Private Swim Lessons in Gainesville , FL

With an average yearly temperature right around 70℉, it usually feels like summer in Gainesville—so it’s always a terrific time for swim lessons! Whether you’re actively competing as a member of the Gainesville Tri-Club, or your child just needs to get enough confidence to finally jump off the dock at Blue Springs Water Park, Sunsational Swim School can pair you with just the right instructor to help you reach your swimming goals.

Our swimming lessons in the Gainesville area consist of private, individually-designed classes, allowing students to work on the targeted skills with patient encouragement and sequential instruction. Your Sunsational Swim teacher will provide one-on-one lessons at the pool you of your choice, anywhere in the greater Gainesville area—no need to battle traffic from Alachua to McIntosh for group swim lessons packed with students!

For beginning swimmers in our program, even in our infant and toddler classes, we prioritize the ability to avoid unintentional falls into the water, and how to turn around and reach the wall if they do fall in: known as the “Sunsational Safety Sequence”. With our Learn to Swim Guarantee package, your child will show their ability to perform the sequence within twelve lessons, or we’ll give you up to four additional lessons at no cost.

Instead of writing checks month after month, thinking that maybe this session will be when your child actually learns to swim, you can watch them make improvement in leaps and bounds in a matter of weeks from the comfort of home or your favorite local pool.

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in Gainesville

Our Focus: Water Safety

Sunsational Swim School strives to improve each student’s ability to turn around and swim to the side after an unintentional fall into the water. Gainesville families have learned to be safer in their own backyards with our private swim lessons, gaining these essential skills in the comfort of home swimming pools. Our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee (for kids ages 3 and up) offers up to four lessons at no extra charge if a student hasn’t mastered our “Sunsational Swim Sequence” after twelve sessions.

Scheduling at Your Convenience

Private swimming lessons according to YOUR schedule make learning to swim easy in the greater Gainesville area. Our teachers can easily accommodate your busy lifestyle, from toddler classes before naptime to back-to-back lessons for all of the kids in the family.

Individualized Lesson Planning

Teaching a person to swim should be as unique as the individual! Our lessons are tailored to the needs of each student, helping them make meaningful 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 we can even help adults conquer their fear of the water once and for all.

Which Pool? You Decide!

From Melrose to Newberry, our Sunsational teachers will work with you at your favorite pool in the Gainesville area, whether it’s a few blocks away or just outside your patio door.
