My name is Tiffany Rains and I have been a certified ISR Instructor since October 2009. I have been married to my husband Bill for over 10 years and have lived in Edmond my entire life. I am excited to be a part of ISR and sharing it with my community. As a mother of three, two boys and a daughter, I know there is no greater joy than that of being a parent. I am always brought to tears when I hear of a child that has drowned. I cannot imagine a greater pain than the loss a child.

A few years ago, a couple of days before Christmas, I watched in horror with my family as an EMSA crew tried desperately to revive our neighbor‘s two year old grandson. He was there visiting and had fallen in their four foot wading pool. My daughter, at the time, was close to the same age as the little boy. That night I could not imagine what that family must be going through; I have never felt more helpless.

A few years later, a friend told me about ISR and recommended I look into becoming an Instructor. At the time, Brandi Ylla was the only instructor for the whole state of Oklahoma, a state that has more miles of shoreline than Florida, California or Texas. I knew this was something I must do. I feel honored to be a part of the awesome organization of ISR, which has provided me with a career that has such an incredible purpose like that of saving the life of a child.

Tiffany Rains
Certified ISR Instructor

In the cooler months (Sept - Oct), and (March through May), I teach at an indoor heated pool on E. 2nd street close to I-35 between the hours of 8-11. March- the middle of April, and Sept - the middle of October I will teach an additional class time in the afternoon from 4-6.

During the summer (June-the end of August) I offer lessons at an outdoor private residence at 2nd and Coltrane in Edmond, between the hours of 8-11:30 a.m.

Ready to Begin Lessons or have questions? Email me at with your desired location and lesson time and I will email you information about registering your child. I look forward to working with you and your little ones!

Financial Assistance:
Financial Assistance is available to those who qualify. ISR’s goal is to prevent drowning and through our ISR Community of Caring, we offer lesson fee scholarships to families in need, to ensure that no child is prevented from enrolling in ISR Lessons due to financial need. Funds are set aside by ISR on an annual basis for families in need to apply for financial assistance to cover a portion of the cost of program participation.

You can help too! Please visit the Infant Swimming Resource SEAL STORE to purchase ISR apparel and merchandise. Portions of the proceeds from sales on the Seal Store will go to our Community of Caring Scholarship Program, which assists under privileged families in providing their children the potentially lifesaving skills learned in ISR lessons. Thank you for your support!

Refresher Classes:
Refresher lessons are extremely important in continuing and maintaining your child's ISR Self-Rescue™ skill development. Children grow and develop rapidly from infants to toddlers and young children. This development process represents improved strength, coordination, and a more finely tuned cognitive ability. In accordance with this growth, children enrolled in ISR return periodically to participate in Refresher Lessons.

Maintenance Lessons:
Upon completion of your child's initial lessons or refresher lessons, maintenance lessons are recommended to maintain your child's skills. Maintenance lessons are sold in packages of four (4) lessons at $40.00 per package. Please ask me for more details.
