  • All members joining this season must sign a waiver to gain entry.  Click the link to read and sign the waiver. It must be brought with you the first day you attend. Each Parent/guardian/caregiver over 18 on your membership must sign for themselves and for their children/caregivers under 18.  COVID-19 WAIVER
  • As a reminder, SSC relies on our revenue from membership dues to pay for the operating expenses of the pool. All members are required to pay dues each season and this will be the expectation for the 2021 season. All dues will be required to be paid by Saturday, May 22nd to avoid a late fee of $75 (applies to all existing bond holders; late fee is not applied to new memberships received after the due date).
  • If you decide you want to take the season off, a Summer Away Membership fee of $100 will be required to keep your account in good standing.
  • Bond redemption requests are due by May 1, 2021 and will be reviewed at the May Board meeting. Bonds will be returned assuming your account is up to date and dues were paid in fill through the 2019 season. If we receive a large number of redemption requests, we may need to postpone payment until we ensure we have more new members than those requesting bonds back. Please email [email protected] with your name and mailing address to submit your redemption request.
  • There will be no refunds.

Full membership:

Full membership involves the purchase of an equity share (commonly referred to as the "bond") that permits voting so long as the member remains in good standing (dues paid in full). The cost of the Share is $480. It is a one-time-only purchase required to obtain full membership status. A one-time $150 Initiation Fee is also due when purchasing a full membership. 

Associate Membership: 


This option may be offered once to prospective members for a fee of $100 (the "Associate Membership Fee") plus payment of annual dues and the one-time $150 Initiation Fee, but not the full payment of the par value of a share of stock. An Associate Member has all usage rights for 1 year, but may not vote.

If the Associate Member purchases a share of stock the following season, the Associate Membership Fee will be credited toward that purchase. If the Associate Member does not purchase a share of stock the next season, the Associate Membership fee then is forfeited. 

NOTE: All members are required to pay all required dues annually to remain in good standing. Owed dues will be deducted from bond repayment. Bond redemption can be accomplished by e-mailing [email protected] and are paid out 2x per year (May and September). There is only one exception, a limited "summer away option" in which a member requests a leave status for one year and pays a fee of $100 for the season. This "summer away" option is typically limited to five families per year and is available on a first-come, first served basis.

All members listed on a membership must reside in the same residence. 
There must be at least one member 18 years of age or older included on the membership. 
Seniors must be 65 years of age by opening day in order to obtain senior rate.
Any children over the age of 12 months by opening day should be included in the dues. 

A babysitter pass can be added on at any time before or during the season.
