Private Swim Lessons in Los Angeles , CA

It’s always a Sunsational time to learn to swim in Southern California! When you sign up for private lessons with our Los Angeles-area swim instructors, you can rest assured that your child will make rapid progress with the essential safety skills needed in and around the water. Our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee focuses on your swimmer’s ability to turn around and get to the wall unassisted if they fall into the pool: if your child can’t demonstrate that “Sunsational Swim Sequence” by the twelfth lesson, we’ll give you up to four additional classes for free!

Our Los Angeles swim lessons are perfect for learners of all ages—infants, toddlers, older children, or even adults!—to improve their swimming ability in a matter of weeks. After several one-on-one lessons, your swimmer will show increased confidence, safety, and skills in the water, whether in your own backyard pool or at a community pool in the Los Angeles-area.

When your child is ready to race with the Los Angeles Swim Club or one of the many other local teams, we’ll match them with an instructor with current or prior coaching experience, to improve their racing form and technique and become a better competitor. We also offer private lessons for athletes wanting to train for the Los Angeles Triathlon or for a military swim test; we’ve got a Sunsational instructor to help you with all of your swimming needs!

Catching some waves at Surfrider Beach in Malibu? Or just relaxing in your own pool? From beaches to backyards, gaining the skills to enjoy the water more safely is a must for everyone living in the Golden State. Sunsational Swim School brings those essential swim skills to you!

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in Los Angeles

Water Safety Focus

We emphasize water safety skills at Sunsational Swim School. Why? Tragically, the majority of drownings in the Los Angeles area that involve young children happen in private pools. Learning how to recover from an accidental fall into the water by finding the wall, turning around, and swimming to the side of the pool is the “Sunsational Swim Sequence” in our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee: if, after twelve lessons, your child (3 and older) has not mastered those steps, we give you up to four additional classes for free!

Convenient Scheduling

You may have to squeeze into your swimsuit, but you don’t have to squeeze our lessons into your calendar! If your Tuesdays and Thursdays are just too hectic, you can schedule lessons for a lazy Saturday morning or a peaceful Friday afternoon. Your Sunsational swimming class fits your schedule, not the other way around.

Individualized Lesson Plans

Our experienced teachers make lesson plans guided by each swimmer’s needs and strengths, because every student learns to swim differently. Sunsational’s classes utilize gentle, encouraging techniques so that kids and adults can conquer fears and learn to swim more quickly.

Home or Community Pool: Your Choice!

You save time and money when you can choose the location that works best for your family. Sunsational Swim Instructors teach lessons at the Los Angeles-area pool you choose—in your neighborhood or in your backyard!

"It's a full service with great flexibility! I had my lessons with Jakub, who is incredibly encouraging and helpful. He is very positive and also very good at meeting the student at their level. I was struggling with my breathing and feeling comfortable in the water. He gave me great exercises that really focused on just my breathing and as a result, it as helped me reduce my anxiety and increase my confidence in my swimming abilities. Highly recommend Sunsational Swim School!" - Jennifer Y.

I found booking lessons with Sunsational Swim School really easy. I was assigned Tiffani as an instructor and could not have had a better experience. I am an adult who did not learn how to swim as a child. I had also had some bad experiences in the water and only grew more scared of the water as I got older. My husband tried teaching me how to swim and I also attended swim lessons for adult learners in the past. However, I was unable to learn until Tiffani came along. Tiffani pushed me out of my comfort zone but was so gentle and patient with me. After 12 lessons, I am happy to report that I can swim (even in the deep end) and am completely water safe! Tiffani changed my relationship with water and I am now happy to get in the water. In fact, my husband and I are planning a snorkeling trip in the near future which would have been impossible to consider before registering for swim lessons with Sunsational Swim School.
Fantastic Swim School. I've enjoyed my lessons with Amy so much. She is so skilled and personable and for this beginner adult swimmer has actually helped me ENJOY being in the water and getting comfortable in my ability. The sign-up process is super easy but most importantly, Amy is an incredible teacher.
We used Sunsational for swim lessons for our 4 year old daughter. We got paired with Malissa who was absolutely wonderful. She not only taught our daughter how to swim, but how to be safe in the water as well. She taught her in such a fun and creative way, that our daughter couldn't wait for her lessons and had a blast. She really helped instill a love for swimming, which is such a valuable skill. I would highly recommend Malissa as a swim teacher.
My 4 year old was scared of the water and would only feel comfortable sitting on the steps of the pool. In just a few lessons, we saw her confidence grow. She was blowing bubbles, fetching objects underwater. Though she still needs to learn strokes, we feel secure in the knowledge that she has learned pool safety and swim basics from Dominic. She trusted him to teach her different things, he was very patient with her and taught her many things in guise of play. Highly recommend!
Whitney is a wonderful instructor! After 4 lessons, my son is already so much more confident and capable in the pool... very grateful!
Stephanie is great, I see a lot of advancement with my daughter! She is very professional and patient.
Alyssa is doing great! A 10 rating, my son is learning very quickly.
We had a great experience! Our son's swim teacher was fantastic. He loves the lessons and learned so much. We are thrilled with the results and highly recommended the program.
