Private Swim Lessons in San Fernando Valley , CA

What do you see on a map of southern California? Water! From Calabasas to Burbank, there are so many ways to get wet and have fun in the In the San Fernando Valley area. In the Golden State, one of the best gifts you can give a child is knowing how to be safe in and around the water.

Throughout the San Fernando Valley area, we offer private swim lessons for students of all ages—infant to adult—that help them gain confidence and the water safety skills they need to swim in their home swimming pools or maybe even at Six Flags Hurricane Harbor!

As you take classes with a Sunsational swim teacher in the San Fernando Valley, you can’t help but notice the difference between the crowded, one-style-fits all classes offered by your local pool and our one-on-one, customized private swimming lessons. If you’d like to see your swimmer improve in weeks, instead of months or years, you’ll appreciate Sunsational’s Learn-to-Swim Guarantee package: if, after the initial lesson package of twelve classes, your child (age 3 or older) is unable to swim unassisted to the side of the pool (from a simulated fall), we give you up to four complimentary lessons until they can.

Also, if you or your child are interested in swimming on a competitive team like Rattler Swim Club or one of the many other groups serving the San Fernando Valley, Sunsational Swim offers private lessons with current and former swim coaches to work on your stroke mechanics and help you butterfly, backstroke, freestyle, and breaststroke your way to your racing goals.

Benefits of Private Swimming Lessons in San Fernando Valley

Sunsational’s Priority Is Water Safety

Our San Fernando Valley swim lessons focus on getting kids to locate the wall, turn around, and swim to the side of the pool—because too many drownings take place when a child can’t exit the pool safely after accidentally falling in.

Scheduling at Your Convenience

Who ever thought that swim classes at naptime were a good idea? With Sunsational, any time that works for you is a perfect time for lessons! We even offer after-work sessions for the adult in your family that is ready to learn how to swim.

Lesson Plans Unique to You

Our swim instructors help each swimmer overcome fears and learn all of the water skills needed to be safer. Because no two learners are the same, we don’t take a one-size-fits-all approach to instruction; each lesson is designed to meet the specific needs of the swimmer, using a gentle, progressive approach. We’re so sure that our students will make quick, measurable progress that we provide a Learn-to-Swim Guarantee package for students 3 and older (infant and toddler lessons excluded).

You Choose the Pool

Work, sports, school, and activities...oh my! Would you rather spend your free time in traffic, driving from one San Fernando Valley suburb to another for yet another class, or in the comfort of your favorite pool (in your community or your backyard!) with a Sunsational Swim teacher who brings private swimming lessons right to you?

Sunsational Clients Love Our Swimming Lessons

Rated 4.9/5 Stars From Over 900+ Reviews
There are not enough words to describe Heather Goldman. She's amazing! My husband and I are very pleased and wanted to share her love for swimming and knowledge to others who are looking for top-notch swim lessons.

Heather was able to teach our son at 5 yrs old and daughter at 3 years old to swim. Our son feared the water and our daughter was never in the pool without a floatie. Within one week they were both swimming and love to show everyone what they have learned. From our son swimming across the pool in deep water, jumping, getting rings to diving and our daughter mastering the backfloat and becoming a strong little swimmer. Heather treats our pool as their oasis. She connects their whole being into the water. Heather has built a confidence in them they never knew prior to meeting her. Both of our kids trust her and have come to love her as family. My husband and I have learned so much being in the lessons with each of them too. We highly recommend Heather Goldman to be your child's swimming instructor. She is truly the best of the best!
AMAZING Experience!

My two children took swim lessons at a YMCA for a season. Despite taking them to swim lessons every Saturday and practicing with them regularly, they never even came close to swimming! Both my children were scared to death to go near the water without their floaties! After taking a SINGLE lesson with Deven from Sunsational Swim School, my six year old was swimming on his own. ONE HALF HOUR LESSON! The instruction was SO different from what we had at the YMCA! Deven is an amazing instructor. After just six lessons, my six year old is confidently jumping into the deep end of the pool and can swim across the width of the pool with no hesitation. After six lessons, my freshly four year old is beginning to swim and will confidently dive down under water. Deven was so patient and the kids. I was blown away by the clear instructions and patient, direct instructions. I am in shock! After just six lessons, I have two little swimmers!!!
We could not be happier with our instructor Jacques. Our 4 year old wanted nothing to do with swimming last summer and his first lesson with Jacques was like watching a completely different boy. Our son was comfortable with Jacques right away and is always so excited for his next lesson. Only after a couple of lessons our son has made so much progress and we truly owe it to our instructor. He is always on time, so professional and so so friendly. He is absolutely fabulous, thank you, Jacques!!
Jacques with Sunsational did a great job teaching our four year old twins to swim better. We had tried teaching them on our own but weren't making much progress. He was very patient with our more afraid child and she made progress and our more brave child made even more progress. He worked with us on times and rescheduled when our kids were too sick. He was always on time. He did a great job.
We signed up for swim lessons through the school. They assigned Jacques to teach my 1-year-old. We're doing private lessons at the house and I'm happy with how everything is going. My son is learning and having fun! I am a self-thought swimmer but wanted my child to learn pool safety the best way possible. Thank you, Jacques, we appreciate having you as our swim instructor!
Our swim instructor Jacques was amazing! We signed up for 12 30 minute sessions for our 4 year old. By lesson 2 we already saw tremendous improvement, and by the end our 4 year olds confidence and ability far exceeded my expectations. Jacques was patient warm and professional throughout the entire experience. I would highly recommend him to any one in need of swim lessons.
Everything we were hoping for and more!

Caitlyn L. was everything we'd hope for in a swim instructor. Most important of all my son went from being a brick in the water to knowing how to swim in less than two weeks. My daughter who had been to swimming camp a year earlier, developed bad habits which Caitlyn L. corrected. Both my children loved their time with her and she was a pleasure to interact with. Recommend 100%
Moriah has been great with my 4 y/o son. He is now floating on his back and diving down to pick-up a toy in the shallow end and he's only had 3 lessons so far. We are looking forward to his next 3 lessons and what he will learn. Moriah is also very courteous, considerate and responsible. Thank you, Moriah!
Amazing teacher! So knowledgeable, friendly and fun. I am extremely pleased with the progress thus far. Would recommend to anyone and everyone looking for excellent swim instructions for their children.
My kid's swimming teacher, Jacques, was very professional. Yet, my kid had lots of fun with him. My son was waiting for swimming lesson time. In 4th lesson, my son started to swim from one end of pool to other side. I'd highly recommend him. He makes kids very comfortable.
Thank you, Jacques!
