We are dedicated to TEACHING the art of swimming and PERFECTING the game of racing!!

SENIOR - Senior swimming is the pursuit of the highest competitive excellence in the world of swimming and the desire to be the best that you can be. The primary consideration for moving into our senior program should be the "readiness" of the individual. They should be very goal oriented, willing to risk failure, mature enough to have sportsmanlike perspective, and have the desire to "go the distance".

We offer three SENIOR training groups: Senior 1, Senior 2, and Senior 3.

The primary coaches for the Senior groups are Chad Onken and John Smithson.

Senior 1 trains at our Evergreen facility. This group provides the athlete a transition and adaption period as they jump from age group swimming to senior swimming. Increased training levels are a hallmark of senior swimming. Athletes are also pushed out of their comfort zone a bit more with regards to dryland training.

Senior 1 practice schedule: 6 practices are recommended per week

Monday - Friday: 4:45 am - 6:45 am

Tuesday/Thursday: 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Saturday: 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Dryland - Tuesday/Thursday 5:45 pm - 6:45 pm, Saturday 7:50 am - 8:50 am

***Senior 1 athletes will NOT double; multiple practice times are offered to provide more flexibility.

Senior 2 also trains at our Evergreen facility. This group involves the swimmer who is deciding as to whether to enter into the process of a "pathway to excellence" in one's swimming experience. There is a search for competition that provides significant challenges, both physically and psychologically.

Senior 2 practice schedule: 7-8 practices are recommended per week

Monday - Friday: 4:45 am - 6:45 am

Tuesday/Thursday: 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Saturday: 9:00 am - 11:00 am

Dryland - Tuesday/Thursday 5:45 pm - 6:45 pm, Saturday 7:50 am - 8:50 am

***Senior 2 athletes are given the opportunity to double; multiple practice times are offered to provide more flexibility.

Senior 3 trains at both our Deer Run and Evergreen facility. This group is the highest training group offered at Quest. Swimmers in this group are committed to performance at the highest potential levels in USA Swimming - in training, in meets, and in lifestyle.
