Reva Zacharias

Head Coach


Reva started swimming as a speedy sixer at GSSC when she was five years old, qualifying for her first All City met as an 8 & under and every year since.  Realizing her passion for swimming at a young age she began swimming for White Water Aquatics.  She became very involved in swimming and continued swimming club throughout her teen years qualifying for several international meets and setting many team records for both Gregory Seahurst and White Water.  Reva also swam for her high school team, the Highline Pirates, and qualified for state placing top 8 in each event she swam. Reva loves to share her passion and knowledge for swimming with others and has always been inspired through the life lessons that swimming has taught her and the many wonderful coaches she's had throughout her swim career who helped guide and encourage her.  Summer league has always taught her what swim is really about - hard work, dedication and building life long friendships with people along the way.  She hopes to pass this mindset on to all of GSSC as well as make each and every swimmer's experience  on GSSC fun and meaningful.
