Purchase or Renew Your Pool Pass Online!

Photo ID Card & Pool Pass
Are your pool passes beat up and in need of replacement? Is your six-year-old now 12? We are offering free pool replacement passes again this year. We are also taking pictures at three locations:

- Ackerman Sports & Fitness Center
- Main Street Recreation Center
- Spring Avenue Recreation Center

If you have had your picture taken for Ackerman Sports & Fitness Center, this will also serve as your pool pass.

Renew your pool pass membership either online (you must have created your new account for 2014) or by completing the 2014 Pool Application form. If you do not want to replace your pass, upon payment, your pass will automatically be renewed. Renewal letters will be mailed to 2013 pool pass members in March. If you did not purchase a pool pass last year, you will need to purchase a pass for the 2014 season as follows:

  • - Every member of the family must have a photo taken. Family members need not come in at the same time.
  • - Photos are taken at Ackerman Sports & Fitness Center, Main Street Recreation Center and Spring Avenue Recreation Center.
  • - The first member will need to bring in proof of residency, preferably a driver's license or a utility bill with a current address.
  • - Your ID Card is designed with a bar code that will be read upon entry into the pool. Your family's information will be kept on the database for easier program registration in the future, as well as for pool pass renewal. Save your ID Cards!
  • - There are no refunds given for pool passes.
