CrossFit Affiliates can Help Too!

Why Should I Help?

Drowning is the leading cause of death for infants and young children between the ages of 1-4 (U.S Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2007)
A swimming pool is 14 times more likely than a motor vehicle to be involved in the death of a child age 4 and under. (Orange County California Fire Authority)
Of all preschoolers who drown, 70 percent are in the care of one or both parents at the time of the drowning and 75 percent are missing from sight for five minutes or less. (Orange County, CA, Fire Authority)
Children under one year most often drown in bathtubs, buckets, or toilets. Among children ages 1 to 4 years, most drownings occur in residential swimming pools. (Where children drown, 1995, Pediatrics 2001;108(1):85–9)

Become Informed:

Spread the word:

  • Like us on Facebook and share our blog stories
  • Display posters and brochures at your gym
  • Encourage your CrossFit Kids to sign up for ISR lessons
  • Continue to visit www.infantswim.com/crossfitkids to keep updated with information and events

Financial Contributions: You, your affiliate, and/or your members can sponsor students or make a donation.

  • ISR lessons are valued at $700, and monetary donations in any amount are welcomed and greatly appreciated. All donations will go directly to students to cover lesson fees.
  • Leverage your business relationships to encourage full sponsorship of an ISR-CrossFit Kids Instructor

Locations:

  • We are always looking for new pool locations to teach lessons. Please let us know if you have a pool or have a connection to someone who could assist us with securing a new location.  ISR lessons only require a small amount of pool space, and oftentimes, a backyard pool works perfectly!

Become an Instructor: ISR's staff is available and excited to speak with any CrossFit Trainers or affiliates that are interested in becoming an ISR Instructor.
