Survival Swimming Lessons for Your Child

Survival Swimming Lessons for Your Child

Providing Survival Swimming Lessons

My name is Stacy Wistuba and I am a certified Infant Swimming Resources Instructor and proud owner of Gateway ISR. With more then 30 years of experience teaching swimming lessons I have expanded my knowledge into Infant Swimming Resource (ISR) to focus on infants and toddler’s survival swimming. I am excited that I have partnered with local facilities to bring ISR to the Gateway Region helping you and your child learn about survival swimming.

ISR Mission: “Not One More Child Drowns.”

About ISR

Thousands of ISR lessons are taught everyday worldwide as part of the organization’s commitment to preventing aquatic pediatric drowning. The ISR pledge made to parents more then 50 years ago, to reach the next child before they reach the water alone, is honored daily to achieve ISR's mission:

“Not One More Child Drowns.”

Infant Swimming Resource’s Self Rescue Program teaches children from 6 months to 6 years of age how to survive if they were to reach the water alone.

Unlike traditional swimming lessons, ISR’s survival swimming technique is a product of over 50 years of research and development and is the safest approach to survival swimming in the world. Focused on your child’s stage of development and readiness, each one-on-one ISR lesson is customized to your child's abilities in the water.

ISR has a worldwide network of certified Instructors and has delivered more than 8 million safe lessons. As a result, ISR is proven to save lives—with over 800 documented cases where children have used ISR’s techniques to save their own lives.

Safety First

ISR has the highest safety standards in the industry. Getting your child the right swimming lesson program and Instructor is a vital part of your child’s safety. Your child’s safety is my number one priority. Each survival swimming lesson is tailored to your child’s needs based on an extensive assessment and continual monitoring of their health and skill attainment. I completely understand and fully aware that every child learns at their level of development and readiness.

When doing research, you will come across a lot of different options. You will find valuable information throughout the Gateway ISR website and ISR Self Rescue website related to swimming lessons for infants, toddlers and young children as well as registration, fees and scheduling, and what you will need to accomplish to start lessons.
