become a dad's club member

As a membership-based, nonprofit organization, Dad’s Club provides a safe, diverse and welcoming environment for individuals and families alike. We offer an unparalleled tradition of excellence in swim programming for every level and age, from new learners to competitive athletes.

We count multiple generations of families among our members, and many of our members choose to renew their membership year over year. In our mission to make swim instruction accessible, we don’t require membership for swim lesson enrollment. Instead, the benefits of membership offer expanded facility access and a strong sense of community centered on swimming.

Membership is also key to the ongoing support of our facility, from maintenance and upkeep to operations and staffing. Your membership allows us to plan for the future, and to continue to serve the community for generations to come.

membership pricing

We offer year-round and summer memberships, with different pricing tiers for families, individuals and seniors. All membership options include access to our pools, aquatic programs, fitness center (for those 16 years of age and older), picnic pavilion and BBQ, plus discounts on swimming lessons for all ages.

summer membership

Join us for a summer season of fun! Our Surf & Sun membership was created to meet the needs of families with children in the City of Spring Valley Village and the surrounding area. Surf & Sun seasonal membership runs from May through August, providing access to Dad’s Club facilities during weekends in May; daily throughout June and July; and daily in August until school starts.

Geared toward families with children of all ages and swimming skills, our family pool provides the perfect place for young ones to splash in the beach-entry and shallows, while older kids show off their strokes in progressively deeper water.

We invite families to bring picnic baskets, grills and coolers and settle in for fun and relaxing family time. With a seasonal membership, you can also rent our family pool to celebrate a birthday or a special occasion. Our family pool is available for rent on Saturdays and Sundays during the summer. Rental sessions are two hours in duration and take place between 6:30pm and 10:00pm. Rental rates begin at $500, and additional lifeguard fees are based on the number and age of attendants.

Surf & Sun membership registration opens mid-April each year and membership is active May 4 - September 1: weekends only in May, daily June 1 - August 11 and weekends August 17 - September 1

Related Policies & Fees

A 60-day written notice is required to cancel membership. Please review our 60-Day Notice before finalizing your registration.

We charge a $25 convenience fee for all membership registrations. This is a pass-through fee that covers credit card and banking fees associated with billing. It is currently a one-time fee.

Energy surcharges are passed on to members during the winter months. Surcharges are based on actual energy charges and usage and ratified by a board of directors vote.

For the purposes of membership, family is defined as persons living in the same home with the same address on their driver's license. We consider each unit a nuclear family and not an extended family. If grandparents want to include their grandchildren in a summer family membership, we request that those grandchildren under the age of 19 be listed at the time of the registration. As a non-profit organization, we trust our members to be honest and fair about membership, paying for guests, and helping all club members maintain the value of their membership.

Seniors are defined as those age 65 and over.

Members should be advised of important Dad’s Club policies and procedures, including our Code of Conduct and our Concussion Policy.
