Shweta “Shway” Shreyarthi joined the USA Swimming Foundation in August 2015 as the Make a Splash Program Coordinator. Shway’s passion for sports, exercise, and all things of the like began when she made it to the USA Track and Field Junior Olympics for the 100 meter sprint at age seven. Her continued passion for running and exercising sparked her interest in public health. In 2013, Shway graduated from Syracuse University with a B.S. in Public Health. Through this major she was able to focus on the benefits of sports, youth programming, and nutrition, which she was able to study in-depth abroad in Italy!
Shway comes to the USA Swimming Foundation after working in the Community Programs Department at Asphalt Green, a sports and fitness-based nonprofit in New York City, for 2 years. There, she helped bring sports and fitness programming to over 30,000 inner-city children, as well as managed Swim for the Future, a scholarship fund that gives talented children with financial need the chance to be a part of Manhattan’s premiere swim team, AGUA. Swim for the Future, along with Asphalt Green’s free learn-to-swim program, Waterproofing, furthered Shweta’s interest in bringing swim programming to children.
As the USA Swimming Foundation’s Make a Splash Program Coordinator she continues to bring swim lessons and programming to children throughout the U.S. In her free time, she loves spending time (outside) with her gigantic family and group of friends, attending sporting events, traveling, shopping, baking, and running.
