Welcome to Team Jorvik

We are a small but ambitious swimming club in York, home to a growing group of swimmers under the guidance of Head Coach David Maxwell. In a friendly but focused atmosphere, we produce swimmers competitive at Yorkshire, North East Regional and National level.  

We also welcome swimmers who are simply looking to work on their fitness. 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.

  • Summer Nationals 2018 For the first time in Team Jorvik’s history, three of our swimmers qualified for the National Summer Meets, which is an amazing achievement!  To explain how these competitions work: there is a qualifying period between March and May - the top 24 ranked swimmers in Great Britain in each event and age group are invited to compete in the British Summer Championships, then the next 20 English swimmers are invited to the Swim England Summer Meet. 15 year old Callum Tonkins qualified for 50m Backstroke at the British competition and 100m Backstroke at the English competition. Also at the English competition, Meredith Harness qualified for 50m and 100m Fly in the 15 year old category, while Aidan Fothergill, 14, qualified ...

  • Rotherham Metro July 2018 Thirteen Team Jorvik swimmers took part in the Rotherham Metro A/B Short Course Meet at Ponds Forge on 14/15 July 2018. This gala marked the end of the season and the apex of our training year. Once again our swimmers did us proud. Despite only being a small group we won a total of 43 medals. The hard work in training over the season obviously paid off as there were lots of PBs with many of our swimmers almost completing a full set. Special mention must go to Jake and Callum who both broke the one minute barrier on the 100 free, both achieving a personal best of 59.49!There were also lots of new qualifying times ...

  • Seaside Special July 2018 On a lovely summer's day in Bridlington, it seemed a shame for us to be sweltering inside the leisure complex.  However, it was well worth it for the fantastic swimming once again produced by our younger members - and the view out to sea from the spectators' gallery was the best you will ever find at a swimming gala!  And, as Charlotte found out later, the sea was actually pretty cold - the pool was much better for swimming in!Pretty much everyone went home with a haul of medals and there were some awesome PBs.  It was great to see many huge improvements in the 100m events (mostly from our gala in March, only 4 months ago) - notably Ellie going ...

  • Jorvik Viking Sprints June 2018 With great anticipation, we looked forward to the best gala of the year - our very own Viking Sprints meet.  As always, it didn't disappoint.  Our awesome team of parent volunteers worked together as one big happy, friendly, efficient team and we all left at the end of the day felling justifiably proud of ourselves, if in need of a glass of wine or two!On the swimming front, the kids were just as awesome - with countless PBs, medals and an incredible number of new Yorkshire qualifying times. Two of our swimmers won Top Boy awards: 9 year old Alex Tew and Zak Moorcroft in the 15+ age group; and we even finished as the 3rd highest team on ...
