infant swimming resource

Infant Swimming Resource (ISR) goes beyond traditional swimming lessons by teaching children ages 6 months to 6 years old ISR Self-Rescue techniques. These methods are designed to help them survive should they find the water alone - building confident and competent aquatic problem-solvers!

With a focus on safe, one-on-one lessons by certified Instructors, ISR’s survival swimming lessons are customized to the abilities of your child. Each lesson emphasizes health & safety, ongoing program evaluations and parent education to deliver the most effective and safest results in the industry. With over 50 years of research and development, ISR’s approach has delivered more than 8 million safe lessons - with more than 800 documented cases of students using their ISR skills to save their own lives.

The Greater St. Louis area has a team of Certified ISR Instructors working toward ISR’s mission: “Not One More Child Drowns.” Reach out to one of our Certified Instructors below to learn more today!
