Meet Schedule


Note: Meets will be either Friday Nights or Saturday Mornings. All Home meets will be Saturday Mornings.  To qualify for champs you must attend a minimum of 4 meets.

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.
