• 2022 NVSL Dive by the Numbers

    Sun, 8-28-2022 | Jim Sweeder

    Below is the link to the summary of the 2022 NVSL Dive Season -- "NVSL Dive - by the numbers 2022".  Please forward to your team parents, volunteers, and supporters of NVSL Dive.  We have had a record number of divers registered this past season and our championship meets were extremely successful.  I hope this data compilation will provide the basis for even more expansion and support for the sport of diving within our communities.  Thank you all for your valuable input and continued support of NVSL Dive!

  • A Quick Note on Sportsmanship

    Thu, 7-14-2022 | Jim Sweeder

    As we enter the last two weeks of dual meet competition and begin our championship events, I want to encourage our officials (referees, judges, table workers, and announcers), coaches, team representatives, parents, and spectators to maintain the high standards of sportsmanship that the NVSL Standards of Conduct demand.  Just a few reminders . . .

    * Many judgment calls made during the meet are “in the opinion of the referee.”  As such, they stand.  While other officials, coaches and spectators may disagree with a particular call (or non-call), the referee’s decision is final.  For team reps and coaches, referee judgment calls are not grounds for a protest.  We also don’t use any video replay in our decision criteria.

    * When there is a question of a rule interpretation or application, the referee should attempt to resolve it in a timely manner, i.e., prior to the next dive, if possible.  Coaches, officials, and team reps can legitimately raise a rule application question during the meet, but should do so in a courteous, non-confrontational manner.  The team reps need to be involved in any of these discussions and the meet should not be unduly delayed.

    * We are all human, have our own opinions, and can make mistakes.  Math errors, incorrect rule applications, wrong DDs, etc., can all be adjudicated.  But we also need to be role models for our divers in these interactions.

    Finally, as the NVSL Handbook says, remember that we are all responsible for developing in our children,

    A love for the sport, advanced aquatic skills, teamwork, and the principles of good sportsmanship.

  • Note to new judges in the NVSL

    Mon, 6-13-2022 | Jim Sweeder

    As the NVSL Dive Chief Official, I wanted to offer you some insight and advice.  Last year we had 2334 divers in NVSL – that’s the most since I’ve been keeping records from 1998.  Let’s give each of these divers the opportunity to compete equitably.  NVSL has a great reputation for judging “according to the standards of diving.”  As new judges, each of you are now charged with maintaining that reputation of excellence.

    We are ready to begin the 2022 NVSL Dive season and you have (I hope) joined us at one of the Judging Clinics.  For first time judges, you will have the best seat at the pool; here are a few hints at your first time in the “seat.”

  • A Note from the Chief Dive Official

    Thu, 6-17-2021 | Jim Sweeder

    To all of our new and returning NVSL Dive judges:

    We’ve completed two Judge Clinics and have one more on Wednesday, June 23rd at Camelot.  Thanks to all who attended and please encourage other dive parents to attend the next one, particularly in-person if possible, to get the most out of the judging instruction and practice.

    There are a few reminders I’d like to pass on to you as you begin the 2021 NVSL Dive season:

    Remember the four keys to judging:

    1. Bold, forceful, controlled approach, one-foot hurdle, two-foot takeoff
    2. Verticality in takeoff (up, not out)
    3. Tight and defined body positions (straight, pike, tuck, or free) for dives, somersaults, and/or twists
    4. Nearly vertical entry which is “finished” prior to hitting the water

    Decide where the dive falls using the criteria for the scoring range (Failed, Unsatisfactory, Deficient, Satisfactory, Good, Very Good, Exceptional).  Then assign a score that best describes the skills (or lack thereof) demonstrated.

    If you want to get a bit more practice, I would suggest you view the following link from the National Federation of High Schools to see various dives with suggested scoring.  The site is:  one-meter-diving-table-with-video-clips.pdf (nfhs.org).  You will note that there is a range of scores given, since this is an aesthetic and judgmental sport.  Also, one note of caution – there is an error -- the 105B is the same video as the 105C, but with a different scoring range.  Evidently, they uploaded the wrong dive, but added the new scoring range for a dive you cannot see.  So, in our rules, the referee would declare the dive out of position and instruct the judges to score a max of 2 for the dive.  All of the other dives appear ok.

    Remember, your job is to judge the quality of the dive, not the difficulty.  You have the best seats in the pool.  Have fun and keep focused.  See you on deck and enjoy the diving.

