What does it cost to purchase a Bonded Membership at the Ridge Swim Club?
The cost to purchase a bond membership at the Ridge is $1,100.00. The breakdown of the membership fee is as follows; $1,000 bond fee and $100 non-refundable Special Assessment. This year, 2021, the $200 non-refundable initiation fee will be waived for all new bond purchases.
The bond fee is refunded, upon termination of your membership, in accordance with the Bylaws. Each new bond sold will result in one terminating bond being refunded, provided the active membership is 335 or higher. Bond refunds are held if active membership drops below 335.
The Main Pool had to be replastered in spring, 2019. The Membership owns the Club; all bonded members incurred an Assessment Fee in the amount of $300.00 in 2019 to cover the cost of replastering the Main Pool. The Assessment Fee was spread over a three year period, $100.00 annually. This year, 2021, is the third and final year that the Assessment will be collected and is included in the membership fee.
Therefore, the cost to become a bonded member is $1,100.00, bond fee and assessment fee. In addition to the membership fees there are Annual Dues. Annual dues are funds that are used to operate the pool.
Annual Dues are determined each year after the Board of Directors review the cost of operating the facility and set a budget.
The Club is owned by the Membership; therefore, the Board of Directors attempts to keep the Annual Dues to a minimum. Dues must be paid by 2nd Friday of March each year.
The Club recognizes that not every household requires a “family” membership. The Club is excited to announce that we are now offering two additional membership options.
We are now offering Single Memberships and Double Memberships, in addition to our traditional Family Membership.
2021 SINGLE Membership Annual Dues: $275.00, only one adult household member. Individual Memberships are designed to provide use of the facility by an individual that must be an adult, 18 years and older.
2021 DOUBLE Membership Annual Dues: $395.00, includes two household members. Double Memberships are designed to provide use of the facility by two household members, one of which must be an adult, 18 years and older.
2021 FAMILY Membership Annual Dues: $525.00, includes all members in your household. Family Memberships are designed to provide use of the facility by all members in the household.
Are there any other membership options?
We typically offer a limited number of Summer Memberships and Monthly Memberships. The Summer Membership allows you to use the facility from Memorial Day to Labor Day. The Monthly Memberships are valid June 1 – June 30, July 1 – July 31 and August 1 – September 7. The valid monthly membership dates cannot be deviated from the aforementioned dates.
These memberships are a trial membership to allow people to use the facility to see it is a good fit before making the financial commitment of becoming a Bonded Member.
The cost of a Summer Membership is $750.00 and the cost for the monthly membership are as follows; June $275.00, July $375.00 and August $375.00.
Single or Double Memberships are not available for Summer or Monthly Memberships.
We no longer offer a Payment Plan but we do accept credit card payment. All credit card payments are subject to a non-refundable convenience fee. This fee is based on the actual charges from the service provider. All credit card transactions are processed through our website, RidgeSwimClub.com
