The North St. John’s Swim and Tennis Club was established in 1964 at the end of Marydell Road in Ellicott City, Maryland. The eight acres of land was a gift by surrounding neighbors to start a local swim club. Throughout the years, NSJ has maintained its original allure while building Division 1 Dive and Swim Teams. We celebrated our 50th Anniversary in 2014.

NSJ is run by a volunteer Board of Directors. There are five Executive Board positions and eight Directors. In 2011 we hired a pool management company, to oversee the facility maintenance, staffing and training of employees.

Our club is a high-usage facility during the months of May through September. In order to retain membership and a wait list, we need to constantly maintain the pool, club house and grounds. We have consistent member retention and draw from the immediate Ellicott City area which includes 4 elementary schools, 2 middle schools and 2 high schools. We are proud to have some of the founding members and their younger generations as part of the NSJ family.

We have won the Best of Howard County in 2013 and 2014.  We were an honorable mention in 2015, 2016 and 2017.
