Private Swim Lessons in South Florida , FL

Look at a map of the greater South Florida area, and what do you see? Water! From Cooper City to Palmetto Bay, there’s virtually no end to the possibilities for making a splash and having fun. Learning water safety is one of the most important skills you can give a child, especially in the Sunshine State.

Working with a Sunsational swim teacher in South Florida, you’ll be amazed at the difference between the local pool’s crowded, impersonal classes and our effective, individualized private swimming lessons. Ready to see progress in weeks, not months or years? Our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee package means that your swimmer will quickly show measurable improvement in our program. If, after the lesson package, your child (ages 3 and up) is unable to swim unassisted to the side of the pool (from a simulated fall), we offer up to four additional lessons for free until they can.

We offer private swim lessons throughout the South Florida area for learners of any age—infant to adult!—helping them master water safety skills, gaining confidence to swim in their own pool or maybe even at Rapids Water Park!

Additionally, if you or your child are thinking of swimming competitively with the Swim Fort Lauderdale team or any of the other accomplished aquatic clubs in South Florida, Sunsational Swim’s private lessons with current and former swim coaches will improve your stroke mechanics and help you butterfly, freestyle, backstroke, and breaststroke your way to victory.

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in South Florida

Sunsational’s Priority Is Water Safety

Our South Florida swim lessons focus on teaching kids to find the side of the pool, turn around, and swim to the wall—because many drownings occur when a child does not know how exit the pool safely after falling into the water.

Scheduling at Your Convenience

We all know that swim classes at naptime are not a good idea. With Sunsational, any time that fits your schedule is a great time for a lesson. Would you like an after-work session for an adult that has decided to conquer their fears and get in the water? We do that too!

Lesson Plans Unique to You

Our swim instructors use an individualized, gentle approach to help each swimmer overcome fears and learn all of the water skills needed to be safe. We’re so sure that swimmers will make quick progress that we offer an exclusive Learn-to-Swim Guarantee package for students 3 and older (infant and toddler lessons excluded).

You Choose the Pool

With work, school, sports, and more, your family is busy! Why make a drive from one South Florida suburb to another for crowded swimming lessons when a Sunsational Swim teacher can bring a private class right to you?

We recently put our two kids in private lessons with Sunsational and we could not be any happier with the program. Our instructor Madison was exceptional!!! Her level of patience and professionalism helped our younger child get over her fear of swimming so much that she is no longer dependent of her floaties. We highly recommend her and this company to any family looking to teach their little ones to swim.

I'm so impressed already with my 1.5 year old son. After 4 lessons he holds on to the wall by himself and says "kick, kick, kick" and kicks his little legs throughout day when he's laying around playing. Marie has been wonderful with him and very patient. He has screamed a few times and cried but even so he listens to her and kicks to the wall! I couldn't ask for someone to be more patient but also able to teach him at the same time!

Marianela is more than we could ever have asked for; she has been beyond to help my son and I both feel comfortable and enjoy the lessons. She always spends extra time when she is available, she is very in tune with the toddler mood for the day and adjusts lessons accordingly, and above all, she has taught my son so much! In just a matter of weeks, she feels like another member of our family and my son asks everyday if we can go swim with Mrs. Marianela!!

Marianela Freites is the perfect instructor for Sunsational Swim school. She is absolutely, SENSATIONAL!!!!! Both of my kids have advanced tremendously in the water, and have a bond and connection with marianela unlike with any other instructor. She knows how to soften up the kids and make them feel comfortable with her and in the water. She's genuinely concerned for the child's growth and truly enjoys her job.

Both my kids look forward to their swim sessions even when they don't have class :) we appreciate Marianela and Sunsational very much! Thank you, Thank you!!!! - Marianela

"We highly recommend Marianela Freites. We wanted to give our nephews (ages 3 and 8) swim lessons. We contacted Sunsational Swim School to find a teacher. We were matched with Marianela Freites. She came to our home and In a very short time she made an amazing impact on their swimming skills. Immediately she showed love and care for children, they are her first priority. In their first lesson they made more progress than we thought they would after all the lessons. She was very professional, she worked calmly and sweetly."- Sue D.

I located a Sundational Swim School Private Swim Lessons online. Everyone I spoke with was very professional and responsive. They are very organized. They were able to match us with an awesome swim instructor in Miami. The instructor was also very professional, prompt and did an excellent job in teaching a very young child new beginner swimming skills. She worked with our schedule and did an excellent job. I would definitely recommend both the company and the swim instructor, Matison.
