Private Swim Lessons in Highland , MD

Driving kids all over Highland 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 Highland! 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 Highland 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 Highland. 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 Highland swim lessons today and see the Sunsational difference for yourself?

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in Highland

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 Highland 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 Highland 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!

This was our second summer using Sunsational for swim instruction and we couldn't be happier. Our daughter (3 yrs old) and son (14 mos) enjoyed their time spent with Lisa M. Our daughter went from wearing a back-floatie to diving down for treasures on the pool floor. She learned the basics of several swim strokes and Lisa did a fabulous job of navigating toddler emotions with her creative adventure stories. Our son was hesitant to go to Lisa at first so she showed me several things we could do together to get him more comfortable in the water. By the end of the summer (when we were 16 mos), he was holding onto the edge of the pool, climbing up the stairs to get out, and keeping his mouth closed underwater. Will hope to connect with Lisa M. for next summer - she had the best way with the kids!

Carla is a fantastic swim instructor! She worked very well with two 3 year olds and they came really for in their swim and safety skills in a short amount of time. Carla was always punctual and communicated regularly. She has been a pleasure to work with and now we can be sure the kids are safe around the pool!

We had an amazing experience with our teacher Isabella Savage, who worked tirelessly to teach our sometimes difficult 4-year-old to swim. She was forever patient, upbeat, and creative with how she worked with our daughter. Our highest compliments to Isabella Savage and sensational swim school.

We've had a fantastic experience! In the first lesson, my twin boys were afraid to get their faces wet...and now a week later they are becoming their own confident little bubble guppies...best decision we've made for swim lessons! Thanks to our instructor, who was patient and reassuring they have truly grown their love and confidence to bring in the water. Each had their own apprehensions and she tailored their lessons so that each was addressed. Truly awesome..;)

I am so happy that I stepped out of my comfort zone this summer and contacted Sunsational Swim School. I couldn't swim at all or even float before (I had tried group lessons in the past). I took private lessons this time and my instructor for 12 sessions was Kyree Jones.

He was very professional and always on time. But most importantly I can swim now! Kyree was so patient and just a lot of fun to learn with. My goals were to learn the free style and be able to float on my back. I can now free style, float, breast stroke, swim on my back, push off (front and backwards) and more. I actually have three more lessons with him next week so he taught me all this in just 9 sessions, I can't say enough about Kyree. I'm 52 y/o and I can finally swim! He always adds something new each session. I have gotten so many compliments on my progress from neighbors and the life guards since we use the pool at my condo residence. I'm sure I didn't look like a success story on day one, but now I'm enjoying the pool with confidence. I have already found an indoor pool to continue my progress through the winter, I'm so motivated about going to the pool now, whereas I mostly avoided it before. Thank You so much Kyree and Sunsational Swim School!

Rebekah "Bekah" is absolutely FANTASTIC! My daughter was quite afraid of entering the pool without floaties, and after less than 10 sessions with Bekah, she is swimming totally floaty-free and has mastered floating on her back and holding her breath under water. I cannot say enough about Bekah's skill at coaching and teaching even the most reluctant of 5-year-olds...my daughter loves her, and she is a true professional. Bekah is also extremely accommodating with her schedule and availability. I am so glad we were paired up with her, and I hope that Bekah will help teach my son when he is old enough!

I think Amy is great. I am terrified of water and she is very patient and helps me overcome these fears. I am a senior and started swimming lessons several times before but could not overcome the fear of water and as a result did not continue. With Amy it is different, she encourages me to try and is excited when I do well. I can float by myself, stand up and lost the fear of water. I am so happy to be in the water and feel comfortable. I still have a long way to go before I can do laps in the pool but I am looking forward to that day and I am convinced and motivated that I can reach that goal.
