Private Swim Lessons in Tucson , AZ

It’s a perfect time to learn to swim! When you take private lessons with one of our Tucson-area Sunsational Swim instructors, you can be confident that your child will make progress with the very skills needed to be safe in and around the water. Our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee helps your swimmer know how to avoid falling into the pool, and how to turn around and get to the side if they do fall in. If your child hasn’t mastered our “Sunsational Swim Sequence” in twelve lessons, we’ll give you up to four extra classes at no charge.

Our Tucson swim lessons are ideal for students of all ages—infants, toddlers, older children, or even adults!—who want to make progress in a matter of weeks, not months or years like it can take in crowded classes at the public pool. In just a few one-on-one lessons, your swimmer will approach the water with greater confidence, whether in your own pool or at a Tucson community pool .

Is your child is ready to compete with the Tucson J Stingrays or one of the many other local swim teams? Great! We’ll pair them with an instructor with years of coaching expertise, who can fine-tune their racing strokes and help them be a strong competitor. We also have private lessons for athletes training for the Tucson Triathlon or working towards a qualifying time on a military swim test; whatever your swimming needs, we’ve got a Sunsational instructor to help you get there!

Whether you’re headed out to catch some waves at Breakers Water Park in Marana, planning for a long weekend at the beach in San Diego, or relaxing in your backyard pool, learning how to safely enjoy the water is a must for all residents of the Grand Canyon State. With Sunsational Swim School, we bring those critical swimming skills to you.

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in Tucson

Water Safety Focus

At Sunsational Swim School, we emphasize water safety skills. Why? Because most drownings involving young children in the Tucson area happen at home in a backyard pool. Learning how to find the side of the pool, turn around, and swim to the side of the pool is the “Sunsational Swim Sequence” backed by our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee: if your child (ages 3 and older) has not mastered those skills after twelve lessons, we provide up to four additional classes at no extra charge!

Convenient Scheduling

Plan your lessons according to your calendar. Whether you need an early afternoon swimming class or want to have your kids in back-to-back lessons, we have a Sunsational Swim instructor who will be there!

Individualized Lesson Plans

Our highly-qualified instructors make lesson plans tailored to each student’s needs, because every swimmer approaches the water differently. Our Sunsational classes utilize gentle, encouraging methods; students are able to conquer any fears and make significant progress in their ability to swim.

Home or Community Pool: Your Choice!

Sunsational Swim Instructors meet you at the pool you choose—favorite Tucson-area pool or your own! You’ll save money and time by choosing the location that fits your active life.

We are only three lessons in toddler swim lessons. Our main goal is to get her comfortable in the pool and water, Christa is the most kind, patient instructor we could imagine. My toddler was in tears the majority first lesson, but Christa was patient and so great with her. Having our daughter learn in an environment she is comfortable with has been wonderful, I would highly recommend Christa and Sunsational to anyone.

Our swim instructor, Alison, from Sunsational Swim has been fantastic. We're so grateful we were paired with her. She was great with our children, who were quickly at ease with her in the water. They've become comfortable in the water and confident in their swimming abilities. We've already recommended our instructor with Sunsational Swim School to friends!

Elizabeth was a pleasure to work with. She was always on time and was super inspirational for the kids. She is very knowledgable and knew exactly how to teach the kids. They really liked working with her and were happy to see her every class. Most importantly my kids have learned how to swim and be safe in the water. I feel confidant that they will be safe which is especially important in AZ! The Sunsationial company is also easy to schedule and contact. They treat you with respect and are happy to help you and set you up with a local instructor that can accomodate your schedule.

This has been a great experience from the beginning. Jessica is amazing, and my one year old is now well on her way to being able to swim for herself. We are very happy with the progress. Jessica has a boat load of patience, is always on time, and very professional.

Lindsay has been wonderful with our boys! She is patient and knows how to motivate them. On Day 1, our boys were afraid to get into the water, and after only two lessons, she got them to jump in and let her catch them. They still have a lot to learn, but she has made so much progress with them. She has turned their fear into excitement, and they look forward to their lessons!
