The ISR Water Self-Rescue program is for children 6 months to 6 years of age.
It is a progressive style of teaching and is scheduled 5 days per week,
Monday through Friday, for up to 10 minutes each day.
Sessions are in 4 week intervals.
With a focus on safe, individualized, one-on-one lessons, The ISR program has an emphasizes on the child's health with an ongoing evaluation to deliver the most effective and safest swimming & water self-rescue lessons in the industry.
ISR Session - ages 1 - 6 years
Lessons for children 1-6 years who are walking and running, focus on learning the
Swim-Float-Swim survival sequence. Children learn to swim with their head down,
roll onto their backs to float, rest and breathe, then flip back over to resume
swimming until they reach safety, where they can crawl out or in other
circumstances, be rescued. If a student needs more than the
4 week session, we will evaluate the student at the end of the session
to determine how many weeks they will need.
Swim-Float-Swim (4-8 weeks M-F)
ISR Session - ages 6 month - 12/14 months
Lessons for children 6-12+ months who are sitting up and/or crawling, focus on
learning the Roll-Back-To-Float sequence. Children learn to roll onto their backs to
float, rest and breathe, and to be able to maintain this life-saving position until help arrives.
Roll-Back-To-Float (approx 4 weeks M-F )
Refresher lessons are extremely important in continuing and maintaining your child's ISR Water Self-Rescue® skill development. Children grow and develop rapidly from infants to toddlers and young children. This development process represents improved strength, coordination, and amore finely tuned cognitive ability. In accordance with this growth, children enrolled in ISR return periodically to participate in a refresher course.
Refresher Lessons (1-2 weeks M-F)
ISR Maintenance Lessons
Maintenance lessons can be scheduled one, or two times per week to maintain
your child's ISR Water Self-Rescue skills.
Statistics indicate that most children who fall into water are fully clothed. Therefore, once they have learned their water self-rescue skills, they will practice their ISR skills fully clothed.
