When, where, and why?

ISR was founded in 1966 by Dr. Harvey Barnett with the guiding mission “to prevent drowning and enrich the lives of children by teaching them to swim and to ensure that Not One More Child Drowns.

Does ISR have a proven track record?

Since its creation, ISR has provided over 8 million safe and effective lessons to more than 200,000 children.

How can I be sure that ISR is worth the cost?

While no program can guarantee that a water accident will not occur, this nationally recognized program teaches survival skills with safe and effective lessons taught by highly trained, certified instructors.
