For competitive team questions

Queens Aquatic Club, QNS, is an organization that can meet any swimmers needs. Our philosophy is technique, technique, technique! That is carried from our first level in swim school through the highest level of the competitive team. There is no need to swim a lap unless it is perfect. Queens Aquatic Club has two arms and will be able to accommodate you no matter what swim experience you are looking for.

 

First, is our QAC Swim School. The goal of the school is to instill a love of swimming that will stay with the swimmer for life. While promoting safety, health and proper technique.

 

Second, is the competitive team. Queens Aquatic Club will produce the highest level of athlete, competing against the best the sport has to offer. The goal of the competitive team is not only being the best club in Queens, but being recognized as one of the top clubs in the country.
