The Dayton Raiders is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and has been around since 1978. Prior to that, they were known as the Dayton Dolphins established in the early 50’s! The strength of the team without a doubt, lies in its coaching staff, their passion, selflessness and the unique ability to serve the youth of our hard working, middle class families that have comprised the majority of our members over the years. We have persevered for years by swimming in all bodies of water across the Greater Dayton Area, some barely fit to swim in, and most which have closed and been filled in. So, our path is unlike most of the other Gold Medal Teams, but we have developed (1) Olympian, (2) Senior/Numerous Junior National Champions, an American Record Holder, a Junior World Record Holder, Junior World and Jr. Pan Pac members, 2x Junior National Team Champion, numerous Ohio State High School Champions and Record holders and numerous JO Age Group Champions. Not too bad for a club under 200 for the past 70+ years.
