Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What does it mean to become a member of the Willows?
A. The Willows Swim Club is a privately owned cooperative club, meaning that each bonded member (or family) owns part of the club. In accordance with our Bylaws, ownership is limited to 285 bonded family memberships, so each bonded family actually owns 1/285 of the club. Pre-memberships are offered to families waiting to become owners or who do not want to become owners. Other memberships are offered to former bonded owners who resign their memberships.
Q. How do I become a member of the Willows?
A. Registering to become a Willows owner means you would like to become an owner or other type of member. Each registrant must submit a completed and signed registration form along with a non-refundable $175 registration fee. If there is presently a waiting list for bonded ownership, new families will be offered a pre-membership (see below) so they can enjoy the club while waiting. As current owners resign, their bonded memberships are sold to new families who wish to become bonded owners.
Q. How much does a bond cost?
A. The bond costs $450 and is your ownership purchase in the Willows. It is a one-time (refundable) payment. In the future, if you resign from the Willows in accordance with the Bylaws, and your membership is in good standing, we will offer your bond to new families who are interested in the Willows. Once your bond is sold, we will issue you a bond refunded. Resignations are handled on a first come, first served basis and we cannot guarantee when your bond will sell.
Q. Are there other fees?
A. Yes. Every year, each bonded family must pay an annual maintenance fee which is due by April 1. Please see the Membership Fees page for the current fees.
Q. Are there membership types other than bonded memberships?
A. YES! Although becoming a bonded member is the most economical way to enjoy the Willows, we also offer 7-day and 5-day full summer memberships, as well as July and August only memberships - see below. We call these pre-memberships. Pre-memberships are only valid for one season and must be purchased each year.
