q. HOW DOES TAPS COORDINATE AND ASSIGN GROUPS?

TAPS allows parents to choose their own group based on their schedule and location. We spend a few years trying do this for you - but it turns out that you’re really awesome at choosing groups that you want to be in! Groups are organized and added to the calendar based on our volunteer capacity and the information we have on hand from our pre-registration list.

When you register, you’ll choose: your start date, region, and program fee.

We sometimes delay the start date of a group due to low attendance numbers. Groups with fewer than 5 members tend to be less fulfilling than groups with between 5 and 10 members. If this happens, we’ll let you know via email or text. You can learn more about our typical start dates here.

About a week before your group starts,  your group leader will send you an introduction with information for your first meeting and then your group will start!
