What is ISR?

Infant Swimming Resource is the safest and most effective provider of survival swimming lessons worldwide, teaching ISR Self-Rescue skills to children ages 6 months to 6 years old. With 50 years of experience and the highest safety standards in the industry, ISR is able to deliver the best survival swimming instruction in the world today. The result? Over 8 million safe and effective lessons delivered, providing children with a foundation for safety and a lifetime of fun in and around the water.

Through our survival swim lesson program your child can learn critical survival skills and a foundation for lifelong enjoyment of the water.  Lessons are always one-on-one and instruction will be tailored to your child’s skill and comfort level. We do not have “group” lessons, because we believe your child should have our undivided attention. We customize their lessons, especially for them, to ensure the safest, most efficient lessons. We want each child to experience success and use positive reinforcement to recognize each accomplishment, no matter how small.  Students attend 10-minute lessons every Monday-Friday.

6 to 12 months old

The focus is on teaching the child to roll onto their back to float, rest and breathe, and to be able to maintain this life-saving position until help arrives.

1 to 6 years old

The focus is on teaching the swim-float-swim survival sequence. Children learn to swim with their head down; roll onto their back to float, rest, and breathe; and roll back over to resume swimming until they reach the side of the pool, where they can either crawl out or until they can be rescued.

Refresher Lessons

Children grow and develop rapidly from infants to toddlers and young children. In accordance with this growth, children enrolled in ISR return periodically to participate in Refresher Lessons to fine-tune their existing skills.

About ISR

The Sooner, The Safer!

Founded in 1966, Infant Swimming Resource (ISR) with its Self-Rescue program is nationally recognized as the safest provider of survival swimming lessons for infants and young children. With over 50 years of research and development, highly-trained certified Instructors committed to safety, and a proven history of success, parents can rest assured that their children are receiving the best possible instruction in the world today.

ISR believes pool fences, supervision, and pool alarms are important parts of a necessary multi-layered approach to drowning prevention. However, traditional lines of defense break down and the over 4,000 drowning deaths per year bear a grim testament to the fact that traditional approaches are missing a key component: the child. ISR’s core conviction is that the child is the most important part of a drowning prevention strategy and our over 300,000 ISR graduates and over 800 documented survival stories are proof that children can save themselves.

Children are curious, capable, and have an uncanny ability to overcome obstacles like pool fences; at ISR we take that ability and teach them skills to potentially save themselves if they find themselves in the water alone.

Meet the Instructor

I was born and raised in Florida and currently live in New Port Richey with my husband and our two daughters. In 2010, I was introduced to ISR when a friend showed off the skills of her 18-month old daughter.  I was truly blown away and decided that these skills were so important for my daughter to learn as well.

I searched and found Tracey, an Instructor who drove 45 minutes to teach my child these life-saving skills.  Tracey had an amazing story of her own and was dedicated to the mission of “Not One More Child Drowns.” She showed such patience with my daughter.  I was elated the first time she rolled on to her back to float and realized that this was something every child should learn.

In 2013, I changed the direction of my career and became an ISR Instructor.  I went through a six week training course which consisted of in-water training with students and classroom study including behavioral psychology, anatomy, physiology, and ISR proven techniques. I am now approaching my 5th season of ISR and absolutely love what I do. There is nothing more important than assuring the safety of your children and the peace that it gives a parent to know that if their child ever happens to find themselves alone in the water, they have an extra layer of protection with the skills of ISR Self-Rescue.  I am committed to serving the communities around me and look forward to meeting you and your child.

Water Safety

Even if your child has had swimming lessons, no child is drown-proof and there is absolutely no substitute for adult supervision. Drowning is the leading cause of accidental death for children between the ages of one and four. At ISR, we believe in layers of protection because we know that sometimes supervision fails. 

#1

Effective Supervision

Effective Supervision

The most critical line of defense is adult supervision. No level of aquatic skill can replace active supervision. If your child is ever missing, look in the water first.

#2

Pool Fences

Pool Fences

Install a permanent 4-sided fence with self-locking gates. Ensure that the pool fence is at least 3-5 feet from the pool edge.

#3

Alarms

Alarms

Make sure all doors and windows leading to the pool are locked and alarmed.

#4

ISR’s Self-Rescue training is an added layer of protection, teaching your child water survival skills in a completely safe environment.

If an emergency happens, it is essential parents and families are prepared. Learn to perform CPR on children and adults and remember to update those skills regularly.
