ISR Self-Rescue® lessons give children between the ages of six months to six-years-old the skills to be comfortable and confident in the water.
In an effort to ensure that not one more child drowns, the goal of the program is to teach children survival techniques to use should they ever reach the water alone.
Lessons are taught by Shanon Murphy, a certified ISR instructor, in the indoor pool at the BRiCk.
For children to master these life-saving techniques, they will attend every day, Monday - Friday for a six week period. Each lesson lasts approximately 10 minutes and will occur between 4:30 - 7:30 p.m.
Shanon Murphy was inspired to teach ISR Self-Rescue® lessons through a personal family tragedy. Shanon's nephew, Ethan, and his grandfather died in a drowning accident on July 13, 2011. Since this time she has been determined to find a way to prevent other drowning deaths. Ethan was under the supervision of his grandpa when this accident occurred in the family's home swimming pool. Even with adult supervision, accidents happen.
Shanon knows that these lessons can and do save lives. And she wants to help your family never feel the pain that her family did after losing Ethan.
