For more than 40 years, Infant Swimming Resource (ISR) has been teaching children critical Self-Rescue™ swimming skills -- giving children the competence and confidence to safely enjoy the water. ISR’s technique teaches babies from 6 months to 6 years of age how to save themselves if they were to end up in the water alone.
WHAT IS SELF-RESCUE? Going beyond traditional swim instruction, ISR teaches children how to survive in the water. Depending on your child’s age, your child will learn different levels of Self-Rescue skills, including a roll-back-to-float and/or a swim-float-swim.
SAFETY FIRST At ISR, your child’s safety is our first priority. Each swim 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.
ISR has safely delivered over 7 million lessons teaching water Self-Rescue skills to more than 200,000 infants and toddlers 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.
ISR has established the Community of Caring Foundation which offers financial scholarships to families to aid in the cost of the lessons. As part of the mission of Because of B.R.A.Y.D.E.N. we will donate some of our funds raised to the Community of Caring for families in the lowcountry.