  • Getting ready for 2021

    Wed, 4-7-2021 | Lynn Clark

    NVSL Dive is gearing up to return to competition this summer. We are very hopeful that we will be able to have a full, safe, and enjoyable season. We have invited our 2020 graduated seniors to come back and dive this summer, and several have accepted the invitation. We look forward to giving them a proper senior send-off, along with our 2021 graduates!

    We are keeping up to date on Covid-19 guidance and may need to modify our usual meet logistics somewhat to allow for social distancing and pool capacity limits, but with a little creativity and flexibility, we can do this. It's great to see so many adults getting vaccinated, and this will really help the volunteer situation on the pool deck. We have posted suggested Covid-19 protocols to help your pool clubs and teams plan for the season. Every club and team is different, and the pandemic situation is fluid, so please take these as suggestions only.

    Team reps, please mark your calendars for the May 23 virtual team rep meeting at 4pm and the distribution of your meet materials at Arlington Forest on June 6 from 8am to noon. There will also be judging and table work clinics that morning, offered both in person and virtually. More info to come.


  • Free diving judge course

    Fri, 6-5-2020 | Jim Sweeder

    NVSL Dive Reps, Referees, and Judges:

    As the Chief Diving Official for the NVSL, I have received a notification of a free diving judge course for prospective/existing judges.  A FREE course is available from the National Federation of High Schools (NFHS) for diving judges.  PLEASE NOTE that the diving rules are not exactly the same as our NVSL rule, but the judging criteria is the same.

    I’m forwarding the link below to you to take advantage of the courses offered FREE by NFHS.  One of the courses is “Officiating Swimming and Diving” – don’t worry, there is a separate Diving only section.  While it includes preliminary “how to officiate” stuff and a review of the High School Rules, it has a very valuable section on practice judging.  There are 30 different dives shown and you get to judge each; NFHS does a good job of explaining the rationale for each “score” (they actually use the scoring descriptors – satisfactory, deficient, good, etc.).  So, if you want to improve/test your dive judging abilities, I’d recommend you take a look at this course.  It’s free until July 1.  Click the link in the blue box below and register with NFHS; then find the diving course under the COURSES tab under “Officiating Swimming and Diving.”

    This course can be found at https://nfhslearn.com/courses/officiating-swimming-and-diving

    Hope you are all safe.  Hope also to see you at the pools next season.

  • Important Season Update

    Sun, 5-24-2020 | Lynn Clark

    Both NVSL Swim and Dive have decided to cancel the 2020 season due to the pandemic. Safety is our utmost concern, and there is too much uncertainty surrounding the pandemic for us to be able to plan a season that would be safe and enjoyable for the NVSL families. Dues that have been collected for 2020 will be applied to 2021, and there will be no assessment at all for 2020.


    For team reps, answers to frequently asked questions on the season cancellation can be found here: https://dive.mynvsl.com/file/31537/2020___Diving_Season_FAQ_pdf


    For 2020 graduating high school seniors, the NVSL scholarship application, due 6/26, can be found here: https://dive.mynvsl.com/documents?folder_id=26937

    We look forward to returning in 2021. Stay safe!

  • COVID-19

    Fri, 3-20-2020 | Nancy Jessen

    While all of us navigate life under the threat of the COVID-19 virus, our League has received a number of inquiries about the upcoming NVSL swim and dive season.   We kindly request that you allow us time to make an informed determination as we explore various scenarios, which may result in a cancelled season, an abbreviated season, a delayed season or a full season as scheduled.

    We are closely monitoring everything that we can, including federal, state and local government guidance and prohibitions, other swim leagues and organization guidance, local and non-local, and our member pool decisions. We have always stressed safety in the NVSL, and our priority will continue to be the health and safety of those involved in our community.

    We wish you the very best and hope that you and your loved ones remain healthy.

  • 2019 NVSL Scholarship Recipients

    Wed, 7-31-2019 | Thomas Joyce

    Each year the NVSL awards scholarships to graduating high school swimmers/divers to be used at the school of their choice to help defray a portion of their continuing education expenses. The league considers team commitment and leadership, school and community involvement, and a submitted essay as criteria for selection. The essay asks these stand out senior members of our community, "what life lessons swimming/diving in the NVSL taught me?" 

    Our five scholarship recipients were announced this past week at NVSL All Star Relays--this year, we are pleased to announce the following recipients:

    Presidents’ Scholarship Troy Young

    Troy is a 13 year member of the of the Ravensworth Farm swim team and a 12 year member of their dive team. He competed in NVSL All Stars in both swimming and diving, receiving High-Point awards and serving as a swim coach and as a co-head dive coach. Troy attended Lake Braddock Secondary School, where he was on the swim and dive and soccer teams. He was selected as captain of both teams. He was a member of the Bruin Minds Matter club, DECA, and participated in the state level science fair. Troy organized a swim-a-thon fundraiser benefiting the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Troy will be attending Catholic University of America in the fall, studying Biomedical Engineering on the Pre-med track.

