ISR LESSONS - I offer lessons January - October. Lessons are scheduled every ten minutes and students attend lessons five days a week Monday - Friday. Each lesson for every child is individualized, one-on-one with your child and I in the water. My schedule fills very quickly and stays full, but I will make every effort to accommodate your schedule. I am in the water most daylight hours so it may take me a day or so to get back to you. I appreciate your patience and I look forward to speaking with you.
ISR lessons are usually accomplished in 6-8 weeks depending on child's progress.
REGISTRATION - All students must complete the registration process through the National ISR office prior to starting their first in-water lesson. Registration forms must be filled out and paid for online. When you are ready to proceed with your child's registration, email or call me and I will send you my personal instructor code URL to register online. The $105.00 National Registration fee (NON-REFUNDABLE) for new students and $35.00 for renewal each year. The registration will cover the cost of a screening procedure to assess the physical and developmental readiness of your child, and can be paid online via Pay Pal or credit card when you submit the National Registration form. Once you complete the registration the ISR home office will contact me and send me your child's information. You will get a confirmation email from ISR after registration, and the email will also have promotional code such that you can order a free t-shirt and swim diaper (should it be necessary) for your child from the ISR Seal Store www.isrsealstore.com. *Please know that if you purchase an item for $10.00 your coupon with the remaining $5.00 will not work to pay for the shipping costs.
*The $105.00 to ISR, Inc. fee covers a medical screening by our ISR Registration Evaluation Team (RET) to assess the physical and developmental readiness of your child. Determination of appropriateness for lessons is not based on a particular condition or diagnosis, rather on the unique characteristics of the child. The registration fee also covers the course materials, which include Parent Resource Book that you will receive within 5 days of completing the online registration. Within a few days you will receive a package in the mail from ISR containing your Parent Resource Book and informational DVD. You will then get a confirmation from me for a lesson start date and time.
During lessons, students are closely monitored for temperature fatigue, physical fatigue and general well-being. To provide a safe lesson, you must complete a daily log of your child's bowel, urine, diet and sleep habits (BUDS). Students will not be allowed to swim without a full and proper BUDS form and appropriate registration and any necessary clearances required by the RET. HOW TO REGISTER - Survival swimming lessons like those offered by ISR are an invaluable investment in your child’s safety and well being, in addition to your own piece of mind!

PAYMENT POLICIES - The weekly lesson fee is paid directly to Alyssa Neider. Weekly lesson payments are due on Monday of every week for that week of lessons. Accepted forms of payment are cash, check, debit/credit card. It is at my discretion to pro-rate weekly lessons, you are paying for your child's time slot. Please contact me for 'SPECIAL' tuition information, as often times I run "pre-season" specials. I do offer "special" weekly tuition rates for military, teachers and first responders.
*Multi-child, Military, Teacher & First Responder discounts available upon request. Full lesson scholarships and financial assistance are available for families who are otherwise unable to participate in ISR lessons due to cost. The weekly tuition charge is $100.00 per week per child, paid directly to me. Please sign up for ISR lessons by contacting me directly at: 608.347.8317 or via the registration link above. Please call me directly if you have specific questions not answered here.
SCHEDULING LESSONS - Students should not eat at least 2 hours prior to lessons. No milk or dairy products at least two hours prior to lessons. It is difficult for students to work with a full tummy. Please consider feeding times, nap times, and planned vacations when scheduling the desired lessons dates and time for your child. Consistency is imperative to your child's success in the water. Once again, my schedule fills very fast and scheduling is contingent upon time slots becoming available as other students finish their course. Every Monday I enroll new students as others finish up. I recommend registering as early as possible to better accommodate the time and dates you desire.
