    The goal of the Swim Academy is to extend swimming skills and water safety knowledge of middle school students, as well as introduce them to further opportunities in aquatics, such as participating on the city/school swim and water polo teams, lifeguarding and swimming instruction or swimming for fitness.  The Middle School Swim Academy is an after school program with all eight Irving ISD middle schools currently participating.

    Make a Splash Logo Both Swim Safe and the Middle School Swim Academy are part of the Make a Splash Program. The USA Swimming Foundation’s Make a Splash initiative is a national child-focused water safety campaign, which aims to provide the opportunity for every child in America to learn to swim. Through Make a Splash, the USA Swimming Foundation partners with learn-to-swim providers and water safety advocates across the country to provide swimming lessons and educate children and their families on the importance of learning how to swim. The USA Swimming Foundation has invested millions of dollars to provide grants to qualified Local Partner learn-to-swim programs, to spread national awareness, and to bring together strategic partners to end drowning.  To date, more than 3.4 million children have received the lifesaving gift of swim lessons through the USA Swimming Foundation Make a Splash Local Partner network, comprised of more than 725 qualified lesson providers across the nation.
