Originally from Richmond, VA, David grew up swimming for the Richmond Racers (a team operated by the City of Richmond). At the age of 12, he and his family moved to the island of St. Lucia where he swam for the national team at regional swim meets. He swam competitively throughout secondary school and when he returned to the DC metro area. David attended Howard University, where he studied Finance. After graduation, he worked as a litigation consultant. In 2009 he re-entered the competitive swimming arena, coaching at Machine Aquatics for 1 season. In that year David also became a certified Infant Swimming Resource™ instructor. He has taught ISR lessons full-time since May 2010. In February 2014 David founded WEAquatics, beginning with the Young Masters program to help children see how much fun training and swimming in a team can be.
David’s wife, Malanda Worrell, is his biggest support. She helps him give back to swimming just the way he intended.
David and Brad are on a mission to make swimming with WEAquatics (Infant Swimming Resource™/ Learn-To-Swim/ Young Masters) something exciting and empowering for all swimmers, young and old. David has worked with children from infancy all the way up to their first swim meet as competitive swimmers. Seeing his students improve is what keeps him dedicated to the sport.
