ENTERING A SWIM MEET
Copies of the meet information can be found in the front of the team file box at the pool. Do not remove any of the copies from the pool, as all Texas Gold team members must use them to sign up for a swim meet. Use a blank meet entry form, which can also be found in the team file box to enter the meet. Make all entry fees checks payable to Panther Aquatic Club and place it along with your meet entry form in the file marked completed meet entries.
TEXAS GOLD WEB PAGE
We have recently redesigned our website, the URL is still http://texasgoldswimming.org. The new site is interactive and last week I sent a bulk e-mail to all active members with a password so you can access your account. Please change the password once you have gained access to the site. If you did not receive an e-mail, please let me know. Several of the new features include online event/meet sign up and access to meet results data for your swimmers. I am also learning the new system and will alert you to any other features you might find beneficial, as I become aware of them.

Texas Gold Swimming has a new team stats link, which allows you to access our team manager database and see your swimmers top times, meet results, as well as their entries for upcoming meets. You can find the link on our website.
