THE SWIMQUEST NETWORK
Your SwimQuest journey doesn’t stop when you go home. We pride ourselves in keeping in touch with our guests; following and supporting their challenges and adventures. We built the SwimQuest Skills Network in order to celebrate and share the swimming expertise we have built up over the years. The SwimQuest Network is run in association with our incredible guest coaches, partners, and often guests who have blown us away with impressive improvements, achievements and challenges. Whether or not you have been on a SwimQuest holiday, you are very welcome to join one of our seminars or sessions, use our swim set suggestions, or ask us for any swimming related help or advice. If we can’t help, we will point you in the direction of someone who can!
We now provide year-round skills workshops, remote coaching and bespoke training plans. At the moment many of our sessions are based in London, however if you would like us to bring a SwimQuest Seminar or Skills session to you and your club, please just ask – we’d be happy to help.
Skills sessions are usually technique based, and run in conjunction with one of our fantastic guest coaches. Each session consists of a land based talk, followed by a pool session, with time to catch up socially afterwards. We usually pick one element of swimming to focus on – e.g. the catch, recovery, hand and head position – etc. Click here to find out about our upcoming skills sessions.
Throughout the year we run a number of free-to-attend SwimQuest Seminars, bringing together insights from fascinating individuals and experts. Our talks are designed to inform and inspire. Find out about the psychology of swimming from Swim England’s sports psychologist, listen to Freda Streeter MBE’s thoughts on how to approach channel swimming, find out what it is like to row the Atlantic or swim in the Arctic Circle …

Many guests ask us how they should be training when they visit the pool. If you are serious about improving your swimming fitness and speed, working to ‘swim sets’ is an excellent idea. Rather than simply visiting the pool and swimming endless lengths, sets help you to structure your training, add variety, and monitor your progress.
A “swim set” is a structured plan for your pool session, which usually involves a warm up, technique set, main set and cool down.
We have teamed up with some of our guides and coaches to provide you with free varied, printable sessions. We will be releasing one new set every Monday to give you some much needed #mondaymotivation! Click here to download your free sets.
