Online store is launched!

It's been a long time coming, and we finally have a way to offer BGS-themed items for sale! Thanks to's Team Store option, we can offer all kinds of swim suits, clothing, tools, and other gear -- some with the option of being personalized with the BGS logo and/or your name.  Check out the Black Girls Swim store!

One great benefit of this is that when you shop at through our special link you will get a 10% discount, a portion of the proceeds comes back to BGS AND you get free shipping on orders over $49. You are not limited to purchasing only the items with our logo; as long as you are accessing SwimOutlet through our special link, you'll get these perks on anything they sell.

Right now, we have a swimsuit, towels, a backpack, and a t-shirt among the available items with our logo. Check them out, as well as all of the other swim-related stuff they have for sale!

Finally!  After several years of being a vibrant, active group of over 1,100 women on Facebook, we now have a website!  Well, really, it's a blog but in my humble opinion and experience blogs are easier to maintain. I learned to create websites using HTML in 1996 -- we've come a LONG way! More functionality will be added soon, and among the improvements should be a shopping cart for buying BGS merchandise. For now, though, head over to Lock Journey to purchase BGS swim caps in 3 sizes.

Stay tuned for more!
