Private Swim Lessons in Atlanta , GA

Are you ready to learn to swim in Atlanta? Whether you’re building sand castles by Lake Acworth, spending a holiday weekend at the beach on Tybee Island, or enjoying your backyard pool, you know that water is everywhere. Learning how to enjoy the water safely is a must for all residents of “Hot-lanta”, and at Sunsational Swim School, we bring those critical swimming skills to you.

With Sunsational, your child will quickly gain the skills needed to be safer in your home or community pool. When you take private swim lessons with one of our Atlanta-area instructors, your swimmer will better understand how to avoid an accidental fall into a pool, and how to turn around and get to the side if they fall in. We even offer a Learn-to-Swim Guarantee for our students ages 3 and older: if they haven’t mastered that skill sequence after twelve lessons, we will provide up to four more lessons for free.

Our Atlanta swim lessons are designed for everyone—infants, toddlers, older children, or even adults!—to learn critical swim skills in much less time than when taking crowded group swim lessons. Soon your swimmer will show more confidence and be safer in and around the water.

What if your previous swimming lessons gave your swimmer a basic understanding of the four competitive strokes—freestyle, backstroke, butterfly, breaststroke—and now they want to compete with the Metro Atlanta Aquatic Club or another local swim team? Fantastic! We will pair you with an instructor whose coaching background will help your child with racing stroke techniques, streamlines, and turns. Athletes training for the Atlanta Open Water swim on Lake Lanier or working hard to qualify on a military swim exam can also take advantage of our private swim lessons; register with Sunsational Swim School and we’ll help you refine your skills and maybe even drop some time!

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in Atlanta

Focus on Water Safety

Because most young children that drown in Atlanta do so in their backyard swimming pools, our swim lessons prioritize water safety skills. Our “Sunsational Swim Sequence” focuses on every swimmer learning to recover from a fall into the water by locating the side of the pool, turning around, and swimming to the wall. If your child (age 3 and older) hasn’t mastered those steps after twelve lessons, our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee means that we’ll give you up to four extra lessons at no extra cost.

Scheduling to Fit Your Lifestyle

Whatever your timeframe, our Atlanta-area swim teachers can schedule your private lessons. From morning instruction that is finished long before your little one’s naptime, to after-work classes for the adult in your family that has always wanted to learn to swim, we have an instructor for your busy schedule.

Lesson Plans for Your Needs

Every swimmer approaches the water differently, from toddlers who are gaining a healthy respect for the water, to an older child working hard to overcome their fears. That’s why every lesson with Sunsational Swim is customized for the individual swimmer, using gentle and encouraging techniques to help them make significant progress in their ability to be safer in and around the water.

Your Choice: Home or Community Pool!

Save time and money by choosing the location that fits your busy lifestyle. Sunsational Swim Instructors travel to your preferred community pool—or to your own backyard!

Sunsational Clients Love Our Swimming Lessons

Rated 4.9/5 Stars From Over 900+ Reviews
We had James for swimming lessons, and I cannot say enough good things about him. He was prompt every single day for our 4 weeks of lessons, absolutely engaged during the lesson, and knew how to manage the different personalities of children. One of our son's classmates took right after our son's lesson ended each day, and she has a very different learning style from our son, and James catered to both incredibly well. If you choose to take lessons from Sunsational, request James. We had a NOT great experience with an instructor before this, and having James was a 180 in every way. Our kids STILL ask about James and when they'll get to go swimming with him again.

Sunsational was very easy to work with. They were very communicative and matched us promptly with an instructor, whom my kids loved. Our instructor, Alexa, was amazing with kids and as patient as they come (my kids' ages are 3 1/2 and 2). My 3 1/2 is now an avid swimmer and my 2 year old is so comfortable with the water, she will be swimming come next summer in no time. I highly recommend this company, although pricier, they certainly take good care of you.

Alexa has been wonderful. She and my daughter quickly formed a bond, which the lessons and learn quickly. My daughter took group swim lessons for over a year and did not improve at all. Now, after only 12 lessons, she can swim the length of the pool by herself! I am so impressed!

Great instructor! Coach Jackson was patient with my 1 and 3-year-old girls. They hated the water at first but now they love it and get excited when they see Coach Jackson. My 3-year-old was swimming in just a couple of days. I highly recommend
