Sunsational Swim School provides private swim lessons in the comfort of your own pool. You are paired with a certified instructor and lifeguard that will come to your home. They are flexible and are able to work with your schedule.
We were connected with a swim instructor named Carol. She contacted me to set up a time that was convient for us. While setting up our lesson times we also discussed each of my boys and their needs. Carol arrived on our first scheduled lesson on time and ready to start. She sat down with the boys briefly and went over the swim chart. She showed them all the levels and what they will learn at each level as the move up.
Although my boys are different ages their skill level was not to far different so Carol started with them doing the same activities. She went back and forth with the boys as they took turns doing the activities. She used lots of games to have the boys work on things like pretend to be superman, reach for the toys underwater, and yell wake up under water. The boys enjoyed the first session. They were a little hesitant to push beyond their comfort level, but Carol was very patient with them. For the second lesson Carol decided to split the boys up and do a session with each. Jayden did the first session. He became much more confident with going under water and holding his breath for 6-8 seconds. He continued to have a hard time with swimming out to her. He has a fear of just letting go and trying it, even in the shallow water that he can reach the bottom on. With Evan he was a little more open to trying to swim and superman out to her. He had a hard time with going fully underwater. Both the boys did well with Carol and made some progress during the two lessons. Carol emailed me the next day after the second lesson with some tips and ideas on how to continue to work with each of the boys.
