Swimsuits Approved for BVSSL Swim Meets
The purpose of the BVSSL is to provide a safe, healthy, competitive and fun
swimming experience to all summer swimmers 18 years old and younger.
The BVSSL promotes self discipline, individual achievement and teamwork.
The League is predicated on kids learning proper swimming techniques and sportsmanship in a fun and competitive environment.
Above all, the BVSSL is dedicated to summer swimmers and their excellence in the sport of swimming.
Violations of any of the following rules will cause a swimmer to be ineligible to compete in BVSSL swim meets.
To represent a team in a dual meet, a swimmer must be registered on a BVSSL team roster. A swimmer may represent only one team in the BVSSL in any one season. Once a swimmer competes in one dual meet, team membership is determined for that swim season. BVSSL Swimmer Eligibility Form must be signed by a swimmer's parent/guardian and given to the team representative prior to their participation in the first meet.
There are ten divisions, five each for boys and girls, as follows: 8 & under, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14, and 15-18. The age for each swimmer is determined for the season by the age of the swimmer on May 15th of that swim season. A swimmer may not swim in a younger age group than their age. A swimmer's age group is determined by the age group he or she swims for points during their first dual meet. A swimmer must compete in two (2) dual meets to be eligible to compete in the championships.
A swimmer may participate in stroke clinics, lessons or can work out on their own at any time during the year. A swimmer may swim with a year round team and compete in meets from the day after the BVSSL Championships through October 31st of that same year. From November 1st through May 14th, unrestricted coached swimming is allowed two days per week but competing is not permitted.
Swimmers may swim with their high school team during the regular high school swim season without restriction. A swimmer who competes in swimming at college (as a club or team sport) is not eligible to return and swim in the BVSSL.
