What Will Your Child Learn

ISR teaches each child survival skills in conjunction with basic swimming lessons that give them the competence required to safely enjoy the water.  

The Infant Swimming Resource’s Self-Rescue® survival swimming program is a 4-6 week course, scheduled 5 days per week, Monday-Friday, for 10 minutes each day.

Your child will receive customized, one-on-one lessons that progress at the child’s speed.  There is focus on safety, health, and parent education.


ISR Survival Skills

ISR Survival Skills

Children 6-12 Months Old

Lessons focus on teaching the child to roll onto their back to float, rest and breathe, and to be able to maintain this life-saving position until help arrives. 


Children 1-6 Years Old

Lessons focus on teaching the swim-float-swim survival sequence.  Children learn to swim with their head down, roll onto their back to float, rest, and breathe; and roll back over to resume swimming until they reach the side of the pool, where they can either crawl out or until they can be rescued.


Refresher Lessons

Refresher lessons are extremely important in continuing and maintaining your child’s ISR Self-Rescue® skill development.  Children grow and develop rapidly from infants to toddlers and young children.   This development process represents improved strength, coordination, and a more finely tuned cognitive ability. In accordance with this growth, children enrolled in ISR return periodically to participate in Refresher Lessons.

Refresher lessons are designed to fine-tune your child's existing ISR Self-Rescue® skills to meet the demands of their growing bodies. It will allow them to make adjustments in their float and strengthen their swim.

Previous Swim-Float-Swim students will take approximately 2 weeks to complete.

Previous Rollback-to-Float students, refresher lessons will likely take approximately 3-4 weeks.

Maintenance Lessons

Maintenance lessons are also available at any time for regular fine-tuning of your child's skills. These lessons are highly recommended.
