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.
