What is the difference between a trial membership and a full membership?
Full Membership comes with the purchase of a membership (currently $2000 buy-in) in addition to annual dues. The membership buy-in can be paid in one lump sum or in installments over 3 years. Full Members have full voting rights and are permitted to use the pool during the regular season and during the shoulder seasons. Once the full membership buy-in is complete, Full Memberships are transferrable, with a $100 transfer fee, and can be rented.
Limited Trial Memberships may be offered by the Board from time to time, provided there are any memberships owned by the swim club or memberships that are currently in arrears, but, in no event may the number of full memberships and rentals exceed the maximum number of allowable memberships. Memberships rented by the Board will be listed as Limited Trial Memberships, which are available for a maximum of 2 consecutive years. Limited Trial Memberships are offered at a cost of the annual dues plus an additional administrative fee to be determined by the Board.
How do I sell my membership?
For Full Members wishing to sell, full memberships can be transferred or sold (with the payment of a $100 transfer fee) with the sale of your home, to a buyer of your choice, or be listed for sale by the pool. Full Memberships are not available for transfer/sale until the entire membership buy-in is complete. Please coordinate with the Treasurer [link] to coordinate the transfer of your membership and the payment of the transfer fee. Transfers are not complete until they have been recorded with the Treasurer. If you wish to have your membership listed for sale by the pool, please contact the Membership Board Member [link] to place your name on the for sale list. Members are responsible for annual dues until the membership has been sold. Any unpaid dues will be deducted from the buy-in amount returned upon sale.
Can I rent my membership?
Full Members may rent their membership for the season upon notification of the board. All use rights for the season transfer to the renter and may not be concurrently used by the member or any allowable guests under that membership. Membership rentals MUST be coordinated through the Treasurer.
Can I find my own buyer for my membership?
Yes. Members are encouraged to find their own buyer if they wish to sell their membership. Memberships can also be sold with your home. Full Memberships are not available for transfer/sale until the entire membership buy-in is complete. Please coordinate with the Treasurer [link] to coordinate the transfer of your membership and the payment of the transfer fee. Transfers are not complete until they have been recorded with the Treasurer.
Can I transfer my membership to a family member?
Yes. Memberships can be assigned to a family member with the payment of a $100 transfer fee. Please coordinate with the Treasurer to complete the membership transfer.
What happens if I don’t pay my annual dues?
As a member-owned facility, we rely on the annual dues to maintain and manage the pool. All dues must be current in order to use the pool facilities. Any membership in arrears for 3 consecutive years will return to the board at the end of the 3rd summer and the membership will terminate without return of the membership buy-in remainder. You can coordinate with the Treasurer to bring your membership current. Please do NOT use the facility until your membership dues are current.
