  • Let's Swim!

    Fri, 6-14-2024 | NVSL Executive Board

    After a long winter and spring of planning and laying the foundation for the 2024 season, we are so excited to be swimming again in our first Dual Meets tomorrow! Nervous new swimmers and seasoned seniors, athletes from ages 5 to 18, will all take their marks and hit the water as we advance the NVSL's mission for another summer: "A love for the sport, advanced aquatic skills, teamwork, and the principles of good sportsmanship." 

    We extend our sincere thanks to the hundreds of league volunteers - committee chairs and members, team reps, data coordinators and more - who have worked many hours behind the scenes so that our swimmers, coaches and families can enjoy the best that summer swimming has to offer. Over 900 volunteers attended our officiating clinics - wow! Thank you for the vital role that you will play this season in ensuring that our meets are safe, fair and fun for the athletes. 

    Tomorrow morning, when a cheeseburger sounds like the absolute best thing to eat at 9:30 in the morning, when the music is playing loud, when the crowd is cheering, when the referee's whistle quiets the pool, and when the swimmers compete and then shake hands, you will know that you are in the perfect place to spend a Saturday in Northern Virginia.  No better place to be than at one of our amazing 102 NVSL pools for a swim meet! Best of luck to all our swimmers across the league -- swim fast, have fun!

  • Hy-tek - Team Manager UPDATE needed

    Tue, 6-4-2024 | NVSL Technology Committee

    It has come to our attention that Team Manager needs a critical update. This update will have to be done manually as the "Check for Updates" button in the software is unresponsive. If you open Team Manager and do not see Release 8.0Ga, you must do this update. Currently it will not allow you to set the System Age-up Date beyond 01/01/24. You need to set your age-up date to 6/1/24. Please share this with your data people ASAP!

    Directions to install the update can be found HERE.

    Any questions, please reach out to NVSL Technology (NVSLtechnology@gmail.com).
