Decatur’s Quest Aquatics is a USA Swimming team that began January 2009 with 18 members and has now grown to over 40 members. Swimming is a lifelong sport that teaches many life lessons. Some of the life lessons learned in swimming are courage, discipline, diligence and personal responsibility. Swimming is safe, with less risk of injury than most other activities and it promotes a clean, healthy lifestyle. Quest Aquatics competes in many local competitions within the Metroplex and have traveled to Oklahoma for swim meets. The swimmers compete against other swimmers that are the same age and ability classification until they post faster times and qualify to move to the higher ranks. Most swimmers swim in approximately 1 meet per month. Many QA parents feel that their child’s self confidence and fitness levels have dramatically increased since joining Quest. Each member of Quest is recognized for their accomplishments and improvements. Quest Aquatics coaches are all ASCA certified and trained. Swimmers of all ages remember three things about their swimming experience: fun, friends and excellence. Swimming is one of the most beneficial sports. Swimmers and their parents [as club and meet officials] can participate in USA Swimming programs together as a family.
Tryouts for Quest Aquatics are held at the Fit N Wise pool every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month at 6:15 pm, or contact Coach Nancy Wendell 940-626-2708
