A Guardian’s Guide to Free Child Accounts on Zwift [November 2021]

Do you have a child interested in cycling or running on Zwift? If so, Zwift offers free accounts for children between the ages of 5-15 years old!

In order to set up an account for your child, you must visit www.zwift.com/kids and submit a consent form allowing your child to access the platform. While we do not require your child’s legal name on the form submission, please keep in mind all other information must be valid.

Once we receive the form, one of our agents will create the account for your child and respond with instructions on how to access the new account. Please be sure to update your child’s height and weight when first accessing the account via the account profile web page, to ensure they have the best riding experience.

  • If your child is a new Zwifter, the kids account benefits will start once their trial is up. Benefits and a consent form need to be renewed annually.

  • If your child already has a preexisting account with Zwift, we will still need a consent form submitted annually to allow the child to ride/run on Zwift. Please submit a consent form and an agent will follow up once the account set-up is complete.

Please refrain from posting any details pertaining to your child’s account in the thread below. This process is handled offline to guard your family’s privacy.

Best Practices

As your child engages with our community, we encourage you to monitor their activity within Zwift and promote best Internet practices.

If you don’t already have a Zwift account for yourself as a parent/guardian - create one. You won’t need to set up a paid membership as the purpose of this account is to monitor your child’s activity in Zwift.

Note: With the exception of receiving messages from group ride leaders, our in-game chat feature is disabled for accounts associated with users under 13 years of age.
