EXPERIENCE RESULTS WITH HUNSAKER SWIMMING
PRIVATE LESSONS SUMMARY
Our lessons vary depending on the experience of your child. After a quick assessment, the instructor will be able to tailor each minute of the lessons to the exact needs of your child in order to help them be safe, have fun, and progress quickly. The first thing we like our students to perfect is survival, making sure they will be safe whenever they are near or in water. From there we like to focus on improving their basic swimming skills such as practicing the common strokes and learning how to properly breathe while doing so. Lastly, for the more advanced students, we tend to focus on things like diving, merit badges, flip turns, and all of the remaining, more complicated swim strokes.
Each $75 purchase includes five 20 minute private, one on one lessons, Monday-Friday. Because we have 4 instructors at all times, we are able to teach up to 4 children at once. Your lessons will be at the same time each day during the purchased week. Rather than sign up 1 child at multiple times in the same week (10 lessons as opposed to the regular 5 that come with one purchase), we ask instead that you spread out their lessons and register for consecutive or multiple weeks of lessons. We teach ages 3-16.
"I LOVED Hunsaker Swimming! In the first 30 seconds of getting in the water on the first day, she was being taught how to stay afloat. I love that they immediately teach children how to float on their backs safely. They are given the one-on-one attention they need to really help them be comfortable in the water. I will not take my kids anywhere else."
"My kids and myself have loved Hunsaker swimming lessons! We had a bad experience elsewhere in the past, so I was skeptical but this was the best experience! The instructors were so patient and my kids learned so much during their sessions! We will be back again and again!! Highly recommend!"
"The Hunsakers know their stuff and are the most calm and patient instructors. After seeing the progress that can be made through private lessons, I will never do group swimming lessons again! I am grateful that the basic life-saving techniques are so heavily emphasized throughout the lessons. I feel much more confident taking my 3 kids to the pool knowing that they have basic skills."
"I have taken my kids to Hunsaker’s for the past three summers and am so impressed each year. The amount my children are able to progress in one short week is amazing. Last summer my 4 year old went from being scared to put her face in the water to jumping off the diving board solo and back floating over to the side in one week! And the best part is they are great with kids so my kids actually enjoy going to lessons. Thank you!"
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What ages do we teach?
We teach ages 3-16, all experience levels
How many weeks should I sign my child up for?
We typically recommend a minimum of 2 weeks, especially for younger children or beginners. It's preferable for them to be consecutive, but not necessary for successful results.
What is our lesson makeup policy?
We teach in the rain and only cancel lessons due to lightning/severe weather. If lessons are canceled, we will hold makeups at your regularly scheduled lesson time on the Saturday of your lesson week. We are unable to provide makeups for illness or schedule conflicts. You are welcome to let a sibling or neighbor take your child's time if they are unable to attend their lesson.
Can my child wear goggles?
Goggles are fine as long as they are not nose covering goggles. If they are too distracting for your child, their instructor may suggest to take them off at certain times.

How do we handle crying children?
We have had amazing success with children who have struggled to overcome their fear of water. Each of our instructors are extrememly patient and do mind a screaming and fussing child. We teach through our tears and do our best to help our students realize the importance of working through hard things.
What if my child has learning disabilities?
Then you have come to the right place! We have had some tremendous success with children that have autism, down syndrome, as well as other limitations. Our experience combined with patience and a one on one approach is particularly helpful for children with special needs. If you are signing up a student with special needs, please contact us directly through the registration page so that we can work with you on a specific time and place that works for you to bring your child.
