3 to 16, and all levels, ranging from complete beginners to experienced swimmers. When I have time, I also volunteer with special needs children at a local community center. I hope that with every swimmer that I teach, I can not only help them learn to be safe in the water and swim, but also help them find their passion for swimming too.

I began swimming competitively when I was 6 and then water polo when I was 12. I love sharing my passion with other people and teaching water safety. I have had the chance to work with people of all ages ranging from infant to elderly, and a lot of experience with special needs children and adults. I have worked as a city employed instructor and for a club swim team in my area, teaching swim and coaching water polo. Safety and effectiveness are my top concerns!

Orange County
My name is Amanda and I have been a swim instructor for the past 4 years! I realized two years ago that I truly loved working with children and helping them become more comfortable with the water so I decided to take on private swim lessons for some of my students. I have plenty of experience with the water, being that, I started swimming at age 5, began competitive club swim at age 10, participated in varsity high school swim all 4 years, and got certified for lifeguarding at age 16! I have taught Red Cross Levels 1-6 with children years 1 to 13, during public lessons at a public pool and private lessons at the student's home pool. I've also been a tutor for the past 5 years, tutoring students privately as well as at the Kumon Math and Reading Center.
