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.
