Private Swim Lessons in Austin , TX

It’s always a great time for swim lessons in Austin! Whether you’re out kayaking on Lake Travis, heading to Hawaiian Falls in Pflugerville, or relaxing in your own pool, water is virtually everywhere. Learning to be safe in and around water is a critical skill for all residents of the Lone Star State, and with Sunsational Swim School, those skills are brought right to you.

Our private swimming lessons teach people of all ages—infant, toddler, older child, or adult—vital skills in weeks, not months or years like it often takes with community or group swim lessons in Austin. In no time, your swimmer will be confident in the water wherever you go, from your backyard pool to the Gulf Coast beaches on your next family vacation.

When you sign up for private swim lessons with one of our Austin-area teachers, you can trust that your child will rapidly learn the techniques needed to be safer in your community pool or at home. Our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee package means that that your swimmer will be better able to avoid falling into the water, and to turn around and get to the side if they do wind up in the pool. If, after your lessons are completed, your child is not able to demonstrate the ability to swim to the side of the pool with no assistance, Sunsational offers up to four additional lessons for no extra charge.

We also have lessons for adults who may have spent a lifetime being afraid of the water and might just need a little one-on-one help to conquer those fears for good.

And, if you or your swimmer are ready to move on to the next level by participating on a team like Austin Swim Club or Nitro, we will gladly assign them an instructor with coaching experience who can get them racing off the blocks and powering down the lanes with excellent technique. Our instructors can also help adults who are training for a competition like the Ironman or even working hard to qualify for a military swim test: give us a call and we’ll get you started!

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in Austin

Focus on Water Safety

In Austin, most drownings of young children happen in their home swimming pools, so we prioritize teaching water safety skills in our private swimming lessons. Being able to safely recover from a fall into the pool by knowing where to find the nearest wall, how to turn around and swim back to the side is at the core of our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee.

Convenient Scheduling

Need an early-evening class or want to schedule three of your kids in back-to-back lessons on the same day?Absolutely! Our Austin-area instructors schedule swim lessons according to your timeframe.

Customized Lesson Plans

Every swimmer is different, so our highly-trained teachers make lesson plans to suit your child’s needs, using gentle, proven techniques to help make rapid progress in their swim skills while reducing any fear of the water they may have.

Cole has been nothing short of amazing over the last 2 months. He is by far the best children's swim instructor we've seen - he keeps a fastpace, which keeps the kids interested and attentive. He's supportive, encouraging and has made outstanding progress with both of our kids. He took our 5 year old from being afraid to put her head under water in the first lesson to swimming free-style w/ side breath the length of the pool. And, he took our 2 year old from being deathly afraid of the pool to safely getting in and out the side of the pool on his own, 'monkey' scaling the side of the pool & blowing bubbles. We are most grateful for having had the opportunity to work with such a knowledgeable and kind instructor!

Ashley was absolutely amazing! My 5 year old was ready to go from day one with her - very good with kids!!! Not only was she comfortable with her so was i. I never once doubted Madison in the water with her and now... she can swim!!! She has learned to get herself to a floating position to catch her breath and get herself to the side just in case she were to fall in alone.... so comforting for this mommy!! I would HIGHLY recommend ashley for your little one. I can currently pregnant and have already decided this kiddo will be with ashley in the water at 6 months!!
Our Swim Instructor Ashley is the best, she has always been on time and the professional.
The flexibility of the program is the best. We have a varied and unpredictable schedule, so we can't take normal swim lessons that require a fixed commitment to certain times and dates. Shelley was easy to work with.

David B. is a wonderful instructor and has truly transformed my 6 year old son who was terrified of the water and refused to even put his head in. We had tried various swim schools and private lessons in the past with no luck. My husband and I are in shock as now he is a completely different child, doing cannon balls, begging to swim every day, and making it across the pool. My older son (who already knew the basics), has learned the proper technique and has gained a lot of speed and stamina. Admittedly I was skeptical of the other testimonials but they are absolutely true! David is a miracle worker and we are so grateful not only for the critical safety skills my son is learning but even just loving the water. It is clear he is VERY experienced not just as a former competitive swimmer and coach but as a parent who gets my boys. He was the perfect fit for our family- thank you Coach David and Sunsational for the ideal match! We couldn't be more pleased. Highly recommend.
Because of our positive experience with Marie W. in 2016, we resumed private swim lessons with Sunsational Swim School when the weather warmed up in spring/summer 2017. Fortunately, Marie was available to instruct our son again, and we continued with her (I think it was 12 sessions or so) until the end of the summer. As before, she was excellent! All of the positive things we wrote before (e.g., great energy, very friendly, adaptive) continued to be true, even during those times when our son was not very cooperative. We continue to highly recommend Marie as a swim instructor and hope to work with her again!
Sunsational Swim school was amazing!! My son's coach was Marie W. and I seriously can't say enough great things about her! She was AMAZING! My son is 2 & 1/2 and he's a tough customer. Marie was patient, kind, fun, & gave 100% every lesson! She played fun games and came up with on the spot ideas to help get my son engaged and interested. Right away he trusted her and bonded. He couldn't wait to go to swim lessons every day to see Ms. Marie! Highly recommend Marie!!! Thanks for everything Sunsational Swim and Marie!! Thanks to you, my son is swimming like a fish!
SO happy I took a chance and booked Sunsational Swim School and that they connected us with our teacher, Mrs. Frances. My 5.5 yo boy is sweet, sensitive, and very cautious. Mrs. Frances has made such a strong effort to teach him swimming with this in mind. This makes swimming lessons incredibly enjoyable for everyone. My son is excited to see her each time. Mrs. Frances is always on time and is great at communicating. We appreciate her so much.
Alicia was wonderful with my 5-year old son- very patient, supportive, and took extra steps to make the swim lesson fun and create games out of learning. She also included water safety instruction in every lesson. I appreciate the flexibility of this model and Alicia was extra flexible in working around our schedule. I definitely recommend her!
