Coming to the Mandel JCC – Labor Day – October 31, 2014 

ISR’s (Infant Swimming Rescue) results are achieved through fully customized, safe and effective, one-on-one lessons with only your child and the Instructor in the water. What your child will learn, and the way he or she will learn it, is what makes ISR so different from traditional swimming lessons. Always putting safety first, ISR emphasizes competence, which leads to confidence, and provides the foundation for a lifetime of enjoyment in and around the water.

ISR survival swimming lessons will teach your child Self-Rescue ™ skills as well as give them confidence to enjoy water activities.  Infant Swimming Resource goes beyond traditional swimming instruction, by teaching children aquatic survival techniques designed to help them survive should they reach the water alone. For more than 45 years ISR’s proven Self-Rescue™ program has and continues to provide:

- Lesson Structure: Your child's classes are 5 days a week, Monday - Friday. Each class will be a maximum of 10 minutes with just one child and myself in the water. Much is accomplished in each short private lesson. Your child will have the same 10- minute time slot each day.
- Maintenance Lessons: Upon completion of the initial lessons, regular fine-tuning of your child's skills is highly recommended.  Maintenance lessons can be once a week, once a month, or whatever frequency suits your schedule.  Maintenance lessons can alleviate the need for a full refresher later.
- Refresher Classes: Upon completion of their initial lessons, every child should take a short 2-3 week refresher course the following year to help them adjust to their new body size in the water and re-evaluate their skill set.

Lesson will be available Monday - Fridays weather permitting.   Two Saturday mornings available for make up sessions if needed.   Roster slots will be open from 3:00-6:00.

ISR lessons are available to all children over 6 months that are first registered and approved by ISR on line. ISR lessons are not limited to infants and are available for all ages of children.
