ISR is aquatic self-rescue swimming for infants and young children.  ISR was founded in 1966 by Dr. Harvey Barnett and is recognized as the safest provider of self-rescue™ swimming lessons for children ages 6 months - 6 years.  ISR is the nation's only medically sound swim instruction program.  Our safety track record is 100%. 

Our mission is "To prevent drowning and enrich the lives of children by teaching them to swim." 


Drowning is an epidemic for young children. In Texas, it is the #1 cause of accidental death for children ages 0-4.  Every day 11 children in the US die from drowning and another 39 are permanently impaired as the result of injuries from a near drowning.  Children are experts at only takes a moment and your child could be at risk. Swimming is a vital skill for children to learn and ISR can teach your child the skills he or she may need to survive. For more information on the ISR program, including its history, an overview of the technique and video of our students, please visit our award winning website  You may also wish to visit the ISR page on this website to learn more. If  you would like more information about lessons please feel free to call or email.  

·       What your child will learn:   A baby from 6 months to 12 months will learn how to hold their breath underwater, roll onto their back and float unassisted until someone rescues them.  A child from 1 year old to 6 years old,  will learn how to hold their breath underwater, swim head down, roll onto their back to float, rest and breathe; then roll back over to resume swimming until they reach the side of the pool and crawl out. 

This is called the ISR swim-float-swim sequence.  All children will learn how to perform the skills in different types of clothes. Upon completion of the ISR program, your child will have the survival skills needed to save him or herself along with the enjoyment of
recreational swimming.  


·       Class Structure:  Your child’s classes are 5 days a week, Monday – Friday.  Each class will be approximately 10 minutes long with just one child and myself in the water.  Much is accomplished in a short but very intense private lesson  Your child will have the same 10 - minute time slot each day.   You can expect your child to complete the initial course in 4 – 6 weeks.   Each lesson is individualized and custom tailored for your child's needs and abilities.    


·       Weekly Fees:  $90.00 per week for morning classes, $100.00 per week for evening classes.  This can be paid via cash, check, or money order.  Now accepting Paypal!

There is an annual refresher fee or update fee of $35.00 for returning students.  This fee can be paid online via Paypal or credit card.  Your registration fee covers the cost of screening procedures for physical and developmental readiness of your child by our team of medical professionals.  You will also receive your ISR Introductory Kit which includes your Parent Resource Book, informative DVD, and voucher for a swim diaper (if needed) and ISR t-shirt at our ISR Seal Store online.
