After almost 10 years with the same URL, Oregon Swimming has launched its new website and web address, www.oregonswimming.org. Over the next couple of days we will be redirecting all traffic from the old address to the new one. Current oregonswim.org email addresses will continue to work for at least a year. However, we encourage you to start using the new addresses as soon as possible. During the transition, some disruption in email traffic may occur, however we anticipate the total disruption to be minor.
We hope you enjoy the new look of the website and as always, feel free to send your comments and suggestions to us.
