Following the end of the A Championship, Dynamos were placed in Division 1A of the KDL, to the consternation of the footballing fraternity of Kerry. They were much too strong for the division and have now been promoted to Premier B while on course to achieve a 100% record for the season.

Tralee Dynamos have underage teams from Under 7s to Under 16s called Kingdom Boys, who are the most successful schoolboy club in Kerry. They celebrated their 50th anniversary in 2011. The club also continues to field senior teams in junior football, its "B" side competing in Division 2B of the Kerry District League.

Tralee Dynamos entered a team in the League of Ireland Under 20 competition for the first time in their history in 2010.

Upon the abolition of the A Championship in 2011, the club had applied for a licence to compete in the 2012 League of Ireland First Division, in accordance with FAI plans to restructure the league format,[3] However this was unsuccessful.
