Private Swim Lessons in San Jose , CA

If you’ve ever had to haul kids to and from group swim lessons in San Jose, you know how daunting it can be. There’s the traffic. There’s the waiting around. There’s the having to rearrange your schedule, your kids’ other activities, and your mealtimes. Sunsational Swim School flips the equation, delivering private swim lessons in San Jose when and where it’s convenient for you.

Known as the “Capital of Silicon Valley,” San Jose’s culture is one of working hard and playing hard. With more than 300 days of sunshine each year, swimming is a go-to activity for working out and enjoying hot summer days with the kids at your home pool.

Kids’ swim teams are abundant, and community pools are popular family hangouts. All the more reason for infants, toddlers, children, and adults to be proficient swimmers.

But typical San Jose swim lessons just don’t make the grade. In group lessons, most of the class waits at the edge of the pool while a swim instructor in San Jose works one-on-one with each student in turn. If a child has a fear of the water or needs extra help, it’s simply not available. If a toddler starts paddling like a little fish, there’s no easy way to quickly advance.

In contrast, Sunsational’s private swimming lessons in San Jose are tailored to the needs of the student. A top-rated swim teacher in San Jose develops a lesson plan that meets the parent’s or student’s goals, and then works at an appropriate pace for the student.

It’s easy to get started with Sunsational. Just enter your zip code, complete a quick registration form, and get matched with the perfect swim instructor in San Jose. They’ll come to your backyard pool, community pool, country club pool or any other pool that works for you. They’ll arrive when it’s convenient for you. And they’ll deliver the progress you want. That’s why we offer the Sunsational Learn-to-Swim Guarantee and the 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.

Sunsational Client Reviews

Jana M. from Sunsational Swim School is amazing. She went above and beyond my expectations every session. She was able to teach my oldest (7), who could already maneuver himself in the water, proper technique and prep him for entry to pre-swim team. My youngest(5) feared the pool. He was pushed into a pool when he was 3 and was never comfortable in the water - he always held onto the side. Half way through our lessons, he was able to jump from the deep end and safely swimming to the side on his own. He also got an intro into strokes as well. I knew Jana M. was amazing when she was able to connect with my kids during the first session and make them do things they were not able to do with oth...
Jeff Steele from Sunsational Swim School was the swim instructor for my 5 year old son and my 2 year old daughter.In 12 lessons, my son went from being too scared to put his head in the water to being able to freestyle swim for a fair amount of distance in the pool. His growth each lesson has been astounding - he could flip in the water after his second lesson, float after his fourth, etc - and he keeps asking for more lessons with "Mr. Jeff" because he's so excited by his own progress. My son had previously taken group swim classes and gotten comfortable in the water but not much else, so the massive progress that he made is in my mind primarily due to Jeff's instruction.I don't have a bad...
Linda was an excellent swim instructor! She was very encouraging, patient, and very supportive. My confidence in the water and my swimming technique have both improved greatly due to her excellent instruction!
