Private Swim Lessons in San Marcos , TX

Driving kids all over San Marcos for swim lessons can be aggravating: between struggling to get through traffic to get there on time and classes scheduled at the least convenient possible time, maybe you've asked yourself 'Is it worth it?'

The good news? There's a better, faster, less stressful way to help everyone in your family be more confident in the water: private swimming lessons with a Sunsational Swim instructor in San Marcos! When you choose us as your swim school, we bring personalized lessons to your club, community pool, or even your own backyard.

Everyone knows that kids learn better when they have one-on-one attention, so it's no surprise if you haven't been impressed by the results from your child's crowded group lessons at the public pool. And, if you are a reluctant adult that's finally brave enough to learn to swim, it's much less nerve-wracking to give it a try for the first time in the comfort and privacy of your San Marcos home—not next to a class of infants and toddlers who seem ready to compete in the Olympics!

From start to finish, we make learning to swim convenient, cost-effective, and confidence-building. To get started, enter your zip code and answer a few brief registration questions, and we'll match you with a top-notch swim teacher who will come to you: any time of day, anywhere in San Marcos. From early-morning sessions to prepare for a military swim test, to weekday afternoons after school to work on stroke technique for a swim team tryout, there's no schedule that our Sunsational instructors can't accommodate.

Does it sound too good to be true? It's not—and because we're so sure we'll deliver the results you want, you can take advantage of our Sunsational Learn-to-Swim Guarantee (for kids 3 and up), if your swimmer is still unable to turn around and reach the wall after our twelve-lesson package. Why not sign up for San Marcos swim lessons today and see the Sunsational difference for yourself?

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in San Marcos

Our Focus: Water Safety

Our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee emphasizes each student's ability to turn around and swim back to the wall after an unintentional fall into the pool. Swimmers throughout San Marcos have learned to be safer in their own backyards with Sunsational's private swimming lessons, learning these critical skills in the comfort of home swimming pools.

Scheduling at Your Convenience

Private swim lessons scheduled at the time that works best for YOU are the ultimate in stress-free swimming in the greater San Marcos area. Whether you have multiple kids that you want to schedule back-to-back or an adult in the family that needs lessons on their lunch break, our instructors can accommodate your calendar!

Individualized Lesson Planning

We understand that every swimmer brings a different set of skills and challenges to the water, so our personalized lessons help each student to conquer their fears and make real progress in their water safety skills. Not only do our infant and toddler classes help even the youngest swimmers to be able to turn around and get to the side of the pool, but our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee (for kids ages 3 and up) provides up to four extra lessons at no charge if your swimmer hasn't mastered our “Sunsational Swim Sequence” by the 12th class.

Sunsational Clients Love Our Swimming Lessons

Rated 4.9/5 Stars From Over 900+ Reviews
I was so thankful for the little extra things Claire thought of, like teaching my daughter to climb out of the deep end... you never know where stairs may or may not be. She also always kept safety lessons on the top of the list which is so important to us. My daughter is 2 1/2 and SO close to swimming. I'm so impressed.
Both of our swim instructors from Sunsational (Ashley and Reilly) were wonderful. We could not believe the progress that my 3-year-old made in just a few weeks this summer, going from clinging to my neck to swimming across the pool on his own. And he loved going to his lessons because he was having fun. The instructors were easy to work with, great with kids and a pleasure to have around. We are so grateful to Ashley and Reilly and highly recommend them both.

I love Sunsational swim school after I had this amazing swim instructor named Elizabeth. She has taught My one year old so much in the past few weeks. It is amazing what my one year old can do now in the pool. I will be recommending her to my friends and family now In the Austin area.
David B. is a wonderful instructor and has truly transformed my 6 year old son who was terrified of the water and refused to even put his head in. We had tried various swim schools and private lessons in the past with no luck. My husband and I are in shock as now he is a completely different child, doing cannon balls, begging to swim every day, and making it across the pool. My older son (who already knew the basics), has learned the proper technique and has gained a lot of speed and stamina. Admittedly I was skeptical of the other testimonials but they are absolutely true! David is a miracle worker and we are so grateful not only for the critical safety skills my son is learning but even just loving the water. It is clear he is VERY experienced not just as a former competitive swimmer and coach but as a parent who gets my boys. He was the perfect fit for our family- thank you Coach David and Sunsational for the ideal match! We couldn't be more pleased. Highly recommend.
Because of our positive experience with Marie W. in 2016, we resumed private swim lessons with Sunsational Swim School when the weather warmed up in spring/summer 2017. Fortunately, Marie was available to instruct our son again, and we continued with her (I think it was 12 sessions or so) until the end of the summer. As before, she was excellent! All of the positive things we wrote before (e.g., great energy, very friendly, adaptive) continued to be true, even during those times when our son was not very cooperative. We continue to highly recommend Marie as a swim instructor and hope to work with her again!
Teresa was a great instructor. My four year old daughter learned at an incredibly fast pace. She made continual progress from lesson to lesson, and became a great swimmer in just 12 45 minute lessons. This program is very efficient. I couldn't imagine my daughter learning more in such a short period of time. It is well worth the money and the time savings. .
Sunsational Swim school was amazing!! My son's coach was Marie W. and I seriously can't say enough great things about her! She was AMAZING! My son is 2 & 1/2 and he's a tough customer. Marie was patient, kind, fun, & gave 100% every lesson! She played fun games and came up with on the spot ideas to help get my son engaged and interested. Right away he trusted her and bonded. He couldn't wait to go to swim lessons every day to see Ms. Marie! Highly recommend Marie!!! Thanks for everything Sunsational Swim and Marie!! Thanks to you, my son is swimming like a fish!
SO happy I took a chance and booked Sunsational Swim School and that they connected us with our teacher, Mrs. Frances. My 5.5 yo boy is sweet, sensitive, and very cautious. Mrs. Frances has made such a strong effort to teach him swimming with this in mind. This makes swimming lessons incredibly enjoyable for everyone. My son is excited to see her each time. Mrs. Frances is always on time and is great at communicating. We appreciate her so much.
Thank you Sunsational! My daughter loved her swim lessons with Phylicia. She looked forward to her lesson each week and we saw so much progress after each lesson. She dives to the bottom of the pool, retrieves rings, swins across the pool and most importantly she confident and safe in the pool now.
