Lesson Fees

National Registration Fee

All students must complete the registration process through the National ISR office prior to starting their first in-water lesson.  Registration forms must be filled out and paid for online.  Once you have completed the Pre-enrollment form, your chosen instructor will send you an information package containing their personal instructor code to register online. 

 The ISR National Registration fee is $105.00 initially, then $35.00 annually for refresher students, which will cover the cost of a screening procedure to assess the physical and developmental readiness of your child, & will be paid online via Pay Pal or credit card to the ISR National Office when you submit the National Registration form. 

Once you have completed the registration process,  the national office will contact your instructor and send her your child's information.  You will then get a confirmation from your instructor for a lesson start date and time.  Soon after you receive your e-mail approval, you will receive a voucher for a swim diaper and t-shirt in your welcome email.  If you haven't received your email with your kit coupon code and registration form, check your spam folder to see if it may have been blocked by the spam filters.

Take your coupon code to www.ISRSealStore.com where you can use it to redeem one ISR Children's shirt and one washable, re-usable swim diaper per child registered. Apply the code during the checkout process and be sure to spend the full value of the coupon, it cannot be less. You are welcome to purchase additional items and add them to your order, if they desire.

 Instructor Fees (New and Returning Students)

ISR Instructors are individual contractors and set their own weekly fees and discounts.  Check with your instructor for exact fees, payment options and for any discounts or promotions that may be available.

When it comes to your child, you always look for the most qualified, caring instructors. ISR is no different. Beyond sharing a devotion to child safety, each instructor is highly trained and certified in the Infant Swimming Resource program.  The ISR Instructor Training Program is an extensive 8 week course including supervised in-water training plus education and testing in subjects such as child psychology, physiology, and behavioral science. All instructors are required to maintain current CPR and First Aid certification and proper insurance. Plus, every ISR instructor must complete re-certification annually to maintain his or her affiliation with the program.

Typically it takes an average of 4-6 weeks for a 1-6 year old child to become skilled, however, ISR lessons are always tailored to each child's individual emotional and physical pace.  Babies 6 to 12 months typically take an average of 3-4 weeks to become skilled.

Attendance Policy

Consistency is crucial when learning survival swimming skills. Bringing your child every day will increase the rate of progress and retention of skills. Lessons are not pro-rated and you are required to pay for all scheduled lessons. Remember you are paying for a time slot and it is important that you strictly adhere to the attendance policy as there is most likely another student waiting for your child’s time slot.

Lessons cancelled by the Instructor (for instructor illness, weather, pool closures, vacation, etc.) are fully credited back to you. If you need special arrangements or have a planned vacation, please feel free to discuss this with your instructor.
