A Tradition of Excellence

Dynamo Swim Club is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that that brings the sport of swimming to individuals of all ages and experience levels. Since the club’s inception in 1964, we’ve grown from a small network of summer league teams to become one of the top ranked age group clubs in USA Swimming. Dynamo swimmers have enjoyed success at every level of competitive swimming from achieving state, regional and national team titles to setting American records and world ranked times.  Our mission is to pursue excellence in competitive swimming and create lifelong athletes.

At the 2021 United States Olympic Team Trials, Gunnar Bentz (200m butterfly) and Jay Litherland (400m individual medley) again qualified to represent Team USA at the Olympic Games in Tokyo. Brooks Curry also qualified for the 4 x 100m freestyle relay, making this the largest group of qualifiers Dynamo has had for a single US squad.

Continuing the mission to provide elite training to all swimmers, Dynamo has become a premiere club in training for paralympic athletes. Swimmer McClain Hermes earned eighth place at the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games and claimed two individual medals, gold and bronze at the 2017 World Para Swimming Championships in Mexico City.  In March 2018, Vica Beelner became the first female American SM5 swimmer to race a sanctioned SCY 400IM. Beelner previously competed at the 2013 World Dwarf Games in both swimming and table tennis.

Most recently, Gia Pergolini broke the S13 World Record in the 100m backstroke en route to qualifying for the 2021 Paralympics in Tokyo.  Pergolini previously won silver in the 100m backstroke at both the 2017 and 2019 World Para Swimming Championships.

Dynamo’s Ripples

In addition to a large 18 and under swim team, Dynamo’s passion for swimming flows to many swimming programs.  Dynamo Swim School offers swim instruction for beginning swimmers at six Atlanta locations. Dynamo Juniors introduces swimmers to the concept of year-round swimming. Dynamo Masters provides year-round competitive swimming for adults while Dynamo Multisport builds triathletes. Other water activities, like Dynamo Water Polo and Dynamo’s recreational and wellness programs are supported by Dynamo facilities. Dynamo Pool Management provides services and staffing to neighborhood, community and country club pools throughout the Atlanta area.

Getting Started                                       
All prospective Dynamo Swim Club athletes must participate in a new swimmer evaluation prior to registering. Please follow the links below to view the evaluation schedule or to contact the appropriate people if you need to schedule a separate evaluation time.  
 
Evaluation Process
Each evaluation typically includes the athlete swimming a lap of one or more of the four competitive strokes and receiving comments on technique from the evaluator.  For advanced swimmers, the evaluating coach may ask the athlete to swim a little more.  The evaluator will also discuss the short term and long-term goals of the athlete and family.  This will allow our staff to appropriately place an athlete and facilitate their long-term athletic development.  The length of each evaluation may vary depending on the number of participants and the skill level of the athletes at each evaluation, but generally, it should be completed within 30-40 minutes.  After a group evaluation and recommendation by our qualified staff, swimmers will be able to register for any of the Dynamo programs.
