Welcome to Team Jorvik

Team Jorvik is a small, friendly, inclusive swimming club in York. Affiliated to Swim England, we provide the opportunity for children and young adults to compete at all levels or to simply enjoy being active. 

We offer excellent swim training with qualified coaches at locations throughout York, with a base at Archbishop Holgate's School. We have small squads, each with their own dedicated coaches, which means we are able to work with each individual swimmer to ensure that they can achieve their own potential. 

We believe that swimming is for life and we work hard to ensure that our members enjoy their swimming journey in a social and supportive environment. And we welcome the involvement and support of all members of our swimmers' families in the running of the club!

Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.

  • We held a gala! We were proud to be among the first clubs to hold a Level 3 meet after Covid restrictions were lifted - our "annual" Jorvik Viking Sprints was held a month later than usual, on 24th July 2021 at John Charles Centre, Leeds.  There were still restrictions in place, including no spectators being allowed, and the timing system wasn't working properly, but that didn't dampen the swimmers' enthusiasm and everybody's delight and relief at being able to attend a gala again after 16 months.  For many swimmers this was their first gala.Team Jorvik swimmers put in magnificent performances all round, with nearly all swims being PBs, a handful of new Yorkshire QTs being achieved and lots of medals ...
