ZAP was founded in October 1999 with the intent of offering the best training and safest place for swimmers to swim and coaches to coach, regardless of swimmer speed, age, background, or goal set. It remains our primary purpose and we are proud to offer the most progressive swim program in the South Bay area of Los Angeles County.


Our carefully structured program affords each swimmer the opportunity to experience personal success and improvement. Our coaching staff has established a plan designed to provide a structured route that each swimmer travels leading to development as a whole person; physically, emotionally, mentally and socially.  Each swimmer has a different plan and at ZAP we empower and encourage all of our swimmers to reach their goals no matter how big or small.


ZAP offers different training groups to accommodate the different ages, abilities, goals and commitments of our swimmers. We offer a non-competitive program for swimmers such as Swim Squad and Jr. Lifeguard Prep classes, as well as group and private lessons.

Our practices are based on sound scientific principles and are geared to the specific goals of each group. Training and learning groups are established using a combination of age, ability and commitment criteria. Each group has a minimum standard that must be met prior to moving into the group
