Private Swim Lessons in Tampa , FL

If you look around the greater Tampa area, what do you see? Water! From Adventure Island near Busch Gardens to the top-rated Clearwater Beach just across the bay, the opportunities to make a splash and have fun are virtually endless. Here in the Sunshine State, learning to be safe in and around water is one of the most critical skills you can give a child.

At Sunsational Swim School, we offer private swim lessons throughout the Tampa area that will help learners of any age—from infant to adult!—master the skills needed to be safe in the water, whether in their own backyard or at the neighborhood swimming pool.

When you’re matched with a Sunsational swim teacher in Tampa, you’ll quickly see the difference between crowded, impersonal group swimming classes at the local pool and our personalized, highly effective private swimming lessons. Your swimmer will make progress in a matter of weeks, not months or years, and our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee package means that you can trust that your child will demonstrate significant progress in our program—or we’ll provide up to four free lessons to help them perform our “Sunsational Safety Sequence.”

Already know how to swim but not sure how to take your strokes to the next level? If you or your child are hoping to swim competitively for the Greater Tampa Swim Association (GTSA) or one of the many other excellent teams in the area, we have private lessons available with current and former swim coaches who can improve your stroke mechanics and get you racing.

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in Tampa

Our Priority Is Water Safety

Because most drownings happen when a child is unable to exit the water safely after a fall into the pool, our Tampa swim lessons focus on teaching kids to find the side of the pool, turn around, and swim to the wall.

Scheduling at Your Convenience

Want to schedule a toddler lesson before naptime? Absolutely! How about an afternoon class for an adult that’s been afraid of the water for years? Yes! Whatever timeframe fits your schedule is a perfect time for a Sunsational Swim lesson.

Lesson Plans Unique to You

No two swimmers are the same, so our teachers use a gentle, progressive approach to help every swimmer overcome any fears of the water and quickly learn the skills needed to be safe. We’re so confident in our approach that we offer our exclusive Learn-to-Swim Guarantee package for ages 3 and up (infant and toddler lessons excluded).

You Choose the Pool

You’ve got a busy life! Who needs to drive across Tampa to crowded swimming lessons when a Sunsational Swim instructor can bring a private swim class to your home or favorite community pool?

Dawn F is a great instructor. I highly recommend her. She is great with kids. My children had a great time learning to swim with her.
Dawn was a wonderful swim instructor. My son improved more than I expected him to and Dawn was truly enjoyable for us both. In fact, I think my son misses her!
Thank you to Cheralynn for making my daughter's first swimming lessons a positive experience!
