While you are watching your ISR of Lake Lanier student in the water this July 4th weekend, she will have her eye on the wall or steps. One of the first skills taught in ISR Self-Rescue® instruction is to open the eyes underwater to look for safety at the edge of the pool, the ladder, or the steps so that, once the child learns the full ISR Self-Rescue® set of skills, she can swim-float-swim!
Don't forget YOU have to be the CEO of your child (Constant Eyes On)!
The ISR Self-Rescue™ Swim-Float-Swim program teaches the skills necessary for a child to reach the steps, edge of the pool or shore. This process begins with teaching breath control and the skills to turn around in the water to secure the edge. Children learn correct swimming posture, movement through the water, the rollback-to-float sequence, as well as rotating to a face down position to continue to swim. This “swim-float-swim” sequence can be repeated until safety is reached.
When you learn about ISR, you know this is the most important level of protection you can give your child to prevent drowning. If fences, supervision, and alarms fail, your child's skill is an additional measure of protection!
