What We Offer

Our goal is to be sure that if someone ever falls into the water, they have the calm sense of what to do.

At Swim With Gale, we empower our students, and their families with the confidence that they can!  ​

​The first step is to improve confidence!  Students learn to lean out into the pool, swim towards the center then turn around to get back to either the wall, the steps, or roll over onto their backs to rest.

When working with the students, Gale goes at “their pace" with a slight push to move forward as she continues to build their confidence.  Once students have mastered this we progress into improving their swim strokes (freestyle and backstroke).  Then we begin instruction on the remaining swimming strokes (elementary backstroke, side stroke, breast stroke, butterfly, flip turns, basic diving) and eventually get to the point of learning life saving skills.  This gives the students the knowledge of what to do if an accident happens and how to assist someone in need.  Each student is unique and our progressive “gentle” approach is focused on each individual’s needs, fears and abilities.  As one develops confidence in the water they will learn water safety.​​

  • Gale stresses the safety aspects of being in and around the water, teaching you how to swim in a loving caring and gentle environment.
  • She is very patient and believes that swimming is a life long skill, instruction is not enough ~ learning to survive is everything!  You must be able to survive under any water conditions.
  • Each session generally consists of 9 private lessons on MW or TTH.  Classes are 20 or 30 minutes long in our heated, 90° salt-water pool in Oak Park.
Gale can help you overcome whatever prevents you from enjoying the water.  She will teach you to feel empowered and confident while in the pool. She will help you see swimming as relaxing and easy.
