Joining ZAP is a very simple process. Once you have looked through our website and made sure our philosophy matches yours, you just need to do the following:

Step 1) Get evaluated by one of our coaches

Step 2) Complete the ZAP online registration

What is the minimum requirement to schedule an evaluation? At the very least, to be in any of our programs other than lessons, swimmers need to be able swim 25 yards of freestyle and backstroke without assistance from a coach, parent/caregiver, sibling or the wall. The swimmer must also be able to separate from the parent/caregiver without issue and take direction independently. Their skill set will determine which program is best suited for them.

How long will the evaluation last? Typically, the evaluation will last anywhere from 10-20 minutes, depending on what the swimmer knows. We also like to take a few minutes after the evaluation to talk with the parent(s) and answer any initial questions you may have.
