Private Swim Lessons in Phoenix , AZ

Is there ever a bad time for swimming in Phoenix? The Grand Canyon State definitely boasts an extraordinary number of hot, sunny days year-round, and opportunities for cooling off in the water are abundant. From Wet’n’Wild downtown to your neighbor’s pool, children need to know how to enjoy being in the water safely, and Sunsational Swim School brings those essential swimming skills to you.
Our Phoenix swim lessons teach swimmers of all ages—infant, toddler, older child, and adult— needed skills over the course of several weeks, much less time than traditionally spent in swimming classes at a community pool. In just a short time, your swimmer will be more confident in and around the water, no matter where they swim.
Our Learn-to-Swim Guarantee means that your swimmer will be more likely to know how to avoid falling into the water, and how to turn around and get to the side if they do wind up in the pool. So, when your child takes private swim lessons with one of our Sunsational Phoenix-area instructors, you can also be confident that your child will quickly gain the skills needed to be safer in your home or community pool.
When your swimmer is ready to take their skills to the next level and compete on the Phoenix Swim Club, Rio Swim Team, or another area group, we can match them with an instructor with years of coaching experience who will soon get them up to speed.
And, if you’re an adult who has lived in fear of the water for too long, don’t be shy! We’ll pair you with a Sunsational swim instructor who will gently help you to conquer those fears and finally develop a sense of security in and around the water.

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in Phoenix

Focus on Water Safety

Cherise is phenomenal! She is patient, kind and really knows how to divert the attention of my little wigglers! My five-year-old started swimming in no time and my two-year-old is on track to be swimming on her own! Great structured lessons and oh, by the way, did I mention we hit the jackpot with Cherise?!?!? These lessons are a great investment for your littles! Don't hesitate. Sign up. The entire process is easy and customer service is wonderful!
My instructor relates to my five year old in a way that makes her excited to attend the lessons. He is prepared with his materials, punctual, and engages my child. I have seen growth in her skills and confidence in only a few lessons. He is was also open to suggestions and is very knowledgable. I have enjoyed working with him and observing the dynamic between him and my daughter.
Teresa was fantastic with our young grandson who was very fearful of the water and could not swim. Teresa was on time, polite, and professional. She was thoughtful and patient. Thanks to Teresa, our grandson made amazing strides and is on his way to enjoying water sports.
It was great having someone come to our pool to teach my son how to swim. Albino was awesome! He listened to our goals and made sure that we reached them. I would definitely recommend Sunsational Swim School!
Excellent! Keri was amazing! My two grandchildren were actually swimming at the end of six lessons. Keri’s encouraging and patient attitude made this a wonderful experience for everyone. Highly recommend!
Albino was very patient and friendly. My child learned a lot from him, and really enjoyed his lessons.
Took a long time to be paired with an instructor, probably because of my son being Autistic and needing to find the right fit. We were a bit sad to start lessons so late in the summer but we absolutely love our instructor Artjom. He is very sweet with my son and is an excellent teacher. Sunsational has been good about following up on their process in getting us paired with an instructor and now in seeing how our experience is going. I'd recommend this place, just make sure you reach out well before summer to get placed in time during the highest demand time.

Ms. Terrin was so awesome with my kids! After a bit of confusion with scheduling and matching us with an instructor, they ended up matching us with Terrin and we could not have been happier! We completed 12 sessions with my 1.5 AND 3 year old. At the start of their lessons, my 3 year old was a bit intimidated with the water but by the end of their sessions, he was able to swim on his own far enough to get to a safe zone in our pool. Terrin was always on time and super patient with both kids. They both LOVED her and had so much FUN!!
Sunsational was well organized, fast and sent me two quality swim instructors who arrived on time to each lesson. The first one was also highly qualified but didn't seem to have as much experience with my son's age as he didn't want to do 3/4 lessons with her. But the second one, Melissa, was fantastic with my 2 year old. She knows how to communicate at his level to make the lesson seem like fun play. She is energetic, sweet, knows how to communicate at his level to make the lesson seem like fun play. She is energetic, sweet, lively and has the overall good vibe you want someone to have around your kids. My son was excitedly anticipating his next lesson with her and all her fun props.
Sunsational swim school has been amazing for us. We have used them for several years to teach my kids to swim. They come to your house and accommodate your schedule! This year our youngest needed to learn to swim. She enjoyed pool time but was content in her floaty and didn't care to learn to swim, then we were paired with Mary! Mary has been an AMAZING teacher for our daughter. She was swimming within a couple of weeks and even more excited to be in the pool now. We appreciated Mary for getting to know our daughter and really focusing her approach based on her temperament/skill/comfort level. Mary has been absolutely perfect for our family and I would highly recommend her!
