Private Swim Lessons in Arlington , VA

Driving kids all over Arlington for swim lessons can be aggravating: between struggling to get through traffic to get there on time and classes scheduled at the least convenient possible time, maybe you've asked yourself 'Is it worth it?'

The good news? There's a better, faster, less stressful way to help everyone in your family be more confident in the water: private swimming lessons with a Sunsational Swim instructor in Arlington! When you choose us as your swim school, we bring personalized lessons to your club, community pool, or even your own backyard.

Everyone knows that kids learn better when they have one-on-one attention, so it's no surprise if you haven't been impressed by the results from your child's crowded group lessons at the public pool. And, if you are a reluctant adult that's finally brave enough to learn to swim, it's much less nerve-wracking to give it a try for the first time in the comfort and privacy of your Arlington home—not next to a class of infants and toddlers who seem ready to compete in the Olympics!

From start to finish, we make learning to swim convenient, cost-effective, and confidence-building. To get started, enter your zip code and answer a few brief registration questions, and we'll match you with a top-notch swim teacher who will come to you: any time of day, anywhere in Arlington. From early-morning sessions to prepare for a military swim test, to weekday afternoons after school to work on stroke technique for a swim team tryout, there's no schedule that our Sunsational instructors can't accommodate.

Does it sound too good to be true? It's not—and because we're so sure we'll deliver the results you want, you can take advantage of our Sunsational Learn-to-Swim Guarantee (for kids 3 and up), if your swimmer is still unable to turn around and reach the wall after our twelve-lesson package. Why not sign up for Arlington swim lessons today and see the Sunsational difference for yourself?

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in Arlington

Our Focus: Water Safety

Our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee emphasizes each student's ability to turn around and swim back to the wall after an unintentional fall into the pool. Swimmers throughout Arlington have learned to be safer in their own backyards with Sunsational's private swimming lessons, learning these critical skills in the comfort of home swimming pools.

Scheduling at Your Convenience

Private swim lessons scheduled at the time that works best for YOU are the ultimate in stress-free swimming in the greater Arlington area. Whether you have multiple kids that you want to schedule back-to-back or an adult in the family that needs lessons on their lunch break, our instructors can accommodate your calendar!

Individualized Lesson Planning

We understand that every swimmer brings a different set of skills and challenges to the water, so our personalized lessons help each student to conquer their fears and make real progress in their water safety skills. Not only do our infant and toddler classes help even the youngest swimmers to be able to turn around and get to the side of the pool, but our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee (for kids ages 3 and up) provides up to four extra lessons at no charge if your swimmer hasn't mastered our “Sunsational Swim Sequence” by the 12th class.

Which Pool? You Decide!

Our Sunsational instructors will work with you at your favorite pool in Arlington, whether it's down the street or just outside your back door.

Sunsational Client Reviews

My wife and I are extremely happy with Carla and the work she is doing with our children. More importantly, our kids love their lessons. Our daughter, age 5, has made terrific progress in only 3 lessons. She can jump off the side in water over her head and make it back to the wall and out of the pool. Our son has been more challenging because of his reluctance to go under water. Carla has been very patient and understanding. I think we have worked past that fear and he will really enjoy the lessons even more as a result. So far it has been a wonderful experience.
