Pac-12 Networks Won’t Broadcast Any Regular Season Swim Meets in 2019-2020

The Pac-12 Networks won’t televise any regular-season swim meets in the 2019-2020 season for the first time in at least 4 years. The networks will continue to air live coverage for both the women’s and men’s swimming and diving championships. The women’s swimming & diving championships, and the men’s diving championships, will run from February 26th-29th in Federal Way, Washington. The men’s swimming championship will run a week later, from March 4th-7th, also in Federal Way.

In the 2016-2017 season, the networks aired 3 regular season meets (Stanford vs. USC, Arizona State vs. Arizona, and Stanford vs. Cal); in the 2017-2018 season, the networks aired the USA College Challenge; and last season the networks aired the Stanford vs. Cal women’s meet. In the 2012-2013 season, coverage peaked with 4 regular season dual meet broadcasts in addition to the Pac-12 Championship meets.

The absence of a regular season meet comes in spite of the conference being home to both of the NCAA Division I Conference Champions: the Stanford women and the Cal men.

Last year, there was additional live-streaming coverage of big meets, and that’s expected to continue this year (though the Pac-12 Network hasn’t made any specific schedules for that).

The networks will air 19 regular season competitions in women’s gymnastics, 4 regular season competitions in wrestling, an Arizona State hockey game, the Cal vs. Stanford men’s gymnastics meet, 4 rugby games, and several men’s volleyball matches in its winter coverage.

The Pac-12 Network, which is actually a series of local networks and one national network, was announced on July 27th, 2011 and launched on August 15th, 2012.
