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.

Swimming lessons:

We also run lessons for Stages 1-7 through our Jorvik Swim Academy, where many of our older swimmers teach or volunteer as helpers, inspiring the next generation of children to fall in love with swimming.

  • Autumn term timetable Thank you for bearing with us through all the last minute changes necessary to finalise the current timetable (this might still change again if we get positive news from the other school pools that we normally use).  The first week of the new timetable has seen our swimmers enthusiastically attending an increased number of sessions and some more swimmers have returned to training. We had a good attendance at our first Saturday morning session, but still have room for a few more Competitive and Performance swimmers next week!

  • Scarborough Winter Open Team Jorvik swimmers embarked on a 3-day festival of swimming in Scarborough this weekend and the results of their hard work in training this term has been clearly evidenced by the number of medals won by everyone. On Friday evening, Ellie (gold), Robyn (bronze), Eleanor (gold) and Aidan (gold) started Team Jorvik’s medal count competing in the 1500 metres. All were swimming this event for the first time and ultimately finishing in times quicker than I can run! Ellie and Eleanor achieved Yorkshire qualifying times for their efforts. The gala started in earnest on Saturday morning. Aidan (rested after an overnight stay in luxurious accommodation) scored silver in the 400m IM and Alex won gold in the 200m ...
