ISR Self-Rescue ® 6 mos-15 mos and 5 years and older
Lessons are always one-on-one and instruction is tailored to every childs individual skill and comfort level. We do not have group lessons because we believe that your child should have our undivided attention. We customize lesson plans to ensure that they are the safest and most efficient lessons for every student. We want each child to experience success and use positive reinforcement to recognize each accomplishment, no matter how small. The parent, or caregiver, watches every lesson from the poolside and involvement is strongly encouraged.

Students attend short 10-minute lessons every Monday-Friday (five lessons per week). The reason for this is multifaceted. First, repetition and consistency are crucial elements of learning for young children. Second, most children will not be able to focus on the detailed tasks for longer and we want to take advantage of the best time for learning.

Babies 6-15 months of age are taught the rollback-to-float sequence. These young children learn from their physical environment. We honor this method of learning through sensorimotor teaching techniques. Through this process the child is taught breath control, correct floating posture, and the skills to attain a back float and remain floating for varied periods of time. Your child must be crawling and rolling both ways and sitting independently on land in order to begin lessons.

Children five years and older are taught the swim-float-swim rescue sequence. This means they learn to swim in a facedown position and learn to roll onto their back to a survival float when the need for air is sensed (usually after swimming for 3-4 seconds). After taking a short break on their back for about three seconds they will then flip back to their belly and be able to swim again if they so choose. 

We teach using behavioral psychology, sensorimotor learning and positive reinforcement to make the otherwise unforgiving water environment safe for your child to learn what will work to allow them to make progress while swimming and obtain air when needed. ISR has numerous safety protocols to provide the safest possible lesson. It typically takes about four weeks for ‘floaters’ and ‘big kid swim-float-swim’ students to learn the skills described. The exact length of time varies since every lesson is uniquely tailored to each child and all children are different. Additional fees will apply for students that need more than the allotted four weeks of lessons. 

Enrolling your child:

With a focus on providing your child with the safest and most effective lessons possible, ISR has developed our national registration process. The registration/processing fee is $105 per new student or $35/child for returning ISR students. This process provides ISR with an in-depth look at your childs health, medical history, and aquatic environment. Your childs registration information is kept confidential and reviewed by an ISR certified instructor.

Children 16 mos-4 years are taught the swim-float-stay or the swim-float-swim rescue sequence depending on their individual abilities. This means they learn to swim in a facedown position and learn to roll onto their back to a survival float when the need for air is sensed. This is the swim-float-stay. Children who are coordinated enough to roll back onto their belly after a taking a short break in their float for about three seconds  will then flip back to their belly and be able to swim again.

ISR Refresher lessons
These lessons are for children who have already completed their initial ISR session. As the name implies, these lessons enable the children to "refresh" the skills that they have already learned. Students attend lessons Monday-Friday for ten minutes each day. Unless directed otherwise by your instructor you should enroll your child for one week of refresher lessons for every three months since their last session. For example, if your child’s last session was 9 months ago you should enroll your child for 3 consecutive weeks of refresher lessons. 

ISR Maintenance Lessons
These lessons are for children who have already completed the initial ISR lessons and have continued with refresher lessons. Maintenance lessons help students to maintain their skills and confidence throughout the year. Ideally, maintenance lessons should be scheduled at the intervals recommended by the instructor, ranging from once or twice a week to once a month.

Stroke Lessons
In this lesson type your child will learn how to swim in a small group setting and will begin to build endurance and learn new techniques depending on skill level. This class is a good option for advanced ISR students that are moving on to swim team or that are ready for a new challenge. 
The stroke class will be offered from February-April. Check with your ISR instructor to find out if the group stroke classes are a good fit for your child! 

Snorkel
These lessons are for children 4 years of age and older who have completed self rescue lessons and stroke.   Lesson duration is one week.
