The League will hold its 62nd Seeding Meeting on February 26th! The Seeding Committee places the 102 NVSL teams into divisions for the upcoming swim season.

The goal of seeding is to have the most competitive meets possible in which the final scores are decided in the relays.

A Letter from Bob YorkFri, 1-13-2017 | Kelly Parry
To the Vendors, Suppliers, Customers, and Friends of Aardvark Swim & Sport,
It is with a heavy, yet full, heart that I announce the closing of Aardvark Swim & Sport. After over 30 years of running a successful and fulfilling business, I have decided that it is time for me to retire. I feel that the time is right to move on to the next phase of my life and focus on my family, health, and coaching my swimmers.
I wanted to take this moment to let you all know that I valued both our business relationships and friendships throughout these 30 years. I appreciate the trust that you have put in me and my company. I hope that you understand the seriousness with which I treated our relationships and know that the internal struggle I faced while making this decision was not one that I made easily or lightly.
I cannot thank you enough for the support and kindness you have given Aardvark and myself over these many years, it has been appreciated more than I will ever be able to fully express. I look forward to a happy and peaceful 2017.
