Private Swim Lessons in Denver , CO

Although it may surprise you, Denver has an impressive array of opportunities for enjoying the water! From the water parks at Elitch Gardens and Water World to tubing on the Poudre River, there’s no shortage of opportunities to make a splash. Here in the Mile High City, one of the most important skills you can provide for a child is how to be safer around water.

At Sunsational Swim School, our private swim lessons throughout the Denver area help learners of all ages—from infant to adult!—grasp the skills needed to recover from a fall into the water, whether at the neighborhood swimming pool or in their own backyard.

You’ll love the difference between overfilled, one-size-fits-all group swimming classes at the public pool and our individualized private swimming lessons. When you’re paired with a Sunsational swim teacher in Denver, your swimmer will show improvement in weeks, not months or years. In fact, our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee package promises that if your child is unable to perform our “Sunsational Safety Sequence” (i.e. turn around and swim unassisted to the wall after a simulated fall into the pool) after the twelfth lesson, we’ll provide up to four free lessons to help them fully get there.

What if you know how to swim and need to get your racing strokes to a higher level? If you or your child are interested in swimming with the Denver Triton Swim Team (DTST) or another team in the area, our private lessons with current and former swim coaches are ideal for improving your technique in freestyle, butterfly, backstroke, and breaststroke, speeding up your turns, and maybe even winning a few races!

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in Denver

Our Priority Is Water Safety

Most drownings in Denver happen when a child cannot get out of the pool after a fall. For this reason, Sunsational swim lessons emphasize teaching kids to find the wall, turn around, and swim to the side of the pool.

Scheduling at Your Convenience

Any time that fits your lifestyle is a great time for a Sunsational Swim lesson. Need to fit in a toddler lesson after breakfast? Of course! Maybe you’d like an after-work class for an adult who is ready to conquer their fear of the water? No problem!

Lesson Plans Unique to You

Our teachers’ progressive approach gently helps swimmers quickly learn the skills needed to be safer in and around the water. Unlike one-size-fits-all group classes, Sunsational Swim lessons are customized to the strengths and challenges of each individual learner. We’ve seen such incredible results with our program that we gladly offer a Learn-to-Swim Guarantee package for swimmers 3 and older (infant and toddler lessons not included).

You Choose the Pool

We get it: you’re busy! Who needs to drive from Boulder to Aurora for twice-a-week swimming lessons with too many kids in the class? Take the hassle-free approach: have a Sunsational Swim instructor bring a private swim class to your home or favorite Denver pool!
