Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in Santee

Focus on Water Safety

Where do most young children drown in Santee? 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!

Sunsational Clients Love Our Swimming Lessons

Rated 4.9/5 Stars From Over 900+ Reviews
I scheduled my 5 YO for swim lessons and from the time I was connected with the instructor (Grant) to completing the lesson package was a great experience. Customer service is a lost art and Grant gives me hope that there are people who truly care about their job. Grant scheduled a phone call well in advance of the first class to gain a better understanding of what we wanted to accomplish and to understand what works and what doesn't for our child in a learning environment. In addition, Grant would always text to confirm our scheduled class which I always appreciate. As soon as my 5 YO met Grant, they immediately felt at ease and you could feel Grant's confidence and presence. He encouraged where necessary spoke with a gentle authority and above all made sure to have fun!! Thanks Grant and hope many more families get the opportunity to have you as an instructor!

James was an excellent instructor. My kids are now more confident swimmers and love swimming. James got them motivated to continue learning water sports. James was always on time, provided lesson feedback and what each kid should work on for practice, and was always very kind. My kids had the best time! We moved to another area of the county and I hope we will be able to find an instructor like James again. If you want your kiddo(s) to become proficient and love learning, definitely go with Sunsational!

Ms. Christina has been so good with our group of 6 kiddos. We have two babies, two beginners and two intermediate swimmers that make up our group and she has done a wonderful job of teaching each of them at their levels and pushing them to learn new skills every day. We are very happy that we chose Sunsational Swim.

We have loved the 1-1 fun & learning with Grant Still. He has a great attitude even when my crazy 3 year old is splashing him in the face. He has taught him skills and created a level of excitement about swimming for my son. We have all thoroughly enjoyed the time and care put into each lesson.

Grant has blown us away with his skills! His expertise, patience, and age-appropriate sweet demeanor (and flexibility) are only a few of the strengths this coach has. His only character flaw is that he is a Washington Husky. :)

We are so grateful for Sunsational Swim School! Grant Still offered exceptional coaching experience for our three-year-old son. He was so scared to swim in the beginning and by the end, he was a little fish. We can't thank him enough for the peace of mind he has given our family and for the confidence our son now has when swimming.
