Swimsuits Approved for 2016 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 in writing or be on that team's roster and met the team's financial obligations. 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. Eligibility does not preclude a team offering financial assistance on an as needed basis.
A BVSSL Swimmer Eligibility form must be signed or e-signed by a swimmer's parent/guardian and given to the team representative prior to their participation in the first meet. Team Manager Rosters- including birth dates- are to be turned in at the pre-season meeting. This will be the evidence that the forms were signed by each swimmer/parent. Revised/updated rosters (both pdf and Hy-Tek TM format) must be emailed to the president within the week following the second dual meet. Any further revisions to the roster must be turned in no later than the heating meeting.
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. Furthermore, 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 dual meets to be eligible to compete in the championships. Each team must electronically submit a roster to the League President at the same time that prelim entries are submitted.
Swimmers may 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 end of BVSSL season through October 31st of that same year. From November 1 through the end of BVSSL season, unrestricted coached swimming is only allowed two days per week but competing with teams outside of BVSSL teams is not permitted. The only exception is that school swimmers may swim and compete with their school team during the regular high school swim season without restriction. Swimmers may also participate in other water sports. A swimmer who competes in swimming at college after October 31 (as a club or team sport) is not eligible to return and swim in the BVSSL. Violations of this section will cause a swimmer to be ineligible to compete (other than as exhibition) in BVSSL the following summer.
