Swim FAQ

  • How do I sign my swimmer up for meets?

Go to Website Account and Login which is required to access meet event and job sign-ups.

Meets/Events

Once you are logged in, you can sign up for meet jobs and swimmer events through the "Meets/Events" tab.

Each meet or event will be tagged based on whether they are open, closed or pending for job and swimmer signup. You will also see any related files posted for these meets such as directions, meet sheets and results.

  • What happens when there is a thunderstorm during a meet?

If thunder is heard or lightening occurs during a meet, we must clear the deck for 20 - 30 minutes. This usually means going to your car to wait it out. The host team decides if we will return to the deck and resume the meet or if they will cancel the remainder of the meet. This is determined by considering how many events are left, how late into the night the storm starts, the prediction for clearer skies or more thunderstorms. We will use various forms of communication to notify families of delays or cancellations.

  • What is Time Trials?

Time Trials are held on a Saturday morning prior to the official start of the season. Time Trials gives swimmers a competitive atmosphere for timing. In essence, it is a “meet” with our own swimmers competing against each other in meet conditions. We run Time Trials so that the coaches will have times for swimmers and will be able to seed our first Saturday “A” meet with as much information as possible. It is also the basis for personal bests.

  • What is Divisionals?

Every year on the last Saturday in July, each of the 18 divisions comprising the NVSL holds an Individual Championship Meet (referred to as “Divisionals”) at one of the division’s pools. This year, the Division 2 Individual Championship Meet will be held on July 23rd at Little Rocky Run. Each of the six teams in the division sends its two fastest swimmers in each event, for a total of 12 swimmers or two heats for every event. In addition to the individual events that are part of the “A” Meets, swimmers may also compete in the Individual Medley at Divisionals.

Each swimmer can swim only two events at Divisionals. If a swimmer has one of the top two times in more than two events, he/she will be able to pick the events in which he/she wants to participate. This opens up slots for other swimmers. Not all teams enter two swimmers for each event. When this happens, other teams have an opportunity to add an additional swimmer from their team. These slots are filled based on who has the fastest time. Also, on the day of Divisionals, a swimmer may have an emergency or an illness which prevents them from swimming. Other swimmers will have the opportunity to fill those spots.

For seeding purposes at Divisionals, each swimmer’s fastest current season time is used.

No team scores are kept for this meet; it really is for the individual swimmers. The times from each of the 18 NVSL Divisional Meets are collected, and the swimmers with the top 18 times, plus two alternates, are invited to swim in the Individual All Stars.

  • What is INDIVIDUAL ALL STARS?

Individual All Stars is always the last NVSL event of the season, usually the first weekend in August, This year Individual All Stars will be held on July 31st. The swimmers with the 18 fastest times in each event from the 18 Divisionals Meets qualify for All Stars. Two alternates are also designated. There are three heats for each event at All Stars. No team scores are kept for this meet; it really is for the individual swimmers.

  • What is ALL STAR RELAY CARNIVAL?

Every year on the Wednesday evening after the 4th “A” Meet of the season, the top 18 relay teams for each event competed at the Division Relay Carnivals are invited to compete at the All Star Relay Carnival. The All Star Relay Carnival is a scored meet. The winning team is officially recognized and receives a trophy. NVSL also uses the points each team scores at the Division Relay Carnivals and All Star Relay Carnival to seed NVSL teams in the 18 divisions.

  • What is Division Relay Carnival?

Divisional Relay Carnival: In addition to the five Saturday NVSL A meets, certain swimmers also participate in the Divisional Relay Carnival, usually held on a Wednesday between the third and fourth weeks of the swim season. Swimmers participate in medley relays (back, breast, butterfly, and free) and freestyle relays. There also is a Mixed Age Relay, comprised of the fastest freestyle swimmer in each age group (9/10, 11/12, 13/14 and 15-18). If one or more of the relays has a time that is among the top 18 times from the NVSL, the eligible relay will then participate in All-Star Relays, typically held the following Wednesday evening. If a relay makes it to the All-Star Relay Carnival, the same four swimmers will participate.
