Statistics show that 83% of all children who drown are fully clothed at the time. During the final week of our ISR lessons, while under the watchful eye of Ms. Robin, each of her students have the opportunity to practice their self-rescue skills in both their summer and winter clothes.
Your Child’s Self-Rescue Skills:
Infants (6 months- 12 months old) will learn to hold their breath underwater, roll onto their back and float unassisted.
Children (1 year- 6 years old) will learn the following sequence: how to hold their breath underwater; swim with their head down and eyes open; roll onto their back to float, rest, and breath; and roll back over to resume swimming until they reach the side of the pool and can crawl out or be rescued by an adult.
Watch the video below. Jaden was bound and determined to show us that all that water weight was noooooo sweat!
