Member Procedures
You will be required to scan your membership card each time you enter the pool.  Please make sure your online membership profile is accurate for your family. Even if you paid by check you MUST do this for your membership card to work on opening day.  The directions are included below.
If you forget your card, you will need to give the guards your membership number.  Your member number is located on the back of your membership card and was included on your invoice.  Also, these cards are yours to keep during your membership. It is $5 to replace them.  And keep them after the summer ends and use them next year. You may also want to try to use a smartphone application (ex: KeyChain) so you have a back-up.
Activate Membership Profile
ALL Members are required to visit the website and establish your membership profile before the pool opens.  The only way you will be permitted to sign up for reservations slots and enter the pool is if this information is filled out.  If you paid via PayPal, this should have already been done.  If you paid by check, you will need to complete this part.
