CLUB EXCELLENCE PROFILE DYNAMO SWIM CLUB KeVIN C. Cox/Getty IMaGes by Caitlyn Foyt whAt sets your CluB ApArt From others? We work really hard at being a team. I come from a college swimming background and so we really try and bring that atmosphere to the age group team. We really stress relays and make it a big deal. At meets, we try to be supportive of each others’ swims and to be recognizable as a team in form and in spirit. how lArGe is your teAm? We have between 700 and 750 swimmers registered this past year. where Do your swimmers Come From? We’re all from Atlanta. Atlanta is unique and has a lot of really good clubs, but we do have some kids who drive quite a ways to come see us. whAt is your CluB philosophy? We try to sell a team environment and encourage learning about team and sport and the responsibilities of being a part of a team. We also feel that we own the most pool space in the nation. There are three pools at each of our facilities and we own all of our own water space because we like to be in control of our own destiny. where CAN people Go to leArN more ABout your CluB? www.dynamoswimclub.com.

We have two training locations, one on the edge of Atlanta and another in Alpharetta, about 16 miles north. WhEN WAS DYNAMO fOuNDED? The team goes back to the 1960s, but our presence starts in 1980 when we built the first facility. That’s when we really started on the path that we continue on now.

SIGNIfICANT AChIEvEMENTS: In 2011, Dynamo not only finished second in USA Swimming’s Club Excellence rankings, it also finished second in USA Swimming’s Virtual Club Championships.
