Private Swim Lessons in Sylmar , CA

Driving kids all over Sylmar 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 Sylmar! 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 Sylmar 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 Sylmar. 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 Sylmar swim lessons today and see the Sunsational difference for yourself?

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in Sylmar

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 Sylmar 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 Sylmar 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.

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%.

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!

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!!!

We could not be happier with our instructor Jacques. Our 4 year old wanted nothing to do with swimming last summer and his first lesson with Jacques was like watching a completely different boy. Our son was comfortable with Jacques right away and is always so excited for his next lesson. Only after a couple of lessons our son has made so much progress and we truly owe it to our instructor. He is always on time, so professional and so so friendly. He is absolutely fabulous, thank you, Jacques!!

Jacques with Sunsational did a great job teaching our four year old twins to swim better. We had tried teaching them on our own but weren't making much progress. He was very patient with our more afraid child and she made progress and our more brave child made even more progress. He worked with us on times and rescheduled when our kids were too sick. He was always on time. He did a great job.

We signed up for swim lessons through the school. They assigned Jacques to teach my 1-year-old. We're doing private lessons at the house and I'm happy with how everything is going. My son is learning and having fun! I am a self-thought swimmer but wanted my child to learn pool safety the best way possible. Thank you, Jacques, we appreciate having you as our swim instructor!
Deborah K on yelp
Our swim instructor Jacques was amazing! We signed up for 12 30 minute sessions for our 4 year old. By lesson 2 we already saw tremendous improvement, and by the end our 4 year olds confidence and ability far exceeded my expectations. Jacques was patient warm and professional throughout the entire experience. I would highly recommend him to any one in need of swim lessons.

Melissa has been such a pleasure to have as a teacher for my son. She is an excellent swimmer and soon he will be too! She is always smiling and has a great attitude.

Highly recommend getting this for every kid. My son was terrified of putting his face under the water but now does it easily and can swim around. Our instructor Caitlyn is the BEST! She is so calm and patient. Wonderful attitude and great at working with kids!
