For 2021, there are no qualifying times for the Eastern Zone Age Group Meet. Due to COVID-19, each LSC is limited to 12 athletes per day per age group and gender. So, the PVS Zone Team Coordinator and Head Coach will select the top athletes in each event from those that apply up to these athlete limits.
In order to be considered for the team, an application must be submitted. Payment is not due until after the team is selected,
but submitting the application means the family is committed to paying the $75 fee if selected for the team. This year, each athlete
is responsible for their own travel to/from the meet and for their lodging and meals. The zone team fee covers coaches travel,
t-shirts and swim caps, and meet entry fees.
(7/19/21 - Applications are closed)
Questions about the zone team, application, and selection process should be directed to the 2021 PVS LC Zone Team Coordinator: Morgon Henderson-Kunz

Congratulations to the newest member of the PVS Board, Junior Athlete Representative Sophie Elliott. The large turnout for the election show that PVS athletes are active and engaged in the operation of PVS.
Although the end of their senior year has been turned upside down, we still want to acknowledge and honor our 2020 PVS H.S. Seniors. We ask each club to send us the names and selected colleges of their seniors so we can add them to the list. Congratulations to them and their families!

The U.S. Center for Safe Sport has issued a new mandatory policy called MAAPP (Minor Athlete Abuse Prevention Policy). You can read the policy and additional information about the policy on the USA Swimming website.
Also, all adult athletes (i.e., athletes that are 18 years old or older) must complete the Athlete Protection Training. Though it sounds daunting/annoying, the training is quite short and simple. Importantly, adult athletes will not be permitted to compete without completing the training. The requirement is now in effect and the grace period for compliance is July 23, 2019 or 30 days after the athlete's 18th birthday, whichever is later.
Congratulations to our 2020 PVS H.S. Seniors
I am always on the lookout for more pictures to use on the PVS home page. If you took pictures at any meets and are willing to share them with PVS, please send them to me. They need to be pictures that can be cropped to the 5:2 format. I am interested in pictures of swimmers, coaches, officials and other volunteers that make up PVS. I retain sole discretion on which pictures to use on the website -- Webmaster
