Background

Ryan “Hoff” Hoffer was born July 9, 1998, and is currently a junior in High School. Hoff comes from a very athletic family. His swimming genes are no surprise to anyone who knows his parents, Allison and Scott. Both parents swam for Arizona State University. His brother, Brandon, was a standout age group swimmer before switching to basketball. Brandon currently plays for Colorado Mesa University. Dad, Scott, is a chiropractor.

Hoff swims for Scottsdale Aquatic Club and train under head coach Kevin Zacher.

 

Early Success

As a high school sophomore, AZ Central News named him “Boys Swimmer of the Year.”  He set state records in both the 50 and 100 freestyles, swimming a 19.53 and 43.20 respectively. His 19.53 surpassed the state record he set as a freshman by 0.02.

As a 17 year old, he was ranked first in the 17-18 year old age group in the 50 yard freestyle with a 19.06, and 50 meter freestyle with a 22.80.

 

National/International Competition

At the 2015 Speedo Winter Junior National Championships held in Austin, Texas, Hoff won 4 events: 50 yard free – 19.06, 100 yard fly – 45.46, 100 yard back – 45.58, and the 100 yard free – 41.23. Not only proving himself as an up and coming sprinter, but a versatile swimmer that should have many colleges knocking on his door. This 100 yard free broke Caleb Dressel’s National Age Group record by a very impressive .67 seconds, and is only .15 seconds away from Nathan Adrian’s American Record.

Perhaps Hoff is a name we will see in Rio, 2016.
