Private Swim Lessons
in Philadelphia , PA

It’s a great time to learn to swim in Philadelphia! No matter if you’re tubing down the Delaware River, headed out to the waterpark at Kalahari for a stay-cation, or relaxing in your own private swimming pool, you know learning how to enjoy the water safely is a must, and at Sunsational Swim School, we deliver those essential swimming skills to you.

Our Philadelphia-area swim lessons accommodate students of all ages—infant, toddler, older child, or even adult!—and help them learn to be safer in and around the water in weeks, as opposed to group swim lessons where progress often takes months or years! When you register for private swim lessons with a Philadelphia-based teacher through Sunsational Swim, your child will quickly gain the skills to be safer in your favorite community pool or at home. You’ll love how quickly your swimmer will show increased confidence in the water!

Our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee emphasizes mastery of the “Sunsational Safety Sequence”: avoiding a fall into the water, and being able to turn around and get to the wall if they do end up in the pool. If, after twelve lessons, your swimmer hasn’t quite mastered that sequence, we’ll gladly provide up to four extra lessons at no cost to you.

Sunsational Swim School also has a number of Philadelphia instructors with extensive coaching experience. So, if you’re a recruit for the military who needs some extra help to qualify on the swimming test, a triathlete wanting some guidance for improving your times, or a swimmer hoping to compete with the Greater Philadelphia Aquatic club, we’ve got lessons for you too!

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in Philadelphia

Focus on Water Safety

Because most drownings of young children happen in their home swimming pools, we emphasize the “Sunsational Safety Sequence”: recovering from a fall into the pool by finding the wall, turning around, and swimming unassisted to the side of the pool is the core of our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee for swimmers 3 and older

Convenient Scheduling

You set the schedule according to your needs. From a late-afternoon swimming class for an older child to learn to swim after school, to early-morning back-to-back lessons for three kids, we’ve got just the right instructor!

Customized Lesson Plans

At Sunsational, we honor individual differences, needs, and strengths. Our gentle, encouraging method allows each child to work through any fears and make measurable progress in their ability to be safer in and around the water. Our teachers plan lessons that are personalized to your swimmer—no “one size fits all” approach like you typically find in group classes!

Home or Community Pool: Your Choice!

Sunsational Swim Instructors travel to your favorite pool, whether that’s down the street or at your own home! Choosing the location that matches your active lifestyle saves you money and time.

Rated 4.9/5 Stars From Over 900+ Reviews
My son (3.5 years old) really wanted a "fast" swim teacher. Chits was wonderful!!! She encouraged him in all the right ways and I was amazed at how much he was doing after just the first lesson with her. She's patient and kind but firm when needed.

Customer Review On customer lobby
Heather is friendly, professional and she does a great job keeping my 2 year old daughter interested in what she is learning. My daughter has already learned so much in only 2 lessons. Having my child learn the necessary skills to become a good swimmer in a pool she is comfortable using and without the distraction of other children is great. I would highly recommend Heather and Sunsational Swim School!
Customer Review On yelp
We are so thankful for Sunsational swimming school for sending Heather out to us. My son is 4 years old and he has nonverbal autism and he is very much are drawn to the water. We've had a couple close calls with him almost drowning and we knew we needed someone out as soon as possible. Heather has been extremely patient with him, and he is shown much improvement we will definitely be continuing our lessons with them and Heather.
Customer Review On yelp
Our experience with Sunsational Swim School was fantastic. Our daughter's swim coach, Tom, was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. He took our daughter's swimming capabilities to a whole new level. Thank you Tom!
Heather has been fantastic with our kids. One is very outgoing and one is very shy and reserved. Heather works with them both in their element so they both feel comfortable! It's been a great experience thus far!
Jacob was extremely patient and kind with our son. He went from only swimming with a puddle jumper to now swimming under water with no assistance! In a very short time. Thank you Jacob!
