PVS Top Times Lists


The first 2016-2017 PVS Top Times Lists have been updated. The lists are based on the swimmer's age at the time of the swim, which is not necessarily their current age.

These times will be used to create the USA Swimming Top Ten Lists in September. Report any corrections to the PVS SWIMS Coordinator.

The Eastern Zone is now posting Top Times Lists for your information. Now you can easily see where you rank within the Zone.
