ISR Self-Rescue® Instruction Begins Registration for 13th Season in Gainesville, Georgia
Arm your child with an extra layer of protection if they ever reach the water alone. If your toddler found their way to water, unsupervised, fully clothed, would they be able to remain calm and turn themselves over, get air, and float until help arrived? Because drowning knows no season, every ISR Self-Rescue® student practices their self-rescue skills in countless scenarios, including full clothes before "graduating" the program. ISR of Lake Lanier's Self-Rescue® lessons will be given in Gainesville, Georgia.
In Infant Swimming Resource (ISR) Self-Rescue® instruction students receive the product of over 50 years of research and achieve unparalleled results. Founded in 1966 by Dr. Harvey Barnett, ISR is now the global leader in the industry it pioneered: survival swimming lessons for infants and young children. That's over 50 years y'all!
Today, our mission, “Not One More Child Drowns,” is the foundation of everything we do and is the driving force behind ISR’s employees, our independent ISR Instructors, and our major corporate partnerships. We believe the successful prevention of the leading cause of accidental death for children under the age of 4 in the U.S. will require a large group of caring and capable professionals whose sole focus is to save lives. To date, we have delivered more than 8,000,000 ISR Self-Rescue® lessons and saved more than 800 lives.
ISR believes pool fences, supervision, and pool alarms are important parts of a necessary multi-layered approach to drowning prevention. However, traditional lines of defense break down, and the over 4,000 drowning deaths per year bear a grim testament to the fact that traditional approaches are missing a key component: the child. ISR’s core conviction is that the child is the most important part of a drowning prevention strategy and our over 300,000 ISR graduates and 800 documented survival stories are proof that children can save themselves. Children are curious, capable, and have an uncanny ability to overcome obstacles like pool fences; at ISR we take that ability and teach them skills to potentially save themselves if they find themselves in the water alone.
Due to the recent restrictions from COVID-19, lessons will be temporarily postponed until July.

ISR Self-Rescue® instruction teaches the skills necessary for a child to reach the steps, edge of the pool or shore and ultimately save his or her life. 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.
At ISR of Lake Lanier your child will receive hands on one-on-one safe instruction from a highly certified and effective instructor. With just one student and instructor, this allows your instructor to focus fully on the individual needs of your child as all children are unique in their personalities and cognitive learning abilities.
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!
