An AAU & USA Diving Affiliated Program

Team vs. Lessons…

what's the difference?

ZAP Lesson Divers:

  • are interested in learning the basics of the sport of diving in a safe and fun environment
  • practice with the Team! This enhances their experience as the team divers provide in-house “role models” for them to learn from and emulate 
  • are interested in diving on a monthly basis
  • support others’ development with a positive attitude
  • respect their team, pool environment, and coaches
  • are not expected to compete in competitions, but are always encouraged to dive in novice events at our home/away meets based on readiness and interest
  • may be invited to join the team following a series of lessons and additional considerations by the coach, diver, and parents

ZAP Team Divers:

  • have been placed on the team by invitation only
  • may attend unlimited practices within the month
  • strive to excel individually but progress collectively
  • commit their time and energy though June/ or (if they qualify) after July Championships/ summer clinic
  • compete in all meets to which they are invited based on readiness
  • commit to the team goals and support the team effort at home and away meets
  • compete for themselves and for the team
  • support each other in practices and meets and encourage our up-and-coming lesson divers
  • maintain a positive attitude and exemplary sportsmanship with one another and with fellow divers in various programs during practice and competitions; 
  • represent themselves and their team, families, communities, and schools with class, respect, and sportsmanlike conduct at all times.
