What is a bond?

The bond is a one-time purchase.  Once you are a bonded member, you are responsible only for the seasonal fees.  At the current bond rate of $299, if you plan to be a member for more than 4 seasons, the bond offers a yearly savings over the yearly non-bonded fee of $75 per year.

What are the advantages of being a bonded member versus a non-bonded member?

There are many perks to becoming a bonded member.

When are dues to be paid prior to the season?

We encourage members to pay their dues as early as possible by offering an incentive. If dues are paid between October 1 and March 1 for the next year, the $50 maintenance fee is waived. Membership dues are to be paid prior to May 1. We are willing to work with members individually to structure payment plans.

What about guest passes?

We offer two guest pass options:

  1. A 10 guest pass booklet for $50. Multiple passes may be used in one day, and multiple booklets can be sold to you throughout the season. Guest passes are only good for one season, and are not transferable.

  2. A Wild Card. A Wild Card is a seasonal pass allowing one guest per day when a member of your family is present. This pass costs $100 for the season. We also offer a nanny pass for the same price, which allows one babysitter entry for the season without living in your household.

Is the club open to the public?

The swim club is a private club. Guests are only allowed admission with a member in good standing.
