PVSL Has determined that all meets for the season will be virtual until at least December.
How does a Virtual meet work?
We will run them just like we did for the mock meets this summer. Swimmers will swim their events, between each group of events ( Relay, Backstroke, Freestyle etc.) we will have a break for swimmers to recharge and we will continue to the next group of events. We then send our result to the hosting team and they will run the reports showing the swimmers results.
Please note as of 9/21/2019 and going forward for both summer and winter seasons meets will be on either Friday evening or Saturday Morning.
Meets in the PVSL (Pioneer Valley Swim League) WINTER season have one format and typically last about 3 - 3.5 hours.
Meets in the PVSSL (Pioneer Valley Summer Swim League) SUMMER season have two formats, Long and Short.
- Short meets last about 2.5-3 hours.
- Long meets last about 4-4.5 hours depending on how big the team we are swimming against is.
- As of 09/21/2019 the PVSSL has determined long meets will no longer be held in the evening, for any team in our league, due to length. If our team is scheduled for a long meet in the evening we will be automatically changing to a short meet format.
