Be sure that you have reviewed the available times / locations / dates and they work for your family. Email us at the email address provided for your state; indicate the date, location and time you are hoping to have for lessons. We will check the schedule to ensure the time you have chosen (or as close to it as possible) is available and send you the registration link. We will only hold your spot for 24-hours while you register. If you do not register in that timeframe, we will release your spot to another family.

Yes! ISR is dedicated to safety, and maintaining numerous safety protocols to promote safe lessons. Your child’s health and well-being are closely monitored on a daily basis. In addition, your child’s medical and developmental history is a mandatory part of the ISR national registration process, all of which is held strictly confidential.
All ISR Instructors undergo an intensive and rigorous training program that far exceeds any other training program of this kind. Each ISR Instructor is also required to attend yearly conferences, and undergo an extensive re-certification process. Your education in the area of aquatic safety for your entire family is an integral part of your child’s lessons, as well. You will receive a DVD and Parent Resource Book which educates you about every aspect of swimming for infants and children, written by Dr. Harvey Barnett and JoAnn Barnett.
Consider these additional points:
- No child is ever thrown into the pool.
- A child is never submerged for more than seven (7) seconds.
- ISR Instructors monitor your child for temperature and muscular fatigue, as well as physical and psychological well-being.
- Your child’s daily routines outside of ISR lessons hold valuable data for your instructor. You will receive instruction on how to communicate this information to your instructor.
By reading the Parent Resource Book and watching the DVD, you will understand why ISR Instructors are truly qualified to teach actual aquatic skills to infants and young children under the age of 6 years.
