What your child needs for lessons:
Each day you come for lessons you should pack three towels, two pairs of plastic pants and your BUDS sheet. I will not be able to swim your child if you forget any of these items.
Registration: Each parent must submit a
registration on-line prior to starting swim lessons. The registration
$105.00 per child. This allows our Registration Evaluation Team to
students' medical history prior to the first day of lessons. Certain medical conditions will require
approval and may require a release from your doctor. During lessons,
are closely monitored for temperature fatigue, physical fatigue and
well-being. To provide a safe lesson, you will complete a daily log of
child's bowel, urine, diet and sleep habits (BUDS). Students will not
allowed to swim without a full and proper BUDS sheet and appropriate
registration and any necessary clearances.
All ISR lessons are taught one-on-one. Lessons are available for children ages 6 months to about 6 years. Students attend short private lessons five days a week. This helps provide a very safe lesson and is key to the retention of skills. Students can start any time (typically on a Monday) and the parent or caretaker watches poolside.
Roll back to Float: This is a basic survival skill for students who are crawling (generally 6-8 months) through about 11 months He or she will be taught to rotate from a face-down position in the water to a back float. The baby will be taught to rest and breathe on his or her back until help arrives. A child who enrolls in this program as an infant will learn the correct posture for swimming early which will facilitate learning at the next level. You can expect that the typical infant will attend 5 lessons per week for an average of 3-4 weeks to attain these skills.
Swim-Float-Swim: A child who is walking or very close to walking (usually anytime after 11 months to about 6 years) will learn a swim-float-swim sequence. He or she will be taught to swim face down using arms and legs (similar to a freestyle stroke); roll on his or her back to float, rest and breathe when he or she needs air; and then flip over onto his or her stomach to continue swimming until he or she reaches a point of safety. This swim-float-swim sequence can be repeated as many times as is necessary to reach safety. This skill set can be achieved with 5 lessons per week in about 4-6 weeks.
accomplishing these skills in a bathing suit, children will then
skills in summer clothing and then progress onto winter clothing. This
additional work is critical to survival swimming because most children
accidentally fall into the water do so while fully clothed.
Due to the
tremendous physical and emotional changes of infants and young
follow-up refresher lessons are recommended at least every 6 months
age of 4 when the growth rate begins to slow down. This serves to
learned and stabilized skills for maximum retention. You may also wish
schedule periodic maintenance.
