What Your Child Will Learn in ISR Lessons
ISR’s unique results are achieved through fully customized, safe and effective, one-on-one lessons with only your child and the Instructor in the water. What your
child will learn, and the way he or she will learn it, is what makes ISR so different from traditional swimming lessons. Always putting safety first, ISR emphasizes competence, which leads to
confidence, and provides the foundation for a lifetime of enjoyment in and around the water.
What your child will learn depends on his or her age and developmental readiness, but in all cases, at minimum, your child will learn to roll onto his or her back to
float, rest, and breathe, and to maintain this position until help arrives.
Children 6-12 Months Old
Infants ages 6 months to 1 year are taught the ISR Self-Rescue® skill of backfloating independently and how to roll onto their backs to float, rest and breathe. They learn to maintain this
position until help arrives.
ISR's Roll-Back-to-Float Sequence from Infant Swimming Resource on Vimeo.
A child who enrolls in the floating class as an infant will learn the correct posture for swimming early, which will facilitate learning at the next level. The typical infant will take
approximately 3-4 weeks to attain these skills. Lessons are 5 days per week for approximately 10 minutes per day. CLICK HERE to learn why lessons are structured in this manner and other FAQ's.
Children 1-6 Years Old
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.
