Heading 1

Infants 6 months to 1 year old

learn the ISR Self-Rescue™ skill of rolling onto their backs to float, rest and breathe. They learn to maintain this position until help arrives.

Children over one year old

learn the ISR Self-Rescue™ sequence of swimming until they need air, rotating onto the back to float, then rolling back over to continue swimming. ISR students are taught to repeat this sequence until they reach the safety of the steps, side of the pool, or the shoreline.

Every ISR Student

practices their skills fully-clothed, because many children who drown were not dressed for a day at the pool or beach.
