Membership

Think of your membership card like a ticket, always present it upon entering and keep it with you while you’re at the Sports Center.

Changes – You’re welcome to add or subtract family members from your membership. To do this, complete a Membership Change Form available at the front desk. Members who pay by automatic draft must submit this form five days before the next scheduled draft so changes can be implemented in the same month. Charges for upgrades will be pro-rated to your account. If you reach an age that will change your membership category, you will be given at least 30 days’ notice of the change.

Insufficient funds – A $25 service fee is attached to insufficient checks and EFTs.

Guest passes – GSC members ages 18+ can bring a maximum of two guests per visit. Guests must be accompanied by a member. Each guest may visit two times per calendar year for free. After the guest’s two free visits a $10 per visit fee will apply.

Termination – You can end your membership at any time. If you wish to terminate your membership, please complete a cancellation form available at the front desk. The form must be submitted regardless of whether you pay by automatic draft or by invoice. Members who pay by automatic draft must submit the cancellation form at least five days before the scheduled draft to ensure cancellation is effective by that draft.

If you pre-paid semi-annually or annually, you will be refunded for the unused portion of your membership minus a service charge. Refunds are not available if paying on a monthly basis.
