Swim lessons are a great way to prepare your child to feel comfortable and safe in water, plus practice their skills. Our teachers will help your child improve overall as a swimmer. Parents do not directly participate in these courses.
Work one-on-one with an instructor to improve any/all personal swimming skills. Minimum class size of three.
Lessons are by appointment and taught in Gabel Hall Pool. After registering, the Aquatics Manager will contact you to schedule class time. Register online or at the Student Recreation Center membership desk. For more information regarding the class, please call the Graduate Assistant of Aquatics at 815-753-9360.
Children of Campus Recreation members may use the pool, however each individual (adult & child) needs a pool pass to use of Gabel pool during open/lap swim times.
Each child (17 and under), must be accompanied by a fee paying adult at all times. Each child needs to possess a current pool pass to enter the pool. Children are encouraged to visit during Open Swim times. Lap Swim is held exclusively for lap swimmers.
