The tapouts program costs $ 25 weekly.
Our program is available for youth to join from anywhere over Zoom, and they’re able to meet youth – including others who are home schooled – from all over in a safe and nurturing environment with a trained coach who imparts time-tested wisdom that’s backed by science to youth.
tapouts believes religious beliefs and spiritual practices can be very important for a flourishing life, but our curriculum is agnostic and we do not teach any particular religious beliefs.
tapouts takes a preventative approach, meaning our program is designed to work best for those who have a lower level of need for support. tapouts is committed to ensuring that youth are in pods/groups with other similar youth, and are first and foremost, safe. To that end, our team assesses whether tapouts is a good fit or not for all who come through our gate. In addition, we have support staff with youth and coaches on all meetings to ensure a maximally fun and smooth experience.
More information about the sessions can be requested by contacting the team directly.
You can check the confirmation email sent out by tapouts. Your child will join the sessions each week on the same day and time.
They should try as much as possible to be early. If they are a little late, the coach will inform your child of any crucial information they missed. Your child will still be able to participate for the remainder of the sessions.
Only those who work for tapouts will have access to your child’s information, which is kept in secure, password-protected servers.
Under no circumstances will tapouts share any information collected during the sessions with anyone outside of our immediate team.
The brief survey at the end of each session will entail what your youth thought of the session, and it will give them a chance to provide us with feedback.
