Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in Sherman Oaks

Our Priority Is Water Safety

The majority of child drownings happen when they are unable to safely exit the water after a fall into the water. For this reason, our Sherman Oaks swim lessons emphasize teaching kids to find the side of the pool, turn around, and swim to the side.

Scheduling at Your Convenience

Want to plan your infant?s lessons before lunchtime? Definitely! What about an evening session for a reluctant adult that?s always wanted to learn to swim? We can do that! The time of day that best fits your busy life is a great time for a Sunsational Swim lesson.

Lesson Plans Unique to You

Our teachers use gentle encouragement and a progressive approach to plan lessons to meet each swimmer?s unique needs and rapidly learn the skills needed to be safer in and around the water. We?ve seen such consistent results with our program that we offer a Learn-to-Swim Guarantee package for ages 3 and up (infant and toddler lessons excluded).

You Choose the Pool

Your life often feels like it?s on fast-forward, right? Who wants to drive across Sherman Oaks in order to get to overfilled swimming lessons when a Sunsational Swim teacher can bring a private swim class to your home or favorite local pool?

Rated 4.9/5 Stars From Over 900+ Reviews
Thankfully they sent me Caitlin and I have to tell you she is a Godsend! Patient soothing kind and an amazing teacher. I have always been afraid of water and she has taken me out of that mindset with compassion and today I actually swam across the pool all the way to the 7 foot end and back! I could not even imagine this had it not been for Caitlin! She is the absolute best! That is why I am giving HER a fiver star review!!!

Caitlyn was everything we'd hope for in a swim instructor. Most important of all my son went from being a brick in the water to knowing how to swim in less than two weeks. My daughter who had been to swimming camp a year earlier, developed bad habits which Caitlyn corrected. Both my children loved their time with her and she was a pleasure to interact with. Recommend 100%.

AMAZING Experience!

My two children took swim lessons at a YMCA for a season. Despite taking them to swim lessons every Saturday and practicing with them regularly, they never even came close to swimming! Both my children were scared to death to go near the water without their floaties! After taking a SINGLE lesson with Deven from Sunsational Swim School, my six year old was swimming on his own. ONE HALF HOUR LESSON! The instruction was SO different from what we had at the YMCA! Deven is an amazing instructor. After just six lessons, my six year old is confidently jumping into the deep end of the pool and can swim across the width of the pool with no hesitation. After six lessons, my freshly four year old is beginning to swim and will confidently dive down under water. Deven was so patient and the kids. I was blown away by the clear instructions and patient, direct instructions. I am in shock! After just six lessons, I have two little swimmers!!!

There are not enough words to describe Heather Goldman. She's amazing! My husband and I are very pleased and wanted to share her love for swimming and knowledge to others who are looking for top-notch swim lessons.

Heather was able to teach our son at 5 yrs old and daughter at 3 years old to swim. Our son feared the water and our daughter was never in the pool without a floatie. Within one week they were both swimming and love to show everyone what they have learned. From our son swimming across the pool in deep water, jumping, getting rings to diving and our daughter mastering the backfloat and becoming a strong little swimmer. Heather treats our pool as their oasis. She connects their whole being into the water. Heather has built a confidence in them they never knew prior to meeting her. Both of our kids trust her and have come to love her as family. My husband and I have learned so much being in the lessons with each of them too. We highly recommend Heather Goldman to be your child's swimming instructor. She is truly the best of the best!
