We have developed a Member Handbook to answer many questions about the club, including rules & bylaws, culture, logistics, and other information.
- April 1: Deadline for notification of terminating membership or suspension of membership for the upcoming season. Notify Membership Chair directly.
- May 1: Deadline for payment of annual dues. Late fees of $10 per day are assessed after May 1. Failure to pay annual dues by May 15 may lead to involuntary termination of membership.
A Dues Notice is sent annually after the Membership Meeting held in early March. The form will be sent by email and will contain options for payment. The online form must be returned in addition to payment. Deadline for dues is always May 1.
If you have not received the Dues Notice or emails from the club before April 1, please contact the Membership Chair.
Emails can get caught in spam filters. We do everything we can on our end to stop this from happening, but the best way to prevent it is for you to add our email (the members email above) to your Contacts or Address Book and mark us as a Safe Sender in your email program. This will help ensure that your email program knows you want to see our emails.
Seasonal Membership Suspension:
Current members may suspend their membership a season at a time by notifying the Membership Chair by April 1. If membership is able to fill the summer suspension with someone from the waitlist then no annual dues will be owed for the suspended year and the member will not have club privileges. The member will remain part of the club and will be able to continue again as a member the next year once the next year’s dues are paid. Memberships are eligible for two suspensions total.
Suspended memberships are offered to those at the top of the waiting list after vacant memberships are filled for the season. Those who wish to be considered as a seasonal member must join the regular waiting list by filling out the application for new members linked on the Prospective Member page.
Members wishing to relinquish their membership in Southwest Swim Club must provide notice to the Membership Chair by April 1. The Membership Chair will request the return of the Membership Certificate that was issued when the member joined. These certificates have been issued to all members since the club began. If the certificate cannot be found, a formal letter with signature must be sent instead.
This is a permanent relinquishment. To join again, relinquished members must fill out the application, pay the application fee, and join the waiting list for a vacant membership. If a member wants to relinquish membership for only one season, please see the Seasonal Membership Suspension section below.
Questions/comments, please contact the Membership Chair.
