We are very excited to announce the introduction of Infant Swimming Resource (ISR) program. The program commenced in March 2022 and is led by Lisa Vartanian, a certified ISR Instructor. 

Lisa Vartanian is a devoted educator working in the field since 2000. Before becoming an ISR instructor, Lisa was an ISR parent amazed by the program and wanting her children to acquire the ISR based skills. As a result, she ultimately accepted the opportunity to make a difference in children’s lives through steadfast dedication to the ISR program and its students.  She has taught well over 1,000 students in New Jersey.  In addition, Lisa holds certifications as a Water Safety Instructor through the Red Cross, BLS, First Aid and CPR for Infant/Children/Adult.


As a mother of five, all of her children went through the ISR program. Lisa is a firm believer in the program's importance in a child’s life and swimming development. In her own words, she has stated that, "it is an honor knowing I have the opportunity to enrich the lives of all those I teach. I will always give all my students and their families 100% despite any challenges that may arise. Be it through flexible scheduling, adapting to personality differences, or deciphering the needs of each child to better educate them, no obstacle can deter me in my mission to educate. NOT ONE MORE CHILD DROWNS."

Anyone interested in partaking in this new and exciting program, can register via our group and private lesson registration portal. The Summer 2022 session is currently open for registration.
