ISR Swim lessons for young kids in San Diego

Keep your child safe in the water

About ISR

ISR believes pool fences, supervision, and pool alarms are important parts of a necessary multi-layered approach to drowning prevention. However, traditional lines of defense break down, and the over 4,000 drowning deaths per year bear a grim testament to the fact that traditional approaches are missing a key component: the child. ISR’s core conviction is that the child is the most important part of a drowning prevention strategy and our over 500,000 ISR graduates and over 1,000 documented survival stories are proof that children can save themselves.

Welcome to swim safety

Join experienced swim instructor Brad Hurvitz for ISR (Infant Swimming Resource) Self-Rescue® lessons that will keep your infant, toddler, or younger child safe in the water.

Even if they’ve never been in the water before, your child, even if still a baby, will quickly feel confident and start having fun in the water. Most importantly, your child will learn the aquatic skills to stay safe for life.

Bring your child, aged 6 months to six years, for fully personalized, one-on-one lessons with Brad. Your child will work hard in the 10 minute lesson. The consistency of lessons will allow your kiddo to make small adjustments to build toward our shared goals of a swim-float-swim back to the wall. Or a roll and float for babies. Lessons happen Monday through Friday, for 10 minutes each day for an average of 6 weeks.


What our clients say about us

Valentina Veloz Blanco
Brad provided an exceptional swim lesson experience for my daughter. His professionalism was evident from start to finish, making us feel completely at ease around the pool. Thanks to his expertise and attention to safety, we now have full confidence in our daughter's swimming abilities. Additionally, after just two days, she was having so much fun, eagerly looking forward to each class. We highly recommend Brad's lessons to anyone looking for top-notch instruction in a safe and supportive environment."

Brad is the absolute best instructor for kiddos. My almost 2 year old son is super strong both physical and just plain out strong willed like most toddlers. He started off just not confident in the water and would cause a big fuss but week after week watching his progression was nothing short of amazing, and it really was all thanks to Brads patience and incredible attentiveness. From the first day you just know Brad knows exactly what he’s doing with all kids and more importantly he truly loves his work. He established a true bond with my son and made sure he felt secure and it really reflected every day. My son went from flailing and screaming in the pool to absolute confidence and happiness in his abilities to now SWIM! I can’t say enough about how truly caring Brad is for his students and overall just a great person to have around your kids. I will refer him to everyone I know with kids his work is so important and we are so grateful.

Brad is amazing. Our son went from very scared near water to enjoy swimming in 2 sessions. Brad made our son feel comfortable and he was really patient. The sessions are short 10 mins, which works great
Kirsten Bruner
We had a remarkable experience with Brad. I was hesitant to try ISR with my older children, but really wish I would have gone the ISR route. My daughter adjusted to the swim lessons within a couple days and after that, she really took to it and learned how to get to her back to float and get to the wall. She loves the water now! Brad's techniques work. He is kind and knowledgeable. Water safety is important. We're so thankful we found him.

Highly recommend! Coach Brad was an amazing teacher to our two year old! The first two days were rough. Something clicked after that and our little guy transformed into a swimmer. It was amazing to watch! He was genuinely excited for every lesson. We finished lessons a month ago and he’s still asking about Coach Brad! Worth the money!
Daleanna Miller
Our 18 month old loves the water! We love this but it also concerned us due to how dangerous it can be. We found Coach Brad, My Baby Swims, through all of the positive reviews and he delivered 100%. He takes a serious and fun approach to ensuring each child learns the skills needed to self-rescue. He’s transparent about the process and works with the comfort level of both the child and parents. Our son has progressed in a way we never knew was possible for his age. He’s confident in the water and has adapted the skills Coach Brad teaches to get himself to a safe place when needed. HIGHLY recommend! Reach out in advance and get on the list.

Coach Brad was an amazing teacher for our two-year-old twins! From day one he helped them to feel comfortable and confident in the water and we were amazed at how quickly their swimming skills improved! We could not recommend Coach Brad more highly. Do it, it’s worth it!

Ben is a really professional coach and an amazing, kind person. Very friendly with the little ones and if a kid has a rough night, a little cold or just a bit off, he shapes the lesson based on the kid's actual wellbeing. My son learned a lot, it was wonderful to watch how much he was able to achieve in such a short time. He was always looking forward to the lessons, had a great time. I am very glad we choose to work with Ben.
Melissa Marquez
Brad is the best swim instructor! My 1 year old daughter is now floating thanks to him. He makes each lesson easy on both parents and baby. 100% would recommend him to any parent wanting to provide the resources for your baby to survive in water. We will be back again. Thank you, Brad!
