Refresher and Maintenance Lessons
After becoming skilled in ISR Self-Rescue®, some parents and their children opt to continue lessons to maintain and practice their skills and simply because they love swimming! It is up to each individual family how they choose to protect their investment. Our recommendation is always twice a month to start if you desire to maintain your child's skills, OR 1-2 times per week if you'd like to build on your child's skills. If more are necessary, we can easily add them. If we find twice a month is more than enough, we can always adjust.
In subsequent seasons, it is recommended that students who have not kept up with maintenance lessons or who have hit several developmental milestones, enroll in refresher lessons. Refresher instruction will sharpen and refine skills for each child and reacclimate them to skills learned when their body was smaller and in a different stage of development. These lessons will also make sure your child is ready for the current summer season. The lessons last 2 weeks.
Between the ages of five and seven, students often move on to aquatic programs which teach side breathing and the traditional swimming strokes.
