TEXAS GOLD WEB PAGE
We have recently redesigned our website, the URL is still http://texasgoldswimming.org. The new site is interactive and I will be sending all new team members an e-mail with a password so you can access your account. Please change the password once you have gained access to the site. If you do 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.