  • Championship Meet Season is here!

    Mon, 7-8-2019 | Thomas Joyce

    It feels like the season just started (and some teams still have only completed one meet), but this weekend begins the four-week championship season. On each consecutive Sunday, beginning on July 14, we have...

    Wally Martin Memorial Meet, featuring the 3 Meter individual competition and the 1 Meter Synchro competition.
    Cracker Jack Meet, the large meet experience with modified rule sets for developing divers of all ages.
    Division Championship Meets, (a.k.a "Divisionals") the meets where individual division champions are crowned and where divers qualify for...
    All Stars, the final event of the season.

    Information on Wally Martin, Cracker Jack and All Stars can be found on this website in the document library under the "NVSL Dive Meet Championship Information" folder. Please read this information carfully as it contains the latest information on elegibility, registration and rules for those meets. Wally Martin and Cracker Jack, in particular, follow different requirements and rule sets than the regular Tuesday night meets. The 3 Meter event and All Stars require registration on divemeets.com.  

    If you have any questions about any of those meets, contact info can be found in the documents referenced here.

    The Division Championship meets are managed by each of the eight division coordinators. They will work directly with the team reps on those meets.

    We’ll be kicking off the 2019 season this Sunday at 8:30am at Arlington Forest Pool, located at 5401 N. Carlin Springs Rd. in Arlington.  Coffee and light refreshments will be provided.  When you arrive, please pick up your bag of meet materials at the top entrance so you can stick it in your car before heading down the hill to the meeting.  If you ordered B meet ribbons, you will pick those up here as well.  They are 10 cents each, and can be paid for by check made out to NVSL Dive.  Cash is ok, but please have exact change.  


    All dive reps should make every effort to attend this important meeting.  If you cannot attend, please send someone from your pool to pick up your bag of dive meet essentials.  You will need everything in this bag to host a meet.


    I’m attaching a link here to some materials that will be helpful to review before the meeting:  



    There is an agenda, the minutes from the last meeting, the referee expiring certification list, score reporting instructions, flyers for the Wally Martin and All-Star meets, and both the participant and team rep insurance waivers.  Please review the minutes before the meeting so we can vote on their approval shortly after we begin.


    We’ll keep the meeting portion fairly brief so we can start the clinics by 9:45.  Please encourage folks from your teams to attend these clinics.  If you are a new team rep or you have a new meet secretary, the table worker clinic is for you!  You will leave much less stressed, knowing how to run a meet and report the scores.  If you need more judges on your team, ask some team parents to attend the judging clinic.  It’s really thorough and includes lots of practice scoring actual divers.  Your newbie judges will gain the confidence they need to help you at those A meets.  These clinics will ensure that your volunteers are trained and ready before the dual meets begin.

  • Team Rep Meeting

    Tue, 2-26-2019 | Lynn Clark

    Hello Team Reps,

    Our meeting is this Sunday, 3/3 from 1pm-3pm at the Arlington Central Library (1015 N. Quincy St.). We will be meeting in the Donnellan Auditorium, which is to your right as you enter the first set of doors from the back entrance. I recommend parking in the back parking lot (enter from 10th St.) for easiest access. The library opens at 1, so you will not be able to get in any earlier than that.

    We have a lot to cover at this meeting, including proposed rule changes. We hope to have every team represented as we vote on these. Teams will also be receiving their dues and insurance assessments and reviewing insurance requirements for the upcoming season. The agenda and handouts for our meeting can be found at this link:


    See you all Sunday,

  • Crackerjack Timeline and Volunteer Schedule

    Thu, 7-19-2018 | Arlene Pripeton

    In the link below, you can find the estimated timeline for Crackerjack and the assignments for judges and tableworkers.  If you volunteered to work and are not on the list, please stop by the tables whenever you are available to see if someone did not show up and if we need additional help.  With the potential weather, we need this meet to run fast and smoothly.  Please have your divers and workers there well before the estimated times because a lot of divers don't show up (especially in this weather), and the meet will probably run early.   Please be sure to let all your judges and table workers know when they are assigned and try to find replacements if someone cannot make their assigned time.  We do our best to assign people when they ask, but everyone wants early in the morning and no one wants later in the afternoon.  See everyone on Sunday!

