Herndon Swim Club Frequently Asked Questions:


Q: How do I pay my membership dues or other outstanding charges on my account?

A: Please visit our payment information page for instructions.

Q: Are the Herndon Swim Club and Herndon Recreation Inc. the same thing?

A: Our pool is private swim club, owned by Herndon Recreation Inc. (HRI), a corporation founded in 1965. Although the corporate name remains Herndon Recreation Inc., many people confused us with a municipal facility, so we are now called Herndon Swim Club on our signs and elsewhere.

Q: Can non-members use your pool or take swimming lessons there? What about swim team?

A: Our corporate structure is such that members join and pay an annual fee to use the pool. Non-members are welcome to come and try out our pool one time using a "Prospective Family Day Pass". You can enquire about a pass by e-mailing membership@herndonswims.com. Members may use guest passes to bring guests to the pool. Only members can participate in swim lessons and swim team.

Q: My family is not ready to join a pool this year. Are there public pools in Herndon?

A: There is a public indoor pool at the Herndon Community Center. There are public outdoor pools at Algonkian Regional Park in Sterling and at Lake Fairfax Regional Park in Reston.

Q: What is the difference between a Stockholder and an Associate.

A: As of 2013 an Associate is a "no strings attached" membership. The annual dues are higher for Associates and they cannot serve on our board of directors or vote in corporate matters. They can participate fully in swim team and social events at the pool. Stockholders (same as shareholders) are members who have officially purchased stock in Herndon Recreation, Inc. Their annual dues are lower and they are able to serve on board of directors and vote in corporate matters.

Q: How do I become a shareholder?

A: To become a shareholder you can purchase stock from our corporation for $375 or purchase stock from someone in the community. There is a $40 transfer fee for stock purchased from other shareholders.

Q: If I buy stock, do I need to pay dues also?

A: Yes, you need to pay annual dues as well, but those dues are lower. You can make up the cost of the shares in a few years.

Q: Do you sell food?

A: Currently we sell ice cream and sodas. Members may bring food or order pizzas and enjoy them at our picnic tables. Health codes do not allow food on the pool deck.
