  • Can I pay for membership on a monthly basis?

Yes – however, the membership is based on a full year so you are required to make 12 monthly payments (with the exception of the Snowbird Membership.)  You can also pay for the year in full with a 5% discount.

  • Can I pay for the Fitness Center or Pool only?

No, a membership includes use of the entire building which we hope will add value to your experience.

  • Once I become a member, can I upgrade or downgrade my membership?

Upgrade your membership by adding on immediate family members. You would pay the difference of the initiation fee as well as the dues.  Downgrade your membership by taking away members. There is a $25 administrative fee and your dues will be adjusted accordingly.

Please note: You may not upgrade to a family membership for just the summer and downgrade in the fall.

Contact the Membership Services Department for details.  

  • Can I put my membership on hold?

Memberships can be placed on an Inactive Status for personal (1-3 months) or medical (unlimited time) reasons for a rate of $25-$45 per month depending on the type of membership .  Monthly Dues memberships will be replaced by monthly Inactive Dues thus keeping your 12 month contract intact. Paid in Full memberships will be charged in full the Inactive Dues Rate multiplied by the # of months out on Inactive Status.  Those corresponding months will be added onto the end of the contract year.

  • What happens if I want to cancel my membership prior to the one year agreement?.

There are three ways in which to cancel your membership prior to the one year agreement with proof, 30 days notice and, a category-based fee of $25-$45 – 1) If you relocate geographically, 2) have a medical issue, or, 3) have a financial issue.   You can speak with Membership if you should have an extenuating circumstance.
