Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in Oakton

Focus on Water Safety

Where do most young children drown in Oakton? 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!

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!
Emilee has been outstanding. Our 4-year-old daughter was jumping in and swimming after just 7 classes. She has also been learning very valuable skills to keep her safe in the pool. We can't wait to see all of her skills after the 12 classes.
Renee is wonderful. From the very first time she met her, our daughter has loved her. She looks forward to every swim lesson and has made wonderful progress. Renee is warm and engaging with her and has been the consummate professional- always on time, easy to reach and flexible. We could not be happier!

Shannon is a great swim instructor who understands the psychology of kids and works with them at their level. After couple of unsuccessful swim lessons, we got connected with Shannon via sunsational swim lessons. My son has made tremendous progress within 6 lessons.
My instructor Claudia K I cannot say enough good things about Claudia. She is dedicated to working with the kids, and is a passionate swimmer herself. She worked around our schedule, was prompt and has such an easy going attitude. The kids love working with her and I couldn't be more grateful to have found her. I see a great deal of improvement with my eight year old and four year old. This is our third summer of hiring private swimming teacher and Claudia is simply amazing. I highly recommend her!
Mark has done a phenomenal job getting to know my 3 1/2 year old - where she's confident and where she needs to build her skills. He is patient and methodic about his approach, and incorporates fun into the lesson plan while still staying focused on tactics that will improve her skill. We are only on 4 out of 12 lessons but really look forward to the next 8 with him! Biggest plus for her is that he learned she loves Paw Patrol so he now brings Paw Patrol stickers that she gets at the end if she's done a good job listening and trying new things. He's a keeper!!!
