The Sea Pony Program is a program specifically for children ages 4 to 8 who are interested in learning beginning swim technique and water safety with the optional (but encouraged!) goal of continuing on to recreational swimming with Ygnacio Wood Swim Team.

Our small groups (3-4 swimmers per trained instructor) spend 30-minutes both on deck and inside the pool learning beginner stroke technique and basic water safety in two-week sessions throughout the summer. Our instructors utilize three levels – beginner, intermediate, advanced – to categorize our swimmers so that there is a safe and personalized atmosphere for each swimmer. At the end of the session, your child will receive a certificate of completion.

You should bring your child 15 minutes early on the first day of each session. Proper swimwear is required: sunscreen, long hair pulled back into a ponytail, goggles. No fins or floaties, please. For more information contact the Sea Pony Coordinator, at seaponies@ywst.org.

If you are interested in private one-on-one lessons or lessons for a child under the age of 4, please contact Head Sea Pony Instructor at seaponies@ywst.org.
