Private Swim Lessons in Seattle , WA

Whether you’re kayaking Puget Sound, taking a dip at Madison Park Beach, or catching some rays on the deck of your backyard pool, water is a part of Seattle life. Sunsational Swim School brings essential water safety skills to you, to help keep you and your family safer in and around the water.

When you sign up for private swim lessons with a Sunsational Seattle-area instructor, your swimmer will rapidly learn the skills they need in your home or community pool. Our one-on-one classes are ideal for students of all ages, from infant, toddler, older child, to adult, and Sunsational’s exclusive Learn-to-Swim Guarantee centers on your child’s ability to avoid a fall into the water, and how to turn around and swim to the side if they do end up in the pool.

Our swim classes in Seattle effectively teach swimmers those skills in weeks, not the months or even years you’ve seen it take when your child has participated in group swim lessons. Within the first twelve lessons, your swimmer will demonstrate significant progress in their water safety skills and confidence at your home or your favorite local pool.

For students who have mastered the basic strokes, we also offer private lessons with swim teachers with current and prior coaching experience to help you with your goals: work on stroke technique, qualify on a military swim test, or improve times while competing with Cascade Swim Club or Seattle-area team.

From nervous beginners to skilled athletes working on improving their skills, Sunsational Swim has the right instructor to fit every swimmer!

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in Seattle

Focus on Water Safety

Where do most drownings of young children happen in Seattle? Tragically, the answer is “in their own pool”. That’s why our instructors emphasize the “Sunsational Safety Sequence”: how to turn around and get to the safety of the wall after an unintentional fall into the pool. We’ve made that sequence the core of our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee for swimmers ages 3 and up.

Convenient Scheduling

Does trying to fit kids into the class schedule at your local pool feel like fitting a square peg into a round hole? With Sunsational Swim School, you choose the day and time that works for your family. Weekends before breakfast? Weekday evenings? Twin toddlers in back-to-back sessions four days a week? We can do that!

Customized Lesson Plans

Most group lessons use one-size-fits-all techniques, expecting all students to learn to swim in the same way. On the other hand, Sunsational classes are personalized for each and every swimmer’s individual differences, needs, and strengths. Our teachers tailor your one-on-one lessons to your child, helping them make effective progress with gentle, encouraging instruction.

Home or Community Pool: Your Choice!

You choose the pool that matches your busy lifestyle—down the street or in your backyard. See for yourself the time and money saved when taking lessons with a Sunsational Swim teacher that comes to YOU!

Hi! My name is Josie and I have been teaching swim lessons for five years now.

Hi, my name is Kaiya. I grew up in the water, joining a local swim team at 5, remaining competitive until age 20. I began as an assistant coach in high school, was a lifeguard and WSI in college and taught for SwimAmerica. In 10 plus years I've taught infants through teens, and a few adults, teaching both safety and technique. I enjoy teaching swimming because it's a sport I've always been passionate about and believe that learning to keep yourself safe around water is an essential life skill.
