Meet Jen Chabus


Jen Chabus is a Certified Infant Swimming Resource Instructor. Her passion is helping children learn and grow. Jen previously taught special needs Pre-Kindergarten children and is a mom to three young boys.

Meet Sarah Richter


Sarah Richter is a Certified Infant Swimming Resource Instructor who has two wonderful children that both went through ISR lessons after a failed attempt at traditional swim lessons. She fell in love with ISR, so much so that she became an instructor. Not only does Sarah love what she does everyday, but she loves to be a part of the mission that “not one more child drowns.”

What Your Child Will Learn During ISR Lessons


Infant Swim Resource Techniques

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.

Children 6 months old to 12 months old

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. 

Children 1 year old to 6 years old

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.

About ISR

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.  

Client Reviews


“We cannot say enough good things about both Jen & Sarah! 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. My 3 year old completed with Sarah last year and my 1 year old is almost finished with Jen. 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.

“Sarah is incredible and made me and my son so comfortable and happy with the experience. She’s just an all around joy to work with.” - Summerlin H.
