Per Liz Langton, Membership Coordinator at the Fitness Center, there is a discounted rate for members of the Elgin Blue Wave Swim Team.
Here's how to get it: Go into the fitness center on the second floor, and tell them that you're on the team. You don't need proof, they have a list of team members. This gets you 15% off the required annual resident rate and the joining fee is waived.

We will miss you
