  • Infant Swimming Resource (ISR) Session 3 (Starting April 1, up to 8 weeks) Crestview Middle School

    Going beyond traditional swim instruction, ISR teaches children how to survive in the water. Offered in partnership with Certified ISR Instructor, Christie Cloutman.For more than 40 years, Infant Swimming Resource (ISR) has been teaching children critical Self-Rescue® skills -- giving children the competence and confidence to safely enjoy the water. ISR’s technique teaches babies from 6 months to children 6 years of age how to save themselves if they were to end up in the water alone. Your child’s safety is our first priority. Each lesson is uniquely tailored to your child’s needs based on comprehensive assessment and continual monitoring of your child’s health and skill attainment. Because, every child learns at his or her own pace, your child will be gently guided through each skill level.A child 6-12 months learns: To hold their breath underwater To roll onto their back To float unassisted, rest and breathe until help arrives To perform these self-rescue skills first in a swim diaper and then while fully clothed A child 1-6 years learns: To hold their breath underwater Swim with their head down Roll onto their back to float, rest and breathe Roll back over to resume swimming until they reach the side of the pool, crawl out or be rescued by an adult To perform these self-rescue skills first in a swim diaper/bathing suit and then while fully clothed Lessons are scheduled every day (Monday-Friday) for 10 minutes each day. Sessions last approximately 4-6 weeks, depending on the individual child and their progression through the skills.
