NVSL "A" Meets
Northern Virginia Swimming League (NVSL) meets are competitive meets and swimmers are chosen by coaches to swim based on their times and on the coaches' assessment of which combination of swimmers will result in the most points for the team. In general, this is an objective process based on swimmers with the fastest times, but there is a subjective element to it as coaches determine how best to organize swimmers to maximize team points.
“A” meets are on Saturday mornings for five consecutive weeks. “A” meets are governed by NVSL rules. They are scored and determine standing in our division. Selected swimmers are notified at practice and by email and are expected to swim unless they have notified the team reps and coaches well in advance. A swimmer is allowed to swim only two individual events and two relay events at an A meet.
If your swimmer is not available to swim, please email the swim team reps as soon as you know.
All Saturday meets start at 9:00 am unless otherwise announced. The home team warms up from 8:00-8:25 am, and the away team warms up from 8:25-8:50 am.
