Private Swim Lessons in Phoenix , AZ

Is there ever a bad time for swimming in Phoenix? The Grand Canyon State definitely boasts an extraordinary number of hot, sunny days year-round, and opportunities for cooling off in the water are abundant. From Wet’n’Wild downtown to your neighbor’s pool, children need to know how to enjoy being in the water safely, and Sunsational Swim School brings those essential swimming skills to you.

Our Phoenix swim lessons teach swimmers of all ages—infant, toddler, older child, and adult— needed skills over the course of several weeks, much less time than traditionally spent in swimming classes at a community pool. In just a short time, your swimmer will be more confident in and around the water, no matter where they swim.

Our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee means that your swimmer will be more likely to know how to avoid falling into the water, and how to turn around and get to the side if they do wind up in the pool. So, when your child takes private swim lessons with one of our Sunsational Phoenix-area instructors, you can also be confident that your child will quickly gain the skills needed to be safer in your home or community pool.

When your swimmer is ready to take their skills to the next level and compete on the Phoenix Swim Club, Rio Swim Team, or another area group, we can match them with an instructor with years of coaching experience who will soon get them up to speed.

And, if you’re an adult who has lived in fear of the water for too long, don’t be shy! We’ll pair you with a Sunsational swim instructor who will gently help you to conquer those fears and finally develop a sense of security in and around the water.

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in Phoenix

Focus on Water Safety

We prioritize teaching skills of water safety—because the majority of cases where kids drown take place in their own pools. Recovering from a fall into the water by finding the nearest side, turning around, and swimming to the wall is at the heart of our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee program.

Convenient Scheduling

Need a late-afternoon class after school or to schedule two family members in back-to-back lessons? Our instructors schedule lessons according your busy calendar.

Customized Lesson Plans

Our well-trained Phoenix-area instructors create personalized swim lessons designed for your child’s unique areas of strength and weakness. These private classes use supportive yet effective techniques to conquer any fears they have and quickly gain needed water safety skills.

Alena our swim instructor is the best we've ever seen. So great with our challenging kids. Whatever she does is magic, and we scratch our heads because we can't even get our own kids to calm down and focus as she does. What an awesome swim instructor, will hire again and again!!!

Abby S on yelp
We LOVE Tatyanna! She has made my daughter feel so confident and comfortable in herself and in the water. She was able to get her to start swimming without floaties within the first couple of lessons. I am so happy I invested money into these swim lessons. It was worth every penny!

We had such a great experience with Sunsational Swim School! Our instructor, Teressa was a PERFECT match for my boys and such a pleasure to work with! Prior to our first swim lesson, Ms. Tessa asked me specific questions about each of my boys including my goals for them to help her tailor the lessons to the individual child. My boys had NO FEAR! They loved the thrill of taking a running jump into the pool, however they had absolutely no swimming / water safety skills! Ms. Tessa EXCEEDED our expectations! My boys can now jump in and swim across the entire pool blowing bubbles face in...starfish front float then roll to back float and climb out of pool!
I just can't say enough about how far my boys (ages 5 & 6) have come! Thank you Ms. Tessa and Sunsational Swim School!

Cherise is phenomenal! She is patient, kind and really knows how to divert the attention of my little wigglers! My five-year-old started swimming in no time and my two-year-old is on track to be swimming on her own! Great structured lessons and oh, by the way, did I mention we hit the jackpot with Cherise?!?!? These lessons are a great investment for your littles! Don't hesitate. Sign up. The entire process is easy and customer service is wonderful!

Sunsational Swim School and teacher Artjom have been amazing for my 3 year old!! Prior to these lessons my daughter was afraid of the water and refused to put her face or head under. Artjom created games and challenges to make these skills fun for her, and it worked! Artjom is motivational, enthusiastic, has a natural rapport with children, and is an extremely talented coach. My daughter gets excited every time she knows that Teacher Art is coming over to teach her to swim, and her skills improve with every lesson. Very, very happy with my decision to do swim lessons with Sunsational Swim School.

My instructor relates to my five year old in a way that makes her excited to attend the lessons. He is prepared with his materials, punctual, and engages my child. I have seen growth in her skills and confidence in only a few lessons. He is was also open to suggestions and is very knowledgable. I have enjoyed working with him and observing the dynamic between him and my daughter.

Christa has been amazing with my boys. They're so excited for her to come every day so they can get out there to play games with her - without realizing she's teaching them to be fish. Highly recommend!!
Shelby has been wonderful! She is very patient with my daughter and has made this experience really nice and stress-free! I would highly recommend her!

Cherise was amazing, kind and patient. She really worked well with my two littles. They went from barely swimming to jumping in the deep end and swimming underwater. Truly amazing that this happened in 3 weeks.
