The Quest Swim School provides a variety of different offerings for each type of swimmer, regardless of age and/or ability. Please see below for a brief description of the different levels and the group structure within the Quest Swim School:



Ages listed are approximate.


Beginner Q1 and Beginner Q1 Parent/Child:  ages 2 – 5

My child is new to lessons and is not comfortable putting his/her face in.

All 2 year olds belong in Q1, Q1 P/C or Q2.


Beginner Q2:  ages 2 – 7

My child can put his/her face in the water and is not afraid to try a back float or front float with assistance.

My child needs to learn to do a front and/or back float.

All 2 year olds belong in Q1, Q1 P/C or Q2.


Beginner Q3:  ages 3 – 9

My child can float on his/her back independently but cannot swim independently, even a short distance.


Novice Q4:  ages 3 – 10

My child can swim 10 – 15 feet independently on the back and getting breaths on the front but cannot make the length of a 25 yard pool.


Novice Q5:  ages 3 – 10

My child can paddle the length of a 25 yard pool and roll front to back, blowing bubbles and getting breaths rhythmically.


Novice Q6:  ages 3 – 10

My child can swim freestyle and backstroke but he/she needs work on balance, breathing, technique and/or endurance.


Intermediate 1:  ages 5 - 11

My child can swim 25 yards freestyle and backstroke but cannot swim breaststroke or butterfly. He/she needs to learn a legal breaststroke and fundamental butterfly.


Intermediate 2:  ages 5 – 12

My child can swim freestyle and backstroke, has a legal breaststroke kick and can do the fundamental movements for butterfly, but cannot swim a length of breaststroke or butterfly legally.

Intermediate 3: ages 5 - 12

My child can swim all 4 strokes legally for a 25 yard distance. My swimmer needs to learn flip turns, the breaststroke underwater sequence and work on racing and relay starts. This level will best prepare my swimmer for Stroke School.


Stroke School:  ages 8 & under, ages 9 - 12,  and ages 13 & up

My child can swim freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly legally for 25 yards but wants to improve with the help of Quest coaches and instructors. We use underwater video analysis and are in the pool with the students much of the clinic, teaching proper stroke technique and racing strategies.This is the last step of progression before we encourage them to get evaluated for the year-round competitive Quest Swimming team. Stroke School prepares swimmers to be race-ready for Quest, High School Swimming and Summer League!!!
