Registration Info

Prior to registering for ISR lessons, please be sure that you have contacted us directly with your preferred location and time slot so that we can get you onto the schedule.

Lesson fees are in addition to the registration fee (please see below under "Course Fee".) The registration fee for new students is $105 per child, and is paid directly to Infant Swimming Resource through the registration link which will be provided to you by the instructor.

Upon approval, you will also receive an email with your child's registration form, as well as a website link and code to order the appropriate-sized t-shirt and swim diaper (or other items of your choice) for your child. Your items should arrive within 7 days from the date of your order.

You will also receive the link to our Parent Resource Book, which is a valuable tool for parents and grandparents to learn more about the ISR program and how to support your child during their ISR lessons.

Course Fee

Please know that ISR instructors are independent, and pricing will vary based on location and experience. Some instructors charge a weekly fee; some instructors charge a one-time course fee. The pricing set by ISR Chicago/Andie Groff does not reflect that of other instructors locally or nationally. Lesson fees are in addition to the registration fee, and will be made payable directly to the instructor.

The one-time course fee with ISR Chicago/Andie Groff varies based on location, and can be paid in 6 weekly installments. The first payment is due within 48 hours of registration. Cash or credit card are the accepted forms of payment. Course fees are non-refundable.


ISR Chicago offers a 10% military and civil service discount, as well as a scholarship program for parents who can demonstrate the need for financial assistance. Financial assistance may be offered through the Live Like Jake Foundation, or through the instructor as a personal scholarship. Please contact your instructor for details.

Refresher Lessons

ISR recommends that you bring your child back for refresher lessons. Frequency depends on the child's age, growth rate, skill level and confidence level. The goal of refreshers is to help your child adjust his/her new body size and weight to his existing skill level.

Your instructor will work with your child to help fine-tune his or her aquatic experience to assist with building efficiency, which will result in self-confidence. This is especially important if your child has not been able to practice any appropriate aquatic skill between seasons.

While NO program can "drown proof" your child, ISR lessons typically have a 94% retention rate up to one year later. Refresher lessons are important because children change rapidly both cognitively and physically during the first 4-5 years of life. It is important that their aquatic skills and abilities grow with their bodies.

The registration fee for refresher lessons is $35 per child annually. Refresher lessons are available to students who have already been registered with an ISR instructor and have previously taken a course.

Children moving from the rollback-to-float program to the swim-float-swim program will need approximately 4-6 weeks of lessons.

Children refreshing their swim-float-swim program will need approximately 2-4 weeks of lessons.

Refresher lessons are priced at the same rate families paid previously (so there is no increase in weekly fees for current ISR families). Previous scholarship families will pay the scholarship rate for refresher lessons.
