The Little Quails Program

Registration for The Little Quails Program is now open! Register through the links above.

Little Quails is a pre-swim team developmental program for swimmers 3-5 years old working on water adjustment and beginner swimmer skills. The Columbia Swim League does not allow 3 year olds to participate in the meets so all 3 year olds will participate with Little Quails. Four and 5 year olds will be screened to determine if they should participate with the 6 and under swim team practice or begin with the Little Quails pre-swim team program.

Little Quails DO NOT participate in swim meets, but 4 and 5 year old Little Quails may be moved up to the 6 and under practice if their progress warrants. Four and 5 year old swimmers comfortable putting their faces in the water for 5 or more seconds, blowing bubbles and performing front and back floats will be placed in the 6 and under swim team practice. Swimmers ages 4 to 6 participate in swim meets as soon as they can swim a length of the pool independently. 

Meet the Coaches

Cindy Sommers, along with her assistant coaches, teach new swimmers the basics and help advanced swimmers improve their competitive strokes.

Head Coach Manager Cindy Sommers holds the record for the longest tenure of any active swim coach in the Columbia City League. She has coached the Quail Valley team since 2001. She is currently the Coach of the Irmo High School Swim Team and also coached the girls’ and boys’ varsity swim teams at Dutch Fork High School for seven years.
Coach Cindy began swimming on a Columbia Swim League swim team when she was 9 years old and continued to compete in the league through the age of eighteen. She also branched out into year round swimming at the age of eleven, eventually earning a spot on the College of Charleston swim team. Her favorite stroke is butterfly.
When not coaching, she loves to teach math, read, kayak, whitewater raft, trail bike ride, complete projects around the house, garden and snuggle with her three dogs and four cats.
