Private Swim Lessons in Phoenix , AZ

Is there ever a bad time for swimming in Phoenix? The Grand Canyon State definitely boasts an extraordinary number of hot, sunny days year-round, and opportunities for cooling off in the water are abundant. From Wet’n’Wild downtown to your neighbor’s pool, children need to know how to enjoy being in the water safely, and Sunsational Swim School brings those essential swimming skills to you.

Our Phoenix swim lessons teach swimmers of all ages—infant, toddler, older child, and adult— needed skills over the course of several weeks, much less time than traditionally spent in swimming classes at a community pool. In just a short time, your swimmer will be more confident in and around the water, no matter where they swim.

Our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee means that your swimmer will be more likely to know how to avoid falling into the water, and how to turn around and get to the side if they do wind up in the pool. So, when your child takes private swim lessons with one of our Sunsational Phoenix-area instructors, you can also be confident that your child will quickly gain the skills needed to be safer in your home or community pool.

When your swimmer is ready to take their skills to the next level and compete on the Phoenix Swim Club, Rio Swim Team, or another area group, we can match them with an instructor with years of coaching experience who will soon get them up to speed.

And, if you’re an adult who has lived in fear of the water for too long, don’t be shy! We’ll pair you with a Sunsational swim instructor who will gently help you to conquer those fears and finally develop a sense of security in and around the water.

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in Phoenix

Focus on Water Safety

We prioritize teaching skills of water safety—because the majority of cases where kids drown take place in their own pools. Recovering from a fall into the water by finding the nearest side, turning around, and swimming to the wall is at the heart of our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee program.

Convenient Scheduling

Need a late-afternoon class after school or to schedule two family members in back-to-back lessons? Our instructors schedule lessons according your busy calendar.

Customized Lesson Plans

Our well-trained Phoenix-area instructors create personalized swim lessons designed for your child’s unique areas of strength and weakness. These private classes use supportive yet effective techniques to conquer any fears they have and quickly gain needed water safety skills.

Home or Community Pool: Your Choice

Sunsational Swim Instructors will meet you at your preferred community pool—or at your home pool! Save yourself the hassle of battling Phoenix traffic by choosing the location for your private swimming lessons.

Sunsational Client Reviews

Fantastic Progress...sinking like a rock to backstroke in five lessons! Our instructor is absolutely fantastic. I have a four year old and a seven year old. I have put them through public lessons several times and they made very little to no progress. Within three lessons with Sunsational, both were swimming. It has now been six lessons and my oldest can do freestyle and backstroke across the pool. My youngest can float for hours and can swim half-way across the pool.
Thurston was amazing! He took a super fearful daughter of mine and gave her the confidence to not only go under water but swim, and laugh and enjoy it! What a major breakthrough. And my son really adored his hands-on approach. He learned to tread water like a champ, to breathe while stroking, and learned the breast stroke! Thurston is an asset to the swim school and to his community.
We are so thankful for having Makayla Andre give our son swimming lessons. His swimming skills improved from the first lesson. She is always positive and patient, and our son absolutely loved her!

My name is Lauren and I have been teaching swim lessons every summer for 8 years. I have worked with students of all ages from 6 months to adults. I am an elementary school counselor with the summers off! I love teaching swim lessons, there's nothing like it when a child discovers they can swim on their own for the first time! I have worked with fearful students and work to building trust when students are new to the water. I look forward to helping swimmers find joy in swimming this summer!
