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.

  • Leeds New Year Meet 2019 Our first gala of 2019 was the City of Leeds New Year meet - had those post-Christmas morning sessions paid off or were the swimmers still recovering from an excess of chocolate over the festive period??  Well it was quite a mixed bag but some of our younger swimmers certainly impressed: Robyn and Aiden S looked as if they had been putting in extra training sessions instead of eating their Christmas dinner as they both smashed PB's (Aiden knocking off 17 seconds from his 50 Fly and Robyn 30 seconds from her 200m IM!); Alex T had similar huge improvements in 100m & 200m Free; and Jess G achieved a full set of PBs in her 5 events.The following ...

  • Short course NER success This year we had 19 swimmers with qualifying times for the winter Regional SC Championships - again a record number! But due to the competition being staged just two weeks after the Yorkshire Winter Competition, and most of the swimmers going on the swim camp to Spain in between, David generally advised people not to enter. Thus it was that a small party of just seven swimmers made their way to Sheffield on the first week in November. Bethan Endicott, in her first North East Regionals after moving from East of England region, qualified for 9 events altogether and won a complete set of Gold, Silver and Bronze medals - in the Age 13 50m Fly, 50m Back and 100m Fly respectively ...
