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.
