Zeus Swim Team is committed to making swimming accessible to all youth. As a result, the Norwalk Aquatic Club, which is a 501c3 administered by Zeus parents, will offer a limited number of need-based scholarships each season. The scholarships will be provided based on demonstrated financial need and will cover a percentage (to be determined based on need and availability of funds) of the Swim Team fees, but will not include the Team Registration Fee ($500), the USA Swimming registration fees ($80) or meet fees.



Scholarship swimmers are required to meet minimum practice requirements based upon their level. The swimmers that receive the scholarships will sign a contract stating that they will attend at least 75% of the practices, unless the squad that they register for requires a higher % of practice attendance, then they will follow the squad guidelines. Failure to follow the Connecticut Swimming, Inc. ("CSI") Rules of Conduct, sustained lack of attendance at practices or failure of parents to volunteer when asked are grounds for loss of scholarship.


Application Process:

Please complete one application (link below) per family and provide proof of financial eligibility, such as tax returns, pay stubs, Free/Reduced Lunch acceptance letter for current year or Husky insurance information.

Scholarship applications are confidential and will only be reviewed by the Scholarship Committee to ensure privacy. The fact that a family is receiving financial assistance will not be disclosed except on a need to know basis. Each scholarship is only good for the length of the season. Those wishing to receive a scholarship for the following season must re-apply.


Evaluation Criteria:

The Scholarship Committee will review the applications and make an assessment of eligibility based upon financial need.
