STEP 1 : Fill Out Form below to be on Tracy’s wait-list for next available session time. Connect w/Tracy on FB for announcements on sessions. Announcements of upcoming sessions will first be on Facebook. Those on my waitlist (enrollment filled out) will receive the link to my calendar first in order recieved.
STEP 2: Confirm lesson time on Tracy’s calendar and pay HALF of your total lesson fees when more than 2 weeks prior to session start date via Cash App ($tracyd33) to hold your spot in that designated session. (Let Tracy know if you’d like to pay through Zelle or with cash.) This fee confirms your spot in that session. Your 2nd payment of the remaining half is due 14 days before lessons begin. If it is less than 2 weeks before starting lessons, you’ll need to pay the entire lesson tuition in full before starting the initial training. Thank you! **Please note that if you do not pay or have arrangements to pay for your slot within 48 hrs of scheduling, your slot will go to the next person on the waitlist.
Refresher students, will need to pay HALF of total lessons fees to confirm your spot more than 2 weeks out from the session start date and your 2nd half 2 weeks prior to the start date. (For example: If you are doing 2 weeks, $125 will be due to confirm your spot unless it’s less than 2 weeks to session start date, If your child will only need 1 week, $125 will be due to confirm your spot.) If you have any remaining lessons from the initial training those lessons can be deducted.
**Please do not pay unless you have a confirmed time on the calendar with Tracy.
STEP 3: Complete ISR National Registration 2-4 weeks before session begins. (1 time fee for new students: $105 / Yearly Update for refreshers is $35) Tracy will email or message this link to you when it’s time to register with ISR.
STEP 4: Begin Lessons! Refunds of initial payment to Tracy will ONLY be given for lack of RET clearance when doing the National Registration or when Tracy needs to cancel a session. Any refunds from the ISR national registration will need to be discussed directly with ISR. If you need to cancel for scheduling conflicts, we can look at future sessions to not lose your initial investment.
ATTENDANCE POLICY: Please do not join a session if you have travel plans during the initial 6-7 week or 30-35 day training. If you are not able to commit to the full time frame, please wait until another session where you can. Make up lessons will only be given for instructor cancellations. Please understand you are committing to a daily lesson that likely cannot be filled in your absence. You will need to commit to paying for your time even if you miss. Missed lessons for scheduling conflicts are not made up. A sick day here and there is also not made up. Prolonged illness make up lessons will be determined on a case by case basis and do require MLU with ISR RET and a Dr’s note.
SET YOUR CHILD UP FOR SUCCESS
*No food/drinks for 2 hrs prior to lessons
*Absolutely no apples, peaches or pears during training. I can’t stress this enough. This is SO important to making floating easier! There are other “gassy” foods to avoid as well but these are the most important. Please note that most food pouches are apple based and have negative effects on babies learning to float.
*Be positive and cheer your child on from the deck. When you show confidence in them, they’ll feel more confident. Please avoid making negative faces, sounds or gestures. If you can’t keep yourself upbeat, wear sunglasses and smile with your poker face or walk away for a few mins so as to not affect your child’s lesson negatively. I will at times ask parents to go around the corner and watch where the student can’t see them. Often times this helps take the child’s attention away from the parents and toward the lesson.
WARNING: Avoid using flotation devices for recreational swimming times. The only times you should use life jackets is when you are around lakes, rivers, ponds and the ocean. KNOW that if you choose ISR for your child and then put them back in puddle jumpers or flotation devices for recreational swimming, you are directly countering what they are learning in lessons. It is not worth investing in ISR if you continue their use for recreational swimming. In the event you choose the use of these devices during or after lessons, please know the interference they cause can result in the break down of their self rescue skills due to the vertical posture these devices create. The vertical position is the drowning position. Please do not foster this position in your child and expect to keep them safe around water. Especially, if they find themselves in the water alone.
There is no such thing as drown-proofed, watch your children around water at all times.
PRICING: Initial Training: 6 weeks for both Swimmers and Floaters. If your child does not need to use the full six weeks for their initial training, the remaining lessons can be applied to any type of follow up lessons. (Babies coming back for the swim sequence, refreshers or maintenance lessons.) Please remember, missed lessons are not applied to later sessions with the exceptions of what is stated in my attendance policy above.
$750 due before lessons begin, see Step 2 above for payment details.
Refreshers 2-3 Wks Yearly: Typically 4 yr olds and older will need 2 weeks, 3 yr olds and under typically need 3 weeks.
$125 / week Minimum of 2 weeks due to confirm refresher spot for typical refreshers.
Older children may only need 1 refresher week. Or they may be ready to move on to more stroke lessons with Mrs. Diane or Mrs. Holly, please inquire!
Maintenance Lessons 1-2 times per month (when available)
$25 / lesson
