Vision Statement: To pursue excellence in competitive swimming and to be the model 18 & Under club in all operations in the USA, and therefore the world!
Congratulations to Addie Farrington (SR1 Alph) and Ian Grum (SR1 Cham) on being selected for the 2017 National Select Camp!  They are joining 96 other speedy 14-16 year-olds who will spend four days at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs.  Coach Ian Murray was also selected as the head coach of the women's camp.  The women's camp will be held from October 19 - 22, with the men's camp following October 26 - 29.
USA Swimming invites the top three swimmers nationwide in every event based on times from September 1st, 2016-August 31st, 2017.  An additional six women and six men are added to the roster based on individual IMX Power Point scores. 
Swimmers and invited coaches will attend talks with industry professionals. Topics for swimmers include drug and supplement education, practical psychological training skills and race strategy, while coaches might learn about bio-mechanical tools or video analysis.
Athletes:  Please bring your swim bags and backpacks out of the locker rooms during practice and place on the pool deck (out of major walk-ways).  Unfortunately, there have been some recent incidents of someone going through swimmer's bags while they are practicing. 
Stroke & Turn Officials Training 
Wednesday, October 18th  
7:00pm - 9:30pm
(attend from the comfort of your own home)
Please join Clarice Wasmuth, Dynamo parent and USA Trainer, as she goes over USA Officials, how to become one, and the rules to all four strokes. This web based, interactive, online S & T Officials Class is great way for individuals to learn the rules of USA swimming.  Clarice will also cover the benefits and next steps in becoming a USA S & T Official (Wet Official).  It's a wonderful way to give back to a sport and team that gives all our children lifelong skills both in and out of the water.
For questions or to RSVP for the training, contact Clarice Wasmuth:
