About Us

Welcome! The Ygnacio Wood Swim Club is a community-based recreational pool club and non-profit organization focused on providing fun events and swimming opportunities for local residents all summer long. Membership helps forge solid community ties and grooms even our youngest members to become loyal and active members of a thriving community that crosses neighborhood and school boundaries. Our members are the Club’s greatest assets!

3124 San Gabriel Drive, Concord, CA  94518            (925) 338-0843

We are also proud to be home to the Ygnacio Wood Swim Team – the Seahorses! Our Swim Team strives to provide excellent instruction and exciting competition while producing productive and respectful young citizens with a solid sense of fair play and enthusiastic team spirit. One of the benefits our swim club offers its members is the opportunity for children of all ages to be a part of an amazing group of swimmers. Our Club and Team fees are kept as low as possible in order to give as many families possible the opportunity to participate. The Club and Team organization and operations are done largely by volunteers. The heart of any non-profit organization is the commitment of its parents and families to give freely of their time and talents. YWSC and YWST are fortunate to have many generous and hard-working families who make the Club and Team a wonderful summer experience for everyone.

We look forward to being able to help you. The best way to reach us is via email.

More about the team

Ygnacio Wood Swim Team was established in 1969 and has a long and proud history of producing many successful swimmers and contributing to the healthy development of children over the years. YWST is a summer recreational swim team that balances swimming education, technique and training with good-old fashioned summer fun. The team promotes spirit, sportsmanship, and pride. The team fees are kept as low as possible in order to give as many families possible the opportunity to participate. The organization and running of the team is done solely by volunteer parents. The heart of any team is the commitment of its parents and families to give freely of their time and talents. YWST is fortunate to have so many generous and hard working families who make this team a wonderful summer experience for everyone. Active involvement in the swim team can also create family friendship for life. The seasons start with optional pre-season in April and ends in early August with our league championship. (Some swimmers swim in the County Meet in mid-August) Swimmers practice five days per week, but this is recreational swimming where many families take vacation in the middle of the season and miss meets and practices. Our coaches are usually former YWST swimmers and bring a lifetime of passion and excitement to the team. We certainly believe that we have the best coaches in the area and we put a premium on growing new coaches from the team. Give your kids a summer unlike any where they build friendships and life-long bonds. Welcome to Ygnacio… Gooooo Seahorses!
