At Survival Swim of Coral Springs & Parkland:
ISR’s unique 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.
What your child will learn depends on his or her age and developmental readiness, but in all cases, at minimum, your child will learn to roll onto his or her back to float, rest, and breathe, and to maintain this position until help arrives.
Generally speaking, children ages 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.
Older, more mobile children will learn the full 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 of swim/float/swim.
Founded in 1966 by Dr. Harvey Barnett, ISR is now the global leader in the industry it pioneered: survival swimming lessons for infants and young children. The ISR Self-Rescue® instruction students receive today is the product of over 45 years of research and achieves unparalleled results. Nationally, more than 8 million ISR Self-Rescue® lessons have been taught, which have saved more than 800 lives. based on documented survival stories. ISR believes pool fences, supervision, and pool alarms are important parts of a necessary multi-layered approach to drowning prevention. However, traditional lines of defense break down, and ISR’s core conviction is that child survival swim is the most important part of a drowning prevention strategy.
"I cannot recommend Jennifer more! The commitment to 5 days a week is worth every second! Jennifer won me over just me talking to me over the phone. Her bubbly personality and passion for swim safety was evident before we had our first lesson. Every day I would watch my daughter in the pool and see how quickly she would learn new skills. It was amazing how much she would pick up in such a short period of time. Jennifer is kind, patient, and truly cares about her students!" - Dari M.
"Jen is an awesome, hard working and great person. Thank you so much Jen for teaching my daughter to be able to survive in the water and be safe. We're very grateful for you, the time you spent and took to teach her and we're amazed with how quick our daughter learned. I can say I’m secure and happy that she is protected if ever anything would happen. Jen did an amazing job, it's definitely worth it and she's an amazing person" - Jamie H.
“If you’re looking for honest, kind, patient instructors who are good at what they do- this is the place for you! I am so happy we found them. I highly recommend ISR Self Rescue Swim of Coral Springs & Parkland to anyone who wants to get their kids water safe!” - Stephanie V.
“Signing up for ISR with Jen has been the best decision we’ve made for our daughter by far! It’s absolutely amazing to see how far we’ve come in just 4 short weeks! Yes, it’s definitely a commitment BUT has been so doable! Way more so than we anticipated. I also anticipated a lot of tears, but nope! Our almost 2 year old absolutely LOVES her ISR lesson, so much so that getting her to leave the lesson has been her biggest challenge! If you’re on the fence, DO NOT HESITATE! We will absolutely be seeking out Jen for refresher lessons and lessons for future children!“ - Heather M.
"Highly recommended is an understatement!!!! Our son, 7 months, was enrolled with Jen in the first session being offered after COVID reopening began in late May. While we were hesitant to be out of quarantine, we fully understood the need for water safety in our home with a pool and canal in our backyard. Jen had safety and sanitation measures in place and I was never fearful of our health by going to lessons at her home. We attended 5 days a week, 10 minutes a day and after 6 weeks, we had a fully skilled and certified infant!! I am confident in his abilities to self rescue in the unlikely event that he reached water alone. We would not have that confidence without Jen’s instruction. Her dedication to our son was so apparent. She cares for her students as if they were her own children. She utilized her training and her ISR instructor resources to work with our son throughout his “rollback to float” journey. She is extremely passionate about ISR, which makes her even more valuable as an instructor." Heather K.
