Reid started swimming at age 5 in Knoxville, Tennessee, and he's been around the water ever since. Through high school he swam for Pilot Aquatic Club where he specialized in sprint butterfly and mid-distance backstroke. He then attended college at UNC Chapel Hill where he was named most improved as a freshman, beginning to specialize in distance freestyle events. By his junior year he was an All-American in the mile and qualified for the 2004 Olympic Trials where he finished 16th in the 1500 free. As a senior he was a team captain, but a recurring shoulder injury cut short his competitive pursuits – technique is vital to avoid injury!
Since graduating from UNC, Reid has continued to stay involved in swimming. After moving to the DC area, he began his club coaching career for the Potomac Marlins starting in 2005 and his summer league career for Waynewood of the NVSL in Division 5. Over the next decade he continued to coach part-time in Alexandria for the Marlins and for Waynewood while he worked as a banker, attended law school, and spent 5 years as public defender in Maryland.
Eventually the allure of the pool drew Reid back into coaching full-time for the Marlins in 2015. For the past 4 seasons Reid has coached the National Training Group for Occoquan Swimming where his athletes broke 76% of the team records for 15-16 and Open Athletes. One of Reid’s best swimmers and team record holders during his time at Occoquan was Anna Kenna, a Brookfield Breaker!!
This past year Reid took a step back from full-time coaching to be with his daughter while they navigated COVID and virtual learning, but he couldn’t give up the pool completely, coaching for the Potomac Marlins at Cub Run Rec Center. Currently Reid coaches the Marlin’s Age Group Aerobic Development group in the afternoons, and is an assistant coach for George Mason University in the morning.
Reid is beyond excited to join the Breakers this summer and help a whole new group of athletes fall in love with the sport that has given him so much. We’ll see coach Reid on the deck soon!
I swam with Brookfield for 9 years and helped out with the summer program last year! My favorite strokes are freestyle and breaststroke, and my favorite breaker traditions are pancake breakfast and paper plate awards. I am a current college student and am so excited that I get to spend another summer with the Breakers! I can't wait for the season and to get back to the pool, GO BREAKERS!!
My name is Sam Shervanick, and I have been swimming with the Breakers since I was six years old. I’m a rising senior at St. Paul VI Catholic High School where I have been on the varsity swim team for the last three years. My favorite strokes are freestyle and butterfly. I enjoyed coaching this winter with the Breakers winter swim program. I am very excited to coach this summer and to cheer the team on as Captain Floatation as well!
Hello! My name is Haley and I am so excited to have been given the opportunity to coach for Brookfield once again! I have been swimming for a decade, ten seasons with Brookfield and almost eight years combined between two different USA Swimming clubs. I am currently swimming for the Potomac Marlins in the Senior Gold training group, in addition to Brookfield. Being a part of the Brookfield Breaker family has always been something I have loved, and I hope that through the fun we will have as a team this year, each and every member of the Brookfield family will enjoy their summer. Let's go Breakers!
Hello! My name is Angel Enfinger. I have been swimming with the Brookfield Breakers for 10 years. This year I will be returning as a assistant coach for my eleventh year! I’m excited to take part in all the breaker traditions this year.
