Private Swim Lessons
in New York City , NY

When you look at a map of the New York City metro area, what do you see? Water! Whether you’re at a resort like Great Wolf Lodge on a stay-cation, spending the day soaking up the sun out on a Long Island beach, or enjoying your own pool, there’s no shortage of opportunities to get in the water and have some fun! From Manhattan to Brooklyn and beyond, learning water safety skills is one of the best gifts you can give a child.

At Sunsational Swim School, our private swim lessons throughout the New York area gently-yet-effectively help all students—from infant to adult!—gain the skills needed to be safer in the water, whether that’s in their own pool or at a neighborhood facility.

For those who already have a basic mastery of swim strokes (freestyle, breaststroke, backstroke, and butterfly) and may be looking to join a swim team like the LaGuardia Aquatic Club or another New York team, Sunsational’s private lessons with current and former coaches are ideal for improving your stroke techniques, turns, and speed.

When you work with a Sunsational swim teacher in New York, no matter what your ability level, you’ll soon appreciate the difference between our one-on-one, effective private swimming lessons, and group swimming classes packed with kids at the local pool. You’ll see your swimmer progress in weeks, not months or years. In fact, Sunsational’s Learn-to-Swim Guarantee package means that we’ll provide up to four free lessons to help them perform our “Sunsational Safety Sequence”—recovering from a simulated fall into the pool, turning around, and swimming unassisted to the wall—if they haven’t mastered that sequence after the first twelve sessions!

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in New York City

Our Priority Is Water Safety

The majority of child drownings happen when they are unable to safely exit the water after a fall into the water. For this reason, our New York swim lessons emphasize teaching kids to find the side of the pool, turn around, and swim to the side.

Scheduling at Your Convenience

Want to plan your infant’s lessons before lunchtime? Definitely! What about an evening session for a reluctant adult that’s always wanted to learn to swim? We can do that! The time of day that best fits your busy life is a great time for a Sunsational Swim lesson.

Lesson Plans Unique to You

Our teachers use gentle encouragement and a progressive approach to plan lessons to meet each swimmer’s unique needs and rapidly learn the skills needed to be safer in and around the water. We’ve seen such consistent results with our program that we offer a Learn-to-Swim Guarantee package for ages 3 and up (infant and toddler lessons excluded).

You Choose the Pool

Your life often feels like it’s on fast-forward, right? Who needs to drive across New York or change subway lines multiple times, in order to get to overfilled swimming lessons when a Sunsational Swim teacher can bring a private swim class to your home or favorite local pool?
