Infant Swimming Resource to offer classes

By Staff | Jan 20, 2011

Infant Swimming Resource (ISR), a provider of survival swimming lessons for babies and toddlers from six months to six years old, announced that it will offer Self-Rescue lessons at two Maui locations starting Jan. 31.

ISR integrates swimming skills that are developmentally appropriate for young children, teaching them to save their own lives while building the confidence that can lead to a lifetime of fun in and around the water.

For more than 40 years, ISR has provided Self-Rescue skills training to more than 200,000 infants and young children. The ISR lesson experience is a comprehensive six-week program. Each lesson is customized for the child as he or she is safely guided through the learning process.

Infants six months to 12 months learn to hold their breath underwater, roll onto their backs and float unassisted. Keiki ages one to six learn how to hold their breath underwater; swim with their head down and eyes open; roll onto their back to float, rest and breathe; and roll back over to resume swimming until they reach the side of the pool and can crawl out. Once skilled, children practice these techniques fully clothed.

Angela Champion will teach the classes in Kihei and Paia.
