Working Exes for Texas Swimming

Welcome!

WETS was organized in 1968 when a group of former Longhorn swimmers, divers and coaches, headed by Tex Robertson, met to promote University of Texas aquatic excellence. The initial goals of WETS were to: Honor the past accomplishments of UT swimmers and divers; Promote the present and future success of Texas Swimming and Diving; and to Provide a common forum for all former Texas swimmers, divers, coaches and fans to gather and stay connected.

After nearly 50 years of success, along with UT’s 55 conference and 19 national championships, the goals of WETS remain the same: To Honor, Promote and Provide.

Become a part of WETS and Longhorn Swimming and Diving’s storied past, celebrated present, and glorious future!

WETS was organized to help Texas and UT Swimming for men and women at all levels. Membership is open to any and all friends of UT aquatics (parents, UT employees, students, swimmers, and non-swimmers from everywhere). You’re invited to “get WET”! Join this group, which feels real happiness is TEXAS being No. 1 in swimming!
