Welcome To Baby Shark Swim School

Give your child the competence, confidence, and skills of aquatic safety.

Our goal is not only to teach children to swim, but to help them develop an appreciation for the water with Infant Swimming Resource’s Self-Rescue® program. Our swim school has a variety of programs beyond ISR’s Self Rescue program to meet your child’s needs.

Through a bright and positive learning environment, children are encouraged to progress at an individual pace. Our Nationally Certified ISR Instructor, Sheryl Rothe, is caring and patient. We endeavor to meet the needs of all students while promoting overall confidence and self-esteem.

Who We Are

“As a parent of four children who are competitive swimmers, Sheryl believes in the importance of teaching children at a young age about water safety, and creating skilled and capable swimmers.”
As a Nationally Certified ISR Instructor, Sheryl Rothe, has been teaching ISR lessons for 17 years and has several clients who are state championship swimmers. She focuses on teaching babies to be safe in the water, having the right body posture for all swimming strokes, and preparing the child to have all the necessary skills to be an effective member on a swim team.
She provides lessons at an indoor year-round facility as well as other outdoor facilities. Each child is taught in a one on one setting, where children can learn while enjoying the experience at the same time. She offers individual lesson plans tailored to meet each child’s needs no matter the child’s swim level.

Our Programs

We provide Infant Swimming Resource (ISR) lessons by a Nationally Certified ISR Instructor to babies and toddlers between 6 months and 6 years old.After completing the ISR program, children will learn how to safely have fun in the water through maintenance lessons (jumping in, diving, etc).

Additionally, ISR provides the proper foundation required in becoming a competitive swimmer.  Our swim school also offers Swim Team Prep Lessons for children who desire to pursue the sport of swimming.

The ISR method has become recognized by many coaches for providing the proper body posture to create the beginning of the proper stroke technique.

The Focus Is Survival

In the U.S., drowning is the leading cause of death for infants and young children under the age of four.  Drowning is preventable.

Give your child an extra measure of protection with aquatic survival instruction from Infant Swimming Resource (ISR).

When it comes to water-safety and skills, ISR is the safest provider of swimming lessons for babies and toddlers between 6 months and 6 years old. ISR is nationally recognized for going beyond traditional swim instruction, teaching children the behaviorally based Self-Rescue™ techniques, such that they would be able to survive in the water in an emergency.

ISR was developed over 50 years ago and is the only drowning prevention strategy that has earned a 100% safety record.  Since 1966, ISR has trained more than 8,000,000 children.  To date, ISR has over 800 documented cases of children using ISR techniques to save themselves from drowning.  


  • I will gently introduce your child to the water.  
  • Every child learns at his or her own pace, so I will work with your child to guide him or her through the lesson process to build a level of trust and comfort in the water.  
  • I will always accompany your child in the water.
  • These safe and effective lessons are customized to your child and taught one on one. 
  • We do not offer group lessons. Your child’s lesson experience will be unique, and to provide the safest possible lesson, my attention will be focused on only your child throughout the lesson period.
  • After completing the initial training your child will learn how to use their acquired skills to safely explore the water with fun activities such as diving for rings, stroke instruction, and so on.
