What is ISR?

ISR strives to enrich the lives of children by teaching them to swim and Self-Rescue, thereby furthering their mission to see that Not One More Child Drowns.  Nationally, drowning ranks as the second leading cause of death for children under the age of four.  For each child who drowns, another four survive as victims of a near drowning and the associated complications.

What your child will learn:

Infants (6 months- 12 months old) will learn:
  • to hold their breath underwater
  • to roll onto their back
  • to float unassisted, rest, and breathe
  • to perform these skills fully clothed

Children (1 year- 6 years old) will learn:
  • to hold their breath underwater
  • to swim with their head down and eyes open
  • to roll onto their back, to float unassisted
  • to roll back over and resume swimming
  • to repeat the swim-float-swim sequence to reach safety
  • to perform these skills fully clothed

The ISR Lesson Experience:

  • These safe and effective lessons are customized to your child and taught one-on-one.  We do not offer group lessons.  Your child’s lesson experience will be unique, and to provide the safest possible lesson, the instructor’s attention will be focused only on your child throughout the lesson period.
  • Lessons shall last no more than 10 minutes a day, 5 days a week, Monday through Friday.  In order to to master these Self-Rescue skills, the enrollment period will last between 4 and 6 weeks. 
  • Your Certified ISR Instructor will provide instruction to your child that emphasizes developmentally appropriate skill training, health issues and considerations, ongoing program evaluations, and parental education.
  • Because most drowning and near-drowning incidents occur when a child is fully clothed, every student, once fully skilled, practices is summer and winter clothing.
  • After the initial lesson sequence has been complete, ISR recommends that every child participates in 1 to 2 weeks of refresher lessons every 6 months to a year.  These lessons will help your child adjust their swimming and floating skills to their continually growing and developing bodies.
