Both residents and non-residents of Western Springs are eligable to become members of the WSSC.
You are considered a new member if this is your first year joining the Western Springs Service Club or if your previous membership has lapsed by two or more consecutive summers. As a new member, you are subject to a Capital Improvement Assessment.
For the 2019 season ALL new non-resident memberships will be added from our existing wait list. As we receive our returning memberships, we will begin to add new non-resident memberships from our wait list. If you are not already on our wait list you can be sign up to be on our waitlist via Google Docs.
CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT ASSESSMENT (CIA)
All new members are subject to pay a one time (see restrictions below) fee for the improvement of the pools and facilities.
The CIA is a one time fee paid the first year of a new membership. If a member takes off 2 or more consecutive summers they will then be considered a new member and pay the CIA again.
PROOF OF FAMILY MEMBERS
New members will be required to show birth certificates for children under the age of 18 and may be required to show residency by ID for children over the age of 18. Children over the age of 18 on the account may be asked to show ID to verify residence at address listed on the membership.
You are considered a returning member if you had a membership the prior summer and/or two summers prior. (You are allowed a one summer lapse.) If two years have lapsed since your last membership, you are considered a New Member and are subject to the CIA described above. Any additions or changes to your account may require additional documentation.
You reside within the village limits of Western Springs. You will be required to show proof of Western Springs residency in the form of a government ID, ie Illinois driver’s license or state ID card, vehicle registration, voter registration ID card.
NON - RESIDENT
You reside outside the village limits of Western Springs. The board reserves the right to limit the number of NEW non-resident memberships each year, generally 20 New non-residents per year. As a non-resident you must join our waitlist to be considered.
The member must be at least 12 years old as of January 1 of the year of the membership.
This is for immediate family members including kids up the age of 25 who all reside in the residence listed. Any extended family that may be listed must be able to show this is their legal, permanent address via their Illinois driver’s license, state ID, vehicle registration or voter registration card.
INDIVIDUAL OVER 60
This a discounted individual membership for anyone over the age of 60.
This is the best option for an adult couple in the same residence who either have no kids, kids have grown and left the home, or the kids are no longer interested in coming to the pool to make it worth the expense of a Family Membership. Please note: this is NOT an option for one parent/one child nor a 2-child membership; it must be two adults living at the same residence.
