Memberships are available in two forms - Bonded or Seasonal
Bonded members have purchased an "ownership share" in the club, and are issued a STRATFORD SWIM CLUB BOND CERTIFICATE. There is a one time purchase fee of $325. Active Member Bondholders may vote on issues affecting the club and be considered for election to the Board of Trustees. Because of the investment represented by the bond certificate purchase, Bondholders receive a membership cost savings; please refer to the prices listed above for the current year's Bonded membership dues. At this time we do not have bonds available for purchase.
Seasonal members do not hold ownership, cannot vote on club issues (budget, by-laws changes, loans, etc.) or hold board office. Please refer to the prices listed above for the current year's Seasonal membership dues.
Both forms of membership have 4 sub-types:
Family: 2 adults (married or unmarried, but must live under 1 roof), and all legal children of either/both adults (biological, foster, adopted, or of whom the adult has legal custody). A child who one adult has shared custody of may also be included in the family membership. All children must live in the same household and be under the age of 23.
Single Head of Household: 1 adult and all (children s described above) living in the household.
Couple: 2 adults living together (don't have to be married, but must live under 1 roof); no children.
Single: 1 individual, at least 14 years of age and not married.
Grandparents of Members: are allowed to use the pool free of charge, when are accompanied by a member; they are not issued their own membership cards, as they are considered guests.
Children 12 years of age and older are permitted to use the club without an adult family member present provided they follow the club rules. Violations of club rules can result in revocation of this privilege.
Babysitter: must be 14 years of age and if under 21 are not permitted to supervise more than 2 children. Members pay a $140 fee to use a babysitter who is NOT a club member. Members may also elect to pay the daily guest rate for their babysitter in lieu of the $140 flat rate. Members using non-member babysitters must pay either the flat or daily rate.
Babysat children: to accommodate members who act as babysitters for children who are NOT club members. If you are responsible for watching a child under the age of 12 over the summer, you may pay the babysat child fee of $115 per child. This will admit the child to the club when accompanied by the adult member who is the babysitter. Members may also elect to pay the daily guest rate for babysat children in lieu of the $115 flat rate. Members babysitting non-member children must pay either the flat or daily rate.
