Special Perks:

EQUITY MEMBERSHIP

Equity Members are our members who have chosen to invest and become owners of the Swim Club.  Each equity member family has committed to this investment, by purchasing a one time share fee ($750). This reduces the annual cost of summer membership by 20%, swim lessons, swim and dive team fees, guest fees (50%) and more. To keep an equity membership in good standing, annual summer dues will be paid. These annual summer dues will be 20% less than the non equity summer dues. We are able to determine our budget based on our equity membership. These members commit to being lifetime members of the pool. Equity members are also voting members and will assist the board in the decision making for the Swim Club.

  • 22% discount in annual summer fees

WHY EQUITY MEMBERSHIP?

  • Helps provide Sherwood with an adequate capital base and for you, ownership!
  • An equity ownership’s purpose is to assist Sherwood in meeting member needs. Sherwood invests it to better meet our member needs. Meeting our members needs takes capital.
  • Low cost way of building capital and less risky than depending on earnings or owing a bank.
  • You are investing in the future of Sherwood Swim Club.  This ensures the pool will continue to operate, build capital and make needed improvements.

NON-EQUITY MEMBERSHIP

Non-Equity Members join the pool summer to summer and pay the annual summer dues. Although committed to supporting the Swim Club, just join from year to year. We are unable to base our budget on these, because of not knowing who will join from season to season.

  • 7% discount for dive team fee
  • 17% discount in swim lesson fee ($125 for 5-30 minute private lessons)
  • May host parties ($20 after hours fee, lifeguard fees TBD)

  • Everyone in your household is a member
    • Grandma too, if she lives with you
