SWIM WITH GALE

“The water is a unique modality; we teach every student to respect and appreciate its power, while helping our students to find their own strength in it,” Founder Gale Saul.

The Sky's The Limit

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.

continues to build swimming confidence

Gale goes at “their pace" with a slight push to move forward

Once students have mastered this we progress into improving their:

  1. Swim strokes (freestyle and backstroke).

  2. Then we begin instruction on the remaining swimming strokes (elementary backstroke, sidestroke, breaststroke, butterfly, flip turns, basic diving) and eventually get to the point of learning lifesaving skills.  This gives the students the knowledge of what to do if an accident happens and how to assist someone in need.

  3. 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.
