Each season all 18 divisions comprising the NVSL hold a Relay Carnival at one of the division's pools.  This takes place on a Wednesday evening mid-way thru the season and ONLY relays are swum at this meet.  Every team may send ONE relay team for each event swum at the relay carnival.  Marlins coaches will select the teams who will compete in this meet and will notify the swimmers individually.

Following are the relays swum by both girls and boys:

200 M Freestyle Mixed Age 
100 M Medley Relay - 8 & Under
100 M Medley Relay - 9-10
100 M Medley Relay - 11-12

100 M Freestyle Relay - 9-10
100 M Freestyle Relay - 11-12

This is a scored meet.  The winning team is recognized and a trophy. The top 18 relays for each event from across all 18 divisions will advance to All Star Relay Carnival which takes place the following Wednesday during the day.


This meet takes place the Wednesday after Division Relay Carnival and begins in the late afternoon.  The top 18 finishers from across all 18 divisions in the NVSL will be seeded in this meet.  The relay teams remain the same, most of the time, as the team that qualified at Division Relay Carnival.  Teams are only allowed to substitute/replace 1 swimmer in each relay team.

This is a scored meet with the winning team receiving a trophy.  NVSL also uses the points each team scores at the Division Relay Carnival and All Star Relay Carnival to seed the teams in the divisions.


Every year in late July, each division within the NVSL holds Divisionals at one of the division’s pools.  The events swum are the same as those at a Saturday A Meet, along with the individual medley. Each of the six teams within their division sends 2 swimmers for every event, for a total of 12 swimmers/2 heats per event.  There are NO relays swum at this meet.

Each swimmer can swim a maximum of 2 events at this meet.  If a swimmer has the fastest time, based on A Meet results, in more than 2 events they can choose which events they want to swim, opening up the opportunity for another teammate to swim in the meet.  Marlins coaches seed 3 swimmers in each event, with the 3rd swimmer being the alternate.  Swimmers can be alternates in more than 2 events.

This is NOT a scored meet.  It is truly for the individual swimmers.  The top 18 swimmers in eac event across all divisions in the NVSL will advance to All Stars which takes place the following Saturday.


This meet is held on the last Saturday in July/first Saturday in August and is the last meet of the NVSL season.  The top 18 swimmers and 2 alternates are seeded in each individual event (3 heats per event).  Seeding is based on the results from Divisionals the prior week.  This meet is NOT scored.  It is an individual meet with your team’s support.  Medals and ribbons are awarded to everyone and there is a group photo after each race.