  • Wally Martin Update

    Sat, 7-14-2018 | Lynn Clark

    I know many of you have been waiting for the official estimated timeline for tomorrow.  At long last, here it is.

    Wally Martin Timeline

    Please advise your divers to be at Oak Marr at least a half hour before their warm-up starts, so they have time to register and make any needed changes to their sheets.  We will try to have the NVSL Dive twitter updated periodically so that you all can follow the progress of the meet.  This timeline is only an estimate, and things may move slower or faster.

    I am aware that there were problems with Junior 3M online dive sheets.  Unfortunately, I didn’t find out until 20 minutes before registration closed that the software was not allowing jumps and entries per our new rules.  I was assured these changes had been made, but they were not.  I apologize for the frustration.  It's now fixed, so we’ll be able to take changes at check-in tomorrow.  If you would like to email me your changes today, I’ll try to get as many of them in as possible.  Please emphasize to your divers that they really do need to check the dives that are entered for them when they check in on deck. 

    Hospitality at this event will be provided for officials only, since they will be there all day, and we have limited funds for refreshments. So please make sure your coaches know to bring food or make other arrangements to eat.  Oak Marr does have a smoothie bar upstairs, which I am told will be open starting at 9 a.m. 

    Good luck to all your divers, especially those trying these events for the first time! 

    See you tomorrow

    Week 2 - July 3

    Week 1 - June 26

    The results for previous weeks (Week 1) are final, don't foget that there are tabs along the bottom where you can view the detailed results for each division.

    The results for the current week (Week 2) can be viewed in real-time as they are entered Tuesday night, and are typically finalized sometime Wednesday morning. Once they are finalized, the team scores will be added to the Schedule/Results tab, but indivual scores will only be available in the links here.

    Good luck!

  • Week One is here!

    Mon, 6-25-2018 | Vanessa Flory

    We hope that everyone is excited for the first A Meet of the 2018 season. Right now the weather looks good for Tuesday evening!

    The dive meet sheets that were handed out at the meeting have caused a little confusion. The first dive must be a forward dive or front fall in. The forward dive may be performed in straight, pike, or tuck (designated by A,B,C or S,P,T). The front fall in does not have a position attributed to it.

    We have uploaded a new dive meet sheet to the documents section of the NVSL website, https://dive.mynvsl.com/documents, under number 5, "Dive Officials Information & Meet Support Materials".  This meet sheet should make it easy for announcers. You may use the tablets provided or print out the new sheet.

    We have also posted an electronic fillable meet sheet. When a dive number is typed the sheet will populate the dive description and DD. This is another option available for you to use.

    Good luck on week 1!

  • Week 1 Scoreboard

    Mon, 6-25-2018 | Thomas Joyce

    Just like last year, you will be able to see the results as they are entered in real time by the team representatives. Note that scores are not finalized until they have been reviewed by both team reps, the division coordinator and other league officials. Once official, the status will change to "Finalized" and the team scores will be carried into the standings table.

    Coaches Clinics
    Please let your coaches know that there are two coaches’ clinics being offered for the 2018 NVSL Diving season. The first clinic, given by NVSL Diving, is being held at 4 PM on June 2nd at Arlington Forest pool. It’s important for your coaches to attend to get up to date information on safety, insurance, rules, working with League officials, and the operation of the League. This clinic is geared to both experienced and newer dive coaches.  This clinic is free of charge.

    The second clinic is being offered by Stephanie Sutton, the head of Dominion Dive Club and renowned US Diving national level professional coach from 11:30 AM to 1 PM on Saturday June 16th at Oak Marr pool.  This clinic will instruct on the elements of dive coaching from the perspective of summer league programs. This program is geared to our newer and lesser experienced coaches in NVSL Diving.  There is a fee associated with this clinic.  Pls see the flyer here for more information. THIS CLINIC IS NOW FULL

    These clinics are NOT interchangeable. The first clinic is an NVSL Diving orientation clinic and the second an opportunity for learning basic coaching skills from a professional dive coach.

  • NVSL Diving Meet Results

    Wed, 7-19-2017 | Kate Walter

    Beginning with our fourth dual meet on Tuesday July 18, we will be showing meet results as they are entered by team reps.  Please note that the scores are not final until they have been reviewed by both team reps and the divison corrdinator.  After those reviews are complete, an NVSL diving EXCOM member changes the status to "finalized" and the scores will be carried over to the standings table.

    After a meet score has been finalized, if you have questions or concerns about a specific diver entry please contact your team rep to resolve the issue.  If your team rep cannot handle the request, s/he will escalate as appropriate.  Thanks!
