Infants 6 Months-Till They're Walking

(about 12 mo)

Infant floating / swim survival lessons

Why this young?

Because the sooner the safer!

Our program will teach your child breath control, correct floating posture and the ISR Self-Rescue skill of rolling onto their backs to float, rest and breathe until help arrives. These students learn basic survival skills, then are brought back at an older age to learn our Swim-Float-Swim sequence, which they already know a portion of.

Student swimming in ISR lessons

Older, more mobile children will learn the full ISR Self-Rescue sequence of swimming until they need air, rotating onto the back to float, then rolling back over to continue swimming. ISR students are taught to repeat this sequence until they reach the safety of the steps, side of the pool, or the shoreline.

Showing off survival swim skills in clothes


of children who drown, are fully clothed at the time?

This is why during the final week of lessons, while under the watchful eye of an instructor, each of our students has the opportunity to practice their self-rescue skills in their clothes. We like to do both summer and winter clothes as drowning knows no season.
