2011 Membership Options Remain Similar to Current Ones

New, But Similar Membership Options and Dues for 2011

After several months of negotiating fees, crunching numbers, evaluating costs, considering team members’ needs and crunching more numbers, the Board announces the 2011 WCM Membership Options and Dues. These changes will take effect January 1, 2011. 

2011 WCM Membership Options and Dues

  • WCM Platinum Plus – Includes WCM membership, Pac Masters membership, and an annual pool pass for Team workouts; paid in a single payment at the start of the year. Cost: $900, one-time payment.

  • WCM Platinum – Includes WCM membership, Pac Masters membership, continuous monthly pool passes for Team workouts; paid monthly with electronic payment. Cost $80 per month, for 12 months.  (Includes processing fee of ~ $3.)

  • WCM Basic Purple – Includes WCM membership, Pac Masters membership, 15 count workout pass purchased as needed**  Cost: $270 initial fee, plus $60 for each 15 count workout pass.  (** 15 count workout pass will be docked for Saturday workouts and team workouts at other pools.
  • WCM Lilac – Includes WCM half-year membership beginning in June, Pac Masters membership,15 count workout pass. Cost: $162 initial fee, plus $60 for each 15 count workout pass
  • WCM Pearl – Includes WCM associate membership, Pac Masters membership, and no pool admissions. This is designed for members who live out of the area and do not workout with the Team: Cost: $95 per year.
2011 represents a trial year to implement this funding model.  The goals of this structure were to provide stable revenue for whole teams costs and flexibility for individual members.  Evaluation of this plan's effectiveness will be an on-going process.  Note that membership dues include coaching and pool admission for workouts.  It is vital that members keep their passes active through WCM, rather than paying pool entry fees at the door. 

This effort could not have been done without the time, work and collaboration among dedicated Board members, nor could it have been done without the feedback and continual support of the team's individual members.  WCM's unified coordination is truly one of its greatest strengths.
