Private Swim Lessons in Austin , TX

It’s always a great time for swim lessons in Austin! Whether you’re out kayaking on Lake Travis, heading to Hawaiian Falls in Pflugerville, or relaxing in your own pool, water is virtually everywhere. Learning to be safe in and around water is a critical skill for all residents of the Lone Star State, and with Sunsational Swim School, those skills are brought right to you.

We have the right private swimming lessons for people of all ages, including—infant swimming lessons, toddler swimming lessons, older child, or adult swimming lessons—where you'll learn vital skills in weeks, not months or years like it often takes with community or group lessons in Austin. In no time, your swimmer will be confident in the water wherever you go, from your backyard pool to the Gulf Coast beaches on your next family vacation.

When you sign up for private swim lessons with one of our Austin-area teachers, you can trust that your child will rapidly learn the techniques needed to be safer in your community pool or at home. Our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee package means that that your swimmer will be better able to avoid falling into the water, and to turn around and get to the side if they do wind up in the pool. If, after your lessons are completed, your child is not able to demonstrate the ability to swim to the side of the pool with no assistance, Sunsational offers up to four additional lessons for no extra charge.

We also have lessons for adults who may have spent a lifetime being afraid of the water and might just need a little one-on-one help to conquer those fears for good.

And, if you or your swimmer are ready to move on to the next level by participating on a team like Austin Swim Club or Nitro, we will gladly assign them an instructor with coaching experience who can get them racing off the blocks and powering down the lanes with excellent technique.

With a nearly perfect 5-star rating across Yelp, Facebook, Google, Customer Lobby, and A+ rating on Better Business Bureau, we're so confident in our private swim lesson teachers in Austin, that we offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee! The choice for private swimming lessons has never been easier: give us a call and we’ll get you started!

Focus on Water Safety

Sunsational Clients Love Our Swimming Lessons

Rated 4.9/5 Stars From Over 900+ Reviews
While we initially had issues with finding an instructor that was a good fit for our toddler, we did eventually find one. Sunsational was very helpful and worked with us to find a the right instructor. Abbie has been amazing. Our son really enjoys his lessons with her and has made great improvements. He is 16 months old and is kicking, going under water, and loving the water. Abbie is so kind and easy going. She doesn't force our son to do anything that makes him uncomfortable. She has been very flexible with scheduling and making changes. Even during our lessons if T is getting fussy, she understands and we end the lesson a few minutes or so early. I highly recommend this company for swim lessons. Thank you Abbie and Sunsational!

Our instructor Miss Shelley was amazing! She was so great with my son and his little cousin and before we knew it both of the kiddos were actually swimming across the pool - neither had done so before and were scared of putting their heads underwater until she showed up. She's amazing with kids and brings so much expertise to the pool. We will definitely sign up for more lessons with her next summer!

I love Sunsational swim school after I had this amazing swim instructor named Elizabeth. She has taught My one year old so much in the past few weeks. It is amazing what my one year old can do now in the pool. I will be recommending her to my friends and family now In the Austin area.

Thank you Sunsational! My daughter loved her swim lessons with Phylicia. She looked forward to her lesson each week and we saw so much progress after each lesson. She dives to the bottom of the pool, retrieves rings, swins across the pool and most importantly she confident and safe in the pool now.

Cole has been nothing short of amazing over the last 2 months. He is by far the best children's swim instructor we've seen - he keeps a fastpace, which keeps the kids interested and attentive. He's supportive, encouraging and has made outstanding progress with both of our kids. He took our 5 year old from being afraid to put her head under water in the first lesson to swimming free-style w/ side breath the length of the pool. And, he took our 2 year old from being deathly afraid of the pool to safely getting in and out the side of the pool on his own, 'monkey' scaling the side of the pool & blowing bubbles. We are most grateful for having had the opportunity to work with such a knowledgeable and kind instructor!
