What Our Sunsational Swim Instructors are saying...

Sunsational Swim School lets you work as many or as few lessons as you'd like. They're always prompt, friendly, and organized. They're interested in their employees' suggestions and give you plenty of opportunities to voie your opinions! I love working for Sunsational! It has helped me grow as a coach by giving me the opportunity to work with so many children that I couldn't have privately. I absolutely love the satisfaction I get when one of my kids succeed. I even have had the pleasure of being able to work with children that have special needs.

Working at Sunsational is wonderful. I get to do something I love on my time. Besides setting my own schedule, I also appreaciate the great communication from the staff and the quick turn around time on paychecks. I thought I would never get to teach swimming again after I graduated college, but with Sunsational I get to continue doing so even though I have an 8-5 week day job.

I love working for Sunsational because it allows me to work when I want to. My students tend to learn quicker, because I develop effective lesson plans and encourage the parent to practice with their child. I love showing up, and seeing my student swim on their own. Makes my life easier, and allows me to work on more technique!
