Sometimes, everything we do is not enough to keep a child from drowning. Even with alarms, door locks, pool fences, and supervision, children can escape from protective care and find themselves in trouble, whether it is in a pool, pond, lake, or canal. This is where Infant Swimming Resource, the ONLY provider of the safest and most effective aquatic survival skills training, steps in and gives children the skills to survive.
At ISR, the most comprehensive self-rescue swimming program in the U.S., we integrate skills that are developmentally appropriate for young children, teaching them to save their own lives while building the confidence that can lead to a lifetime of fun in and around the water. With a forty year history of successfully providing self-rescue skills training to over 160,000 infants and young children, ISR seeks to maintain its perfect safety record and reach out to more communities to provide skills training to more children and water safety education to more parent to prevent future tragedies.
The ISR Lesson Experience is a comprehensive 6-8-week program. Five days per week (Monday- Friday), for a maximum of 10 minutes per day, a child works one-on-one with a certified ISR instructor to master the aquatic survival techniques. No child is ever thrown into the water; instead, they are safely guided through the learning process. Beginning at 6 months old, infants learn to hold their breath under water, roll onto their backs and float unassisted. Children over one year old learn the following sequence: how to hold their breath underwater, swim with their head down and eyes open, roll onto their back to float, rest, and breathe, and roll back over to resume swimming until the reach the side of the pool and can crawl out. Once skilled, children practice these techniques fully clothed.
