Ridgewood Pool is a stockholder, membership pool operating from Memorial Day to Labor Day. The facility is located on the far West side of Madison, tucked into a quiet corner of the Orchard Ridge neighborhood, between Whitney Way and Verona Road, in a kid-friendly neighborhood setting. In addition to two regulation-sized pools for recreational and competitive swimming, there is also a separate diving well with two low dives and the only outdoor high-dive in town, plus a fenced-in toddler pool of 6″ depth.

Our 2014 Membership Sign-up Policy will follow the pattern set last year. This two-stage registration process has been designed to allow returning members early access to the registration system, with new summer members welcome in the spring.

Beginning January 15, 2014, the online membership sign-up will be active for current stockholders and returning 2013 members. (NOTE: if you were a first-time, summer-only member in 2013, you must purchase stock to join Ridgewood for 2013 and beyond.) On April 15, 2014, we will begin accepting new summer-only members until we reach the 500-member limit. Once we reach the 500-member limit, we will not be able to accept any more members for the season (including any stockholders or past members who have not yet signed up). Please be aware that waiting to renew your membership may jeopardize your ability to be active members this season, regardless of your stockholder status. Also new this year: a Lesson Sign-up registry will be created, based on the order in which registration (including payment) is completed. You will be notified of a time frame in which to register your child/ren for swim, dive and  water ballet lessons; the sooner you sign up, the earlier your time frame will be!

*NEW* Lesson Sign-Up Improvements 

Your family’s lesson sign-up time will be determined by the date your registration is paid in full — register early, get an early time!  You will be assigned a 15 minute window based on when your payment was received during which time (or any time after) you may come and sign up for your lessons. If you are unable to come in person during your assigned time, you may speak with the pool director to make alternate arrangements.  We realize some members like to sign up their and other families’ children at the same time to ensure that they are in the same lesson. In fairness to all, if you want to sign up as a group, you will need to do so in the time slot of the family who has the latest assigned time.
