Here's What Initiation into the Coney Island Polar Bear Club Looks Like

You have probably heard of the Coney Island Polar Bear Club for their biggest event, the annual New Year's Day Plunge, but did you know they swim on each and every Sunday during Winter months?

In this video from James Bragg, watch as his buddy Sean takes his first plunge as a member of the club.

Every Sunday during the winter months, the Coney Island Island Polar Bear Club meet on the boardwalk for a cold water swim in the Atlantic.

The epic Baywatch anthem playing in the video is Jimi Jamison — "I'm Always Here"
