About ISR

Infant Swimming Resource


Infant Swimming Resource (ISR) is the safest and ONLY provider of comprehensive swimming and aquatic self-rescue™ instruction.  Our method of clinically researched instruction emphasizes developmentally-appropriate skills training to ensure that your child is learning self-rescue skills and developing the competence required to enjoy the water.  


Integrated into the skills training of infants and young children is the ISR Parent Education program. This program seeks to enable the parents and caretakers to understand drowning prevention methods and thereby safeguard their child’s aquatic environment. ISR lessons give children the competence and confidence to be aquatic problem solvers. 


Children as young as 6 months can participate in ISR lessons.  ISR lessons are intensive lessons held 5 days per week for an average of 4-6 weeks.

What your child will learn:                       


Infants (6 months- 12 months old) will learn to hold their breath underwater,

roll onto their back and float unassisted.


Children (1 year- 6 years old) will 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 they reach the side of the pool and can crawl out or be rescued by an adult.


Since statistics show that 83% of all children who drown are fully clothed at the time, during the final week of lessons, while under the watchful eye of an instructor, each of our students have the opportunity to practice their self-rescue skills in both their summer/fall and winter clothes.
