Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in National City

Focus on Water Safety

Where do most young children drown in National 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!

Our experience with Carlo was exceptional. My son had no prior swim experience and was eager to learn; Carlo tapped into that energy. I found him to be an excellent swim instructor and would recommend him to others with enthusiasm.
When our daughters swim school was canceled due to the pandemic we searched for private swim lessons. We were matched with Megan & got started right away. Our daughter adores Megan, she is kind, patient, skilled, and we are only 1/2 way through our package & we can already see major progress! We are SO happy with our choice to go with Sunsational Swim school!!
Tristan is an incredible swim teacher. I can say this easily as I have had several. He is the perfect combination of calm, encouraging and knowledgeable. He created a very comfortable atmosphere to learn and his enthusiasm and positivity where genuine. He is incredibly patient and that was definitely the reason I got to learn as much from him as I did. :)
We had a wonderful experience this month with James as our instructor for 3 kids, ages 6, 4, and 3. We booked the 12 lesson package with the Learn-to-Swim guarantee because our goal was to get them water safe by the end of the lessons. James was really great with all 3 kids and had them progressing by the time our lessons were over. My 4 year old went from "I'm not going to put my face in the water" on Day 1 to wearing her goggles, jumping into the water by herself, and swimming back to the wall sometime in the last 6 lessons! We were happy with the progress all 3 kids made and highly recommend James!
Kailey was absolutely amazing! My 18 month old made good progress despite being stubborn! She was very sweet and did everything to make her comfortable and learn! Our two year old neighbor thrived during the lessons and every day would ask if today was a swim lesson day with Miss Kailey. Her skills by the end of the lessons had everyone impressed! Definitely recommend Kailey and excited to/hope to continue next summer with her!
Our instructor was Kimberly and we absolutely loved her! Our 3 year old enjoyed his swim lessons and is super comfortable in the water, swimming and getting in and out the pool. Kimberly has a great approach for such group age and my son couldn't wait to swim with his friend Kim! I highly recommend Kimberly for your child's swim classes.

KIMBERLY D. has been a wonderful instructor to work with. She corresponds with me frequently, is easy to schedule lessons with, and, is always on time. We have had a few schedule changes and KIMBERLY has accommodated us very well. Kimberly is persistent, kind, patient, entertaining and a fabulous teacher. She is teaching our "19 month old" to be water safe, and, after 6 lessons the concept of holding onto the coping of the pool and moving sideways to the steps or climb out of the pool on her own is sinking in. Plus, I can't say enough about Sunsational Swim School, so easy to work with, great staff!!!!! Thank you Sunsational for sending us KIMBERLY!!!!! You truly are LIFE SAVER
Kailey was a great instructor to our Benjamin. We had lessons ahead of a family trip and it gave him the confidence we were hoping for to make all the pool and beaches we visited a fun and enjoyable experience. He is now almost fully able to swim by himself and just turned 3. We will continue with the lessons as Kailey makes it fun while encouraging the development we would expect from professional lessons. Thanks!
I just finished my first swimming experience with sunsational and what a great experience it was! Having swim lessons in your own backyard was so convenient. The office staff was professional, courteous and easy to work with.
I had arranged swim lessons for my three grandchildren ages 7,5, and 3. Sunsational paired them with Dayna. She was absolutely wonderful!
Each child had a 1/2 hour lesson back-to-back. She tailored each lesson to their ability and temperament. They all greatly improved their swimming skills and had so much fun doing it. In fact, they wanted more lessons. We look forward to lessons with Dayna next summer.
Thank you Dayna, thank you Sunsational!!!
