Membership

Membership

Membership in the Teaneck Swim Club is now open to all, regardless of residency. If we come close to capacity, Teaneck residents will have priority. Dues and fees for 2021 will be the same for everyone, regardless of residency.

All dues include sales tax and are based on the size of the family unit. All family units must reside in the same residence and include one or two adults. The three size categories are:

  • Single (one adult): $450
  • Family of 2 (at least one adult): $575
  • Family of 3 to 6 (one or two adults and their children 25 and under): $675
    • Each additional adult over 25 living in the same residence: $200
    • Caregiver (regardless of residence): $200
    • Each additional child aged 25 or under living in the same residence: $100
    • Each additional grandchild 12 or under (regardless of residence): $100

There are a limited number of senior memberships. Seniors pay the same dues but are not required to have a bond.
Senior memberships are at capacity at this time.

All other memberships must either be bonded or pre-bonded. The bond represents an ownership interest and is in the amount of $500 and is eligible to be refunded (using bond and pre-bond payments from new members) when membership is resigned in writing before March 25th in accordance with the Teaneck Swim Club Bylaws. In order to reduce the burden of paying the bond, it can be paid in $125 payments over the course of four years. Members who have not completed their bond payments are considered pre-bonded members, and their partial bonds are not refundable in the event of resignation prior to becoming fully bonded. Only bonded members can vote at membership meetings, and serve on the Board of Trustees. Currently, our bylaws and the terms of our lease do not allow non-residents of Teaneck to be voting members or serve on the Board. We are working to change that, but until and unless we succeed, the bond and pre-bond payments of non-residents are considered “bond equivalents.” The refund rules for “bond equivalents” are the same as the refund rules for bonds. New members who pay their bond or pre-bond in full with their first-year dues, will receive a one-time $50 reduction in dues for the first year.

Renewals for Existing Members

Renewal dues for existing members are the same as for new members. Returning unbonded or partially bonded members can choose to become bonded or pre-bonded but must add at least 125 and reach 250, 375 or 500. This includes returning members who were made partial bond payments in the past, Season Pass holders who did not have bonds, and extended families living in multiple residences in Teaneck but sharing a single bond. Returning members with no bond such as Season Pass holders or members joining for the first time in 2020, will be treated as new members and are eligible for the one-time $50 reduction in dues for the first year if they pay the bond in full. New for 2021, all returning members will have the option to pay half by March 25th, and half by May 15th.

Applications for New Members

Anyone wishing to apply for membership in the Teaneck Swim Club is invited to write to the Teaneck Swim Club, P.O. Box 148, Teaneck, NJ 07666 requesting an application. Applications are available via download here, and will also be available at the Teaneck Swim Club once it opens for the 2021 season. Completed applications should be mailed to the address shown in the application with a check for the membership fees.

New for 2020, and continuing forward: Membership can be frozen for a $200 fee. This means that a member can skip a year of dues payment and club usage without resigning by paying a $200 freeze fee. If dues have already been paid but it is before opening day, dues will not be refunded, but the balance after the $200 freeze fee will be credited to the dues for the following year. You must notify the club in writing or by email, and if you have not already paid dues, you must remit the $200 fee. Your bond cannot be used as a source of the fee.
