Rental equipment is NOT automatically included with Membership. Since most members have their own gear, we didn’t want to charge for stuff you might not want. If you need to rent gear, you can either add-on another $40/mo. (or $35 for all EFT accounts) for monthly Harness, Shoes, and Chalkbag rental, or you can rent them daily.

FAQ

What kind of memberships do you offer?

We offer Paid in Full memberships, as well as Auto-bill memberships. All memberships have the same benefits, but only Annual PIF and Auto-bill memberships also allow for members to invoice purchases to their account to be billed monthly, as long as the member has provided monthly billing information.

How do I sign up for a membership?

You can sign up for a membership either online, or at our Front Desk. You need to know what kind of a membership you want (Individual, 2-Person, or Family), as well as how you want to pay (Monthly Auto-bill, or Prepaid). We offer discounts on membership if you’re a member of the Active Military, Actively Enrolled College Student, 1st Responder, Senior Citizen, Nurse or Teacher. Before applying the discount however, we will need to verify your status as one of these categories.

What documentation do I need to verify my eligibility for a membership discount?

2-Person and Family memberships require Proof of Household.

Modern families come in all shapes and sizes- so rather than dealing with that, we’d rather just make sure everyone lives under the same roof!

  • IDs showing shared domicile
  • Bills, Pay stubs, and other official letters showing the same address. Please take care to black out any sensitive information. We are ONLY looking to verify shared addresses.
  • This proof must be verified Annually.

You only list Auto-bill pricing as EFT, but you also allow ACH billing- why?

To make things simple and easy to understand, we wanted to only show EFT pricing since that’s the base price for all monthly auto-bill memberships. If a member chooses to provide ACH Bank Draft info instead of Credit Card info, we will extend an additional 5% Discount on all Membership Dues.

I have a 2-Person/Family membership. Will Cancelling/Freezing any single account affect the others?

Only for Auto-bill memberships. Cancelling/Freezing either the Primary or the Secondary will cause all lower accounts to “bump up” and fill the rate gap that would otherwise be created. An example: If the Smith family has three accounts (A [$79.00], B [$34.50], and C [$20.00] ), and the Primary (A) is Cancelled or Frozen, then Account B becomes the new Primary Account causing B’s rate to increase from $34.50 to $79.00, and C becomes the new Secondary account causing C’s rate to increase from $20.00 to $34.50 until account A is reinstated as the Primary. All Frozen Auto-bill accounts will incur a cost of $10 per month while frozen..

What if I need to Freeze or Cancel my membership?

For all Prepaid Memberships:

  • Freezes go into effect immediately for the date requested, but must be frozen for a minimum of one month. For any days left on the account, the termination will be moved back in time, equal to the length of the Freeze.
  • Cancellations are not recommended because PIF memberships do not auto-renew. Even if cancelled, no refund will be issued, as all PIF membership sales are final. In the event that a member still wishes to cancel, they will still have full access to the facility for the remaining time paid.

For all Auto-bill Memberships:

  • Cancellations and Freezes are handled in the same way. All Cancellation/Freeze requests must be submitted in writing (or through our online Membership Change form) before the end of the month preceding the billing period for which the Cancellation/Freeze are wanted to be in effect. Specifically, because billing is run monthly on the 15th, if a Cancellation/Freeze request is submitted, it must be submitted before the 1st day of the new month to allow time for processing before the 15th, when billing is run. An example would be that John wishes to cancel his membership for the May billing cycle. He must submit his request by April 30th at the latest, in order for it to go into effect on May 15th.
  • All Frozen Auto-bill accounts will incur a cost of $10 per month while frozen.
