Private Swim Lessons in Orange County , CA

Whether you’re bodyboarding at Huntington Beach, jumping the waves at Knott’s Soak City, or relaxing in the SoCal sun in your backyard pool, water is a part of daily life in Orange County. Sunsational Swim School brings essential water safety skills to you, keeping you and your family safer.

Our private swimming lessons throughout Orange County help students gain swimming skills in weeks, not the months—or years!—like it can take when trying to learn in group swim lessons packed with other kids. In a short time, your swimmer will have more confidence and swimming ability, in your backyard or your favorite community pool.

Sunsational Swim School’s private swim lessons are suitable for all ages, from infant, toddlers, and older children, to teens and adults. Our Sunsational OC instructors focus on teaching beginning swimmers how to avoid a fall into the water, and how to turn around and reach the wall if they do wind up in the pool.

We are also pleased to offer private swimming lessons in OC with swim teachers who have extensive coaching experience. If you need help with your stroke technique, qualifying on a military swim evaluation, or improving your race times while participating on a swim team like Orange Regional Competitive Aquatics (ORCA), we have an expert Sunsational instructor for you.—nervous newbies to accomplished athletes alike!

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in Orange County

Focus on Water Safety

Where do most drownings happen in Orange County? Unfortunately, statistics have shown the answer to be “in their own swimming pool”. Our Swim School prioritizes the “Sunsational Safety Sequence”: turning around and swimming unassisted to the wall after an accidental fall into the pool. We make those the core skills in our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee for swimmers ages 3 and older.

Convenient Scheduling

Why deal with the aggravation of trying to fit kids into the inconvenient schedule at your local pool? With Sunsational Swim, you can create the schedule you really want. Saturdays before lunch? Monday, Wednesday, and Friday afternoons? Two children in back-to-back lessons five days a week after school? Absolutely!

Customized Lesson Plans

Group swim lessons usually teach all students in the same way. On the other hand, Sunsational lessons are tailored to the strengths, differences, and needs of each individual swimmer. Gentle, encouraging instruction and progressive teaching techniques will help your child make progress in their swimming ability in the way that is best for them.

Home or Community Pool: Your Choice!

Pick the pool that fits your family’s needs—down the block or at your home. Why battle traffic driving from one suburb to the next, when you can have a Sunsational Swim instructor that comes to YOU anywhere from Anaheim to San Clemente!

We signed out 6 years old up for lessons 3 weeks ago. We've had 4 lessons per week with Miss Doreen and couldn't be happier! Our daughter started lessons scared to dunk her head underwater and not wanting to swim in the deep end. Today, she's diving to the bottom of the pool all on her own and swimming in the deep end.
My 6-year-old daughter started lessons with Doreen 3 weeks ago and we could not be happier with the results! Before she started, our daughter wouldn't submerge her head or swim in the deep end, let alone swim all 4 actual strokes. As of her 12th lesson (3 weeks later) she is jumping in, diving to the bottom of the pool, and has informally learned all 4 strokes!!!! Doreen has been amazing and our daughter looked forward to having her lesson every day! Best experience ever and money well spent! I highly recommend Doreen and Sunsational Swim School!

We started lessons back up this year 2020 and Sunsational swim school has paired us up with another great instructor. Lessons are going great! Alex A is a fantastic teacher and my son really loves working with her. She is always on time and has a great attitude. She finds ways to keep it fun for him so he stays engaged. She is fantastic. My son is only 3 1/2 and he swims pretty great for his age and I feel safe having him in the water. 2019 We have had lessons with Jennifer Le now for the past few months twiceand she is fantastic. My 2 1/2-year-old has had lessons before but he has excelled so much just in the past month with her. He was very difficult to work with in the beginning with crying and not wanting to swim but she was able to get him to swim and have fun. She was very open in switching days if that needed to be done and getting make up classes set up. Having swim lessons at my home is such an amazing convenience.
Before we moved to our pool home, my kids were afraid to swim and insisted that they "don't need to know how to swim." Obviously that would not fly. I put my kids in a public lesson last summer and they didn't learn anything, so I looked for private lessons and found this company on yelp. I chose the 12 class guarantee to swim even though the guarantee is if you fall in, you will be able to turn around and grab the wall (not technically swimming) BUT at lesson 8 of 13 (promo code bonus) now my kids (7& 9) are going underwater, jumping in the deep end, swimming around, and learning different strokes. After paying, I complained to my mom how expensive it was and she said it will be the best investment I ever make and she was right! I can only imagine from this point on they will start to become better, stronger swimmers. Our swim instructor is Alexandra and I would definitely recommend her to anyone that is willing to also push their kids to do their best.
Miss Alex is phenomenal with kids! We are so glad to have chosen Sunsational for our lessons. Well worth every penny for private lessons, they have so much fun they don't realize how much they are learning. Her patience is unbelievable with our sometimes squirrelly little chatty one! We were matched up perfectly.
Kristen has been incredible and we are very happy with the lessons we are receiving. I'm especially impressed with how she has helped my 5 year old put his head under water - something he has never liked doing!
This is our fourth successful summer working with Kristin Bellows and we couldn't be happier! She is great with our children, has a wonderful, bubbly personality and is so patient and kind. The kids look forward to our sessions with her every year!
