Still not sure? Try our trial membership!

The trial membership is $50 for 2 weeks of pool and tennis access, and is only for new members who are also eligible for the new member discount (i.e. brand new or nonmember for at least 5 years).

Key Points:

  • The trial member can convert to a $290 membership by paying just the difference ($240) at any point in the current summer.
  • The trial membership does NOT count as your swim team or shark school membership component. To register for swim team, you must either have a full membership or a swim team only membership. If you register children for shark school, they would still pay the nonmember price.
