    Ep. 47 Coach David Stephens On How To Keep a Swim Team Thriving During a Pandemic

    Ep. 47 Coach David Stephens On How To Keep a Swim Team Thriving During a Pandemic

    David Stephens, owner of Chicago's premier youth swim team CWAC Swimming (https://www.teamunify.com/Home.jsp?team=iscwac) saw a big gap in the Chicago youth sports market. Coming from one of the country's number one swim states, Georgia, the city of Chicago had no elite swim teams, and no one seemed to be thinking of starting one. Chicago IS known for its championship basketball, football, baseball and hockey teams. And as cold as it is in Chicago, there hasn't been a focus on teaching young people anything but "learn-to-swim." David shares his story about how he left his career as a successful lawyer and built a thriving family business around his love of swimming as sport. And, he describes how he is the first swim team in the State of Illinois that strategically focuses on diversity and inclusion in a global sport that has a history of extreme racism and discrimination.
