What is a Virtual Swim
The PMSL has decided that to
decrease the potential for transmission of COVID-19 that each swim
team will hold its own swim meet in its own pool, with its own
swimmers. The results from each event will be submitted through the

team will swim against an opponent, without having to travel to
another pool. Some quick guidelines for a Virtual Swim Meet
- There will be ONE timer in each

Season will bring and we are looking forward to many of our
swimmers post fastest times and continuing the improvements
they made last season.
