Infants and toddlers may lack the coordination and development to learn strokes, but anyone can learn the fundamentals of breath control, floating and water propulsion. Young children often don’t have the self-doubt that adults have, making it an ideal time for them to pick up a new skill.
Our ISR Program is ideal for children from 6 months to 4 years old.
Our Learn-to-Swim lessons are best for children of at least 4 years old or who have completed the ISR program. Learn-to-Swim Lessons are aimed at individuals who are at least 4 years old. Adults are also welcome to our Learn-to-Swim program. No prior swimming experience is necessary.
Young Masters is for children (4+) who have graduated from the Learn To Swim Program.
6 to 15 months: Children in this age group will learn to roll from a facedown position to an unassisted float.
15 months and up: Children in this age group will learn the Swim-Float-Swim sequence.
4 years and up: Children in this age group or those who have already completed the ISR Swim-Float-Swim lessons are ready for stroke-work/traditional lessons. These lessons focus on developing proper technique and body positioning for swimming freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly.
ISR students will swim 5 days a week (Monday-Friday) for 10 minutes each lesson. This frequency is necessary until the student has completed his/her training, generally 6-8 weeks. After this time, optional maintenance lessons can be taken at intervals appropriate to the student’s age and the frequency of swimming outside of lessons.
