City Swim Project launched the Team ACHIEVE (Academics Can Help In Emotions, Values and Education).

Team ACHIEVE is designed to support academic achievement, social emotional learning and character-building opportunities for City Swim Project swimmers. City Swim Project has purchased the IXL Interactive Learning education software to support math and ELA learning. IXL Learning software provides:

  • Real-time diagnostics to assess what swimmers know and how to help each swimmer progress academically
  • Comprehensive K-12 math and ELA practice at each swimmer’s own pace through fun and interactive questions, built in support, and motivating awards
  • A personalized feed of practice topics based on each swimmer’s precise academic skill level
  • Up-to-date tracking on each swimmer’s academic progress

The City Swim Project purchased a supply of tablets for swimmers to use on location during tutoring sessions before or after their swim lessons. City Swim Project offers free tutoring on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:45 – 5:30 pm and from 5:30 – 6:15 pm at the William Emslie YMCA for swimmers in grades 1 through 12. If you would like to sign your swimmer up for Team ACHIEVE, please be on the lookout for the Sign-Up Genius. You must sign up each Monday before 5:00 pm for a spot. Please know that the tutoring spots are limited so make sure to be the first to sign-up!
