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.
For over 50 years, Dynamo Swim Club has continually grown and developed into a model 18 and under club in the US. As a top age group program in Georgia Swimming, Dynamo has built numerous state champions and record holders and has achieved national recognition in countless National Age Group Top 16 rankings. Furthermore, Dynamo consistently has more Scholastic All Americans than any other team in the country.
Since the early 1980s, Dynamo swimmers have represented the United States at the Olympic Games, World Championships, the Pan American Games, Pan Pacific Championships, The Goodwill Games, and the World University Games. American Swimming Coaches Association has repeatedly recognized Dynamo’s exceptional training and stroke technique which has resulted in titles at USA Swimming Senior and Junior National Championships. Dynamo had four swimmers in Rio for the 2016 Olympics and Paralympics. Gunnar Bentz (gold medal) and Jay Litherland (5th) represented the USA, as did Paralympic finalist, McClain Hermes (8th). Additionally, 2012 London Olympian Matias Koski made his second Olympic appearance in Rio, representing Finland.
The Dynamo Olympic traditions continued in Tokyo for the 2021 Summer Games. Gunnar Bentz, Jay Litherland and Brooks Curry all represented Dynamo on Team USA. Curry brought home gold as a member of the 4 x 100 free relay team while Litherland took silver in the 400 individual medley. Gia Pergolini represented the USA and Dynamo in the 2021 Tokyo Paralympic Games. Gia brought home gold in the 100 M backstroke.
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.
