Survival Swim Lessons

Infant Swimming Resource's proprietary Aquatic Self-Rescue™ survival swimming program is a 4 - 6 week course, scheduled 5 days per week, Monday through Friday, for not more than 10 minutes each day.  

With a focus on safe, customized one-on-one lessons by certified Instructors, ISR's survival swimming lessons emphasize health, ongoing student evaluations and parent education to deliver the most effective and safest results in the industry. 

Rollback to Float

All students, even those as young as 6 months old, learn the fundamental ISR skill of rolling onto their backs to float, rest, and breathe. Infants and toddlers who are not yet walking well will learn to maintain this position until help can reach them, and it's just as important for our older students as they incorporate more swimming skills. 


As toddlers and young children gain more physical skills on land, they are ready to learn more skills in the water as well. ISR teaches children to swim a short distance, rotate onto their back to a floating position, and then turn over to continue the sequence of swimming and floating until they can reach safety at the steps, side of the pool, or shoreline.
