Private Swim Lessons in Kansas City , KS

Whether you’re sailing on Lake Cheney, jumping the waves at Schlitterbahn, or soaking up the sun in your backyard pool, water is a part of life in Kansas City. At Sunsational Swim School, we bring the most important water safety skills to you, to keep you and your loved ones safer in and around the water.

Our Kansas City swim classes help swimmers gain those skills in weeks, rather than the months or even years it can take in crowded group swim lessons. Faster than you imagined possible, your swimmer will approach the water with more confidence, whether that’s at your home pool or your favorite public facility.

When you register for private swim lessons with one of our Sunsational Kansas City-area instructors, you can trust that your swimmer will soon learn the skills needed to be safer in your home or community pool. Our private sessions are suitable for all ages, from infant, toddler, older child, to adult, and our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee focuses on teaching your swimmer to avoid falling into the pool, and how to turn around and swim to the wall if they do wind up in the water.

In addition, we offer private lessons with swim instructors with years of coaching experience for those who would like to work on stroke technique, qualify on a military swim evaluation, or drop times while competing with the Kansas City Blazers or another local team. From fearful beginners to accomplished athletes looking to refine their skills, Sunsational Swim has the right teacher to fit every student!

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in Kansas City

Focus on Water Safety

Where do most young children drown in Kansas City? Sadly, the answer is “in their own swimming pool”. For this reason, our lessons prioritize the “Sunsational Safety Sequence”: turning around and reaching the side of the pool after an accidental fall into the water. We make that sequence the heart of our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee for students ages 3 and older.

Convenient Scheduling

Trying to fit kids into group lessons can often feel like fitting a square peg into a round hole! With Sunsational, you set the day of the week and the time that is the best fit for you. Weekdays before lunch? Weekend afternoons? Multiple children in back-to-back lessons three days a week? Absolutely!

Customized Lesson Plans

Most swim lessons take a one-size-fits-all approach to instruction, but Sunsational lessons are personalized for each swimmer. Our teachers recognize and honor individual needs, differences, and strengths, and their one-on-one lessons are tailored to help your child progress in the way that is most effective for them.

Home or Community Pool: Your Choice!

You select the pool that fits your active lifestyle, whether that’s down the street or at your home. You’ll soon see how much money and time you save when you have a Sunsational Swim instructor that comes to YOU!

Sunsational Clients Love Our Swimming Lessons

Rated 4.9/5 Stars From Over 900+ Reviews
Kingmin did a terrific job working with Blakely. She has dramatically improved her comfort in the water and is able to swim independently. She will need to continue to work on her strokes, but Kingmin provided the tools for her to build from.
This is the best way for kids to learn to swim! One on one with a trained teacher. We really like our instructor.
