Our History

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.
