York City Baths Club is a competitive swimming club operating in a variety of pools in York.
We provide great opportunities for swimmers of all abilities, from swimming lessons within our very own learn to swim scheme, through to competitive swimming training within our squad programme. Opportunities do not stop there however, swimmers are able to become involved in masters swimming and water polo.
The club follows the principles of Long Term Development and focuses entirely on the development of the skill in a fun and friendly swimming environment. Swimmers at York City Baths Club compete in a variety of competitions, ranging from graded meets to National Championships. We are extremely proud of our historic achievements – including 5 Olympians to date!
The club has strong links with the City of York Council, York St. John University and a whole host of other swimming programmes across North Yorkshire.
Dear parents and swimmers,
As you know, our current Vice President, Pat Baxter passed away on 12th July after a short illness.
She had been associated with the Club for over 50 years.
For those that would like to attend, we have been advised that Pat’s funeral will take place at York Crematorium at 11am on Monday 31st July, moving afterwards to The Marcia in Bishopthorpe. No black, bright colours only – Pat’s instructions!
No flowers – any donations will be for Cancer Care UK.
It may be a nice mark of respect to wear something orange, or for any swimmers attending to bring their orange YCBC cap as a flash of our club colours. I would be grateful if you could pass this message on to anyone else who has been associated with the club over the years, and who would like to know.
For those interested, the York Evening Press have written a lovely article about the life of Pat, highlighting the amazing contribution she made to York City Bath Club throughout the years. To read the article please click here
STOP PRESS: New YCBC Club Kit now available!
We are excited to introduce a fresh new kit for you to wear when representing your club! The new collection of Club Kit has been designed specifically for YCBC by Kukri, and we hope that our squad swimmers will enjoy wearing it. The new kit will give us a more visible identity as a club, both at galas and to the general public.
