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!
 
   
A HUGE THANK YOU!!
 
Thank You to all the volunteers (over 350!) that worked the 2018 TYR Pro Swim Series Meet at Georgia Tech.  We could not pull off such high-profile meets as these without the great support from our families.  
 
A special thanks goes to Julie Ford and Heather Watkins, our Volunteer Coordinators for the meet.  They spent countless hours recruiting and organizing everyone.  Thanks also to Chris Bauer who was at GT for every hour of the meet ... helping out where he could.  And to Michael Davis and his staff for the delicious hospitality.  We realize many of you worked multiple shifts and thank you for that. Our organization, hospitality and professionalism were evident to all ... as we heard many times throughout the meet!
 
 
 
CONGRATULATIONS!
Vica Beelner sets FIRST-EVER American Record
 
 
 
 
At the 2018 Southern Premier Meet in Nashville earlier this month, Dynamo's Vica Beelner (16) set a NEW American record by an SM5 athlete in the 400IM with a time of 9:50.44.  Vica is believed to be the first American female to complete in a sanctioned 400IM - quite a grueling race!  
 
And, here's something else you may not know:  when Vica was 12 years old she competed at the 2013 Dwarf Games in both swimming AND table tennis!  Here's the full article published in Swim Swam earlier this month.  
 
Way to go Vica!!

Business Sponsorship Committee
 
   
 
We are looking for club members what would be willing to lead a Sponsorship Committee. 
The intent is to find businesses, ideally community-focused, that would be willing to be Meet Sponsors and Event Sponsors.  A sponsor packet is already set up with different levels. We need go-getters with connections (or a willingness to make new connections).

Mike Cotter at mike@dynamoswimclub.com.

SCHOLASTIC 
ALL-AMERICAN
 
USA Swimming has released the 2017-2018 Scholastic All America qualifying cuts.  **9th graders are now eligible to apply.**  
 
The qualifying period runs between August 16, 2017 and August 15, 2018.  
 
Athletes must also have a 3.5 grade point average or higher for the current academic year.   
 
Details on qualifying times can be found here.  You will need to create an account at www.usaswimming.org and then log in to view the application process and details.  
 
This is one of the ways USA Swimming recognizes excellence both in the pool and in the classroom.
  
 
SPORTS DRINKS
VS.
ENERGY DRINKS
 
Sometimes it can be difficult to know the difference between Sports Drinks and Energy Drinks.  Even the Food and Drug Administration does not distinguish between them in it's classification system. Educate yourself and study nutrition labels.  
 
Energy Drinks can contain high levels of sugar and caffeine, both of which can have negative effects on an athlete's hydration and training.  
 
To stay in peak condition, make sure you are eating a well-balanced diet, hydrate primarily with water or an occasional sports drink, and get plenty of rest.
