Born in Richmond, VA, Bradford learned basic survival swimming skills with his father in the city’s YMCA pools He and his two older brothers, Frederick and David, swam for the Richmond Racers Swim Team until 1994 when the Worrell family migrated to St. Lucia. While there, all three siblings competed for the National Swim Team. Bradford competed on a national level until July 2014. Over a twenty-year career, Bradford has taken part in various competitions, including the FINA World Championships and Commonwealth Games. His training in St. Lucia afforded Bradford the opportunity to work with experienced coaches from all over the world. Bradford is also Infant Swimming Resource Certified.
After graduating from Howard University in 2011, Bradford returned to St. Lucia to assist in the Worrell’s family-owned and operated swimming facility, The Rodney Heights Aquatic Centre, where he acted as the head coach for the Racers Swim Club and obtained a Level 2 FINA Coaching Certificate.
In most cases, the best swimmers are rarely the most ‘naturally gifted’ but rather those who are the most disciplined. Bradford’s believes that anyone has the potential to be an outstanding swimmer. His aim is to enable swimmers to realize their aims through hands-on, professional instruction.
