Because of Logan exists to honor the life of Logan, through swim safety awareness, education, training and to support families who have endured a loss through childhood drowning. In order to fulfil our mission, we encourage Infant Swim Resource (ISR) Self-Rescue® technique swim lessons. It is our mission to help families who can’t afford these lessons by granting scholarships for those who qualify all across the United States.
Scholarships are reserved for families who truly cannot afford lessons. Qualifying families will be responsible for the registration fee due upon enrollment. This fee will be reimbursed to the family upon successful completion of the program. Each family will be asked to commit to a financial contribution toward the lessons. This amount will depend on your individual financial situation.
ISR lessons begin with a 6-week program requiring a 10-minute time commitment daily (Monday – Friday) for the entire duration of the 6 weeks. We ask that before you fill out the application below you are ready and able to dedicate the time to classes. Failure to attend classes will result in the loss of your scholarship.
Your application must be complete, including all required documentation, in order for us to review your request.
We ask that if you have not spoken with your local ISR instructor that you first visit the website www.infantswim.com and find the closest instructor that can accommodate your schedule.
*PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU MUST LET THE ISR INSTRUCTOR IN YOUR AREA KNOW THAT YOU ARE APPLYING FOR THE SCHOLARSHIP BEFORE SUBMITTING THE APPLICATION. We offer scholarships across the United States*
Below are some of the wonderful families Logan has blessed. Not all families are listed below, as they have chosen to stay anonymous.
Hello… We are the Derksen-Shafer Family. We are a blended family from New Port Richey, FL. Dan and I have been married for almost 4 years. Noah (11), Bella (9) and Maci (5) are from my previous marriage, which ended abruptly with the loss of their father to a boating accident. Rogan (3) is our last child and a very special one. We had quite an eventful first year, in and out of the hospital with him but thankfully he is doing much better now. Rogan has a couple of health and developmental delays. He has Speech Apraxia, a bleeding disorder and Hemiplegia. The left side of his body does not work as well as the right side and this was caused by Hydrocephalus when he was born. We have a pool at our home and have always wondered what swimming/water safety would look like for Rogan. With the help of the Because of Logan scholarship and the ISR lessons, we will soon have more knowledge and peace of mind when around water activities. Thank you and we are blessed that Logan’s legacy gets to play a part in our life!
Hello, we are the Elias family. Chris and I have been married for almost 14 years and we have 4 beautiful children, Colton (12), Cohen (, Cooper (4) and Addilyn (22 months). Water safety has always been a concern for me, however after 2 friend’s devastatingly lost their babies due to drowning I learned that drowning could happen to anyone. I learned a minute is all it takes. Anytime we are near water, I experience extreme anxiety, sometimes debilitating. For that reason, we often don’t attend water events. My husband and I have desired to do the ISR training with our young children for peace of mind. With the scholarship from Because of Logan, that is now possible!! I’m overjoyed that Logan’s legacy is the reason my children will receive the gift of water safety.
23 years ago when my little sister was just 3 she was found floating in the pool on her back. No one even knew she was missing. One of my parents happened to walk outside to put something away and saw her. Ever since that day, I was a teenager at the time, I knew the importance of swim lessons and decided I would have all my kids have them.
After our first son turned 6 months I signed him up for lessons at a near by pool. After 6 months of weekly visits all he could do was blow bubbles in the water. Then we tried the community summer program and he still couldn’t float. I moved him to another local swim school that was highly suggested but they focused on teaching him the strokes of swimming. My son was now two and I wasn’t confident with his ability to float and save himself after all our lessons.
Then I heard about ISR. It was a game changer!
Within weeks my son could float all on his own. At first I was worried about the expense of the ISR lessons. But then I calculated all the money we spent over the 6 months at one of the previous swim schools and compared that to the 6 weeks of ISR. Turns out, the cost was about the same. Since then all of my kids have taken ISR. I still stay very vigilant whenever we are around water, but it’s a comfort to know if something were to happen they have the skills to give them the best chance to save their lives. I recommend ISR to everyone who is looking for swim lessons.
