ISRʼ S Self-Rescue™ survival swimming program is a 6 week course, on average, and is scheduled 5 days per week, Monday through Friday, for 10 minutes each day. With a focus on safe, customized, one-on-one lessons by certiﬁed Instructors.
ISRʼ s lessons emphasize health, ongoing program evaluations and parent education. Children may begin lessons at 6 months of age until 6 years of age. Lessons for infants 6-12 months old focus 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.Lessons for children 1-6 years old focus 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. Once the children are fully skilled they will practice ISRʼs survival techniques fully clothed during lessons.
