To a child, the world has no limits. As a parent, you see a world of potential hazards. Give your child the Competence, Confidence and Skills of aquatic safety and survival from Infant Swimming Resource (ISR), the safest provider of Self-Rescue™ swimming lessons for children 6 months to 6 years of age.

ISR goes beyond traditional swimming instruction by combining the fun of swimming with ISR's Self-Rescue techniques which are proven to save lives. The goal of ISR is to turn your child into an "Aquatic Problem-Solver".

The ISR Mission: "Not One More Child Drowns".

Infant Swimming Resource (ISR) is the product of over 40 years of research and development in the areas of drowning prevention and aquatic survival instruction.   

ISR is a truly comprehensive infant swimming education and self-rescue skill instruction method that is well established in the fields of health care, psychology/behavioral sciences, anatomy and physiology.

Since 1966, ISR has safely delivered over 7 million lessons to teach water self-rescue skills to more than 200,000 babies and has educated parents and medical experts nationwide on water safety techniques and proven instruction methods. To date, ISR has 790 documented cases of children using ISR techniques to save themselves from drowning.

The Focus for ISR lessons is SURVIVAL.  Why? Because in the United States drowning is the leading cause of death for infants and young children under the age of 4.  This statistic is alarming, but the good news is...drowning is preventable.  ISR recommends building layers of protection between your child and the water.  These layers are essential because the reality is that most children do not drown because of LACK of supervision, it is a LAPSE in supervision, and it only takes a momentary distraction for a curious toddler to get out of your sight.

ISR uses both verbal and non-verbal cues to teach infant and young children. Even though your child might not yet communicate verbally, he or she can learn the ISR technique. Remember, your child may not talk, but he or she has learned to crawl, walk, and run. That is the only skill they need to find themselves in water danger.

Experts agree: Layers of Protection are needed  to prevent childhood drowning.  These layers include:

  • Constant supervision in and around the water.
  • Maintaining a safer pool environment through the use of locks, alarms, & pool fencing with self-closing, self-latching gates
  • Safe, effective survival swimming instruction for children as young as 6 months old by a qualified ISR Instructor
  • Take a CPR class
