    2020 Sleepy Hollow Community Pool Memberships

    We encourage you to retain your pool membership at least until we are able to announce opening possibilities after July 5. This might include further periods of lap swim only, a combination of lap swim and family swim with sign-ups for time slots, or even closing the pool if no opening is sustainable.

    If you do want to cancel your membership before June 22, we will refund in full less a $25 processing cost.

    If you are not satisfied July 5th with what we are able to offer going forward, we will refund 80% of your membership fee. Sleepy Hollow Community Pool has fixed costs regardless of the use of the pool, and we will be trying to offer options that are attractive to all members.
