BSC may, in its sole discretion, modify the Policies and Rules without notice at any time. It's your responsibility to know and follow the most current Policies and Rules.

You must check in at the front desk on each visit to our facility. Scan your keytag or ask an employee to check you in. All members are responsible for having a keytag and carrying it with them. Failure to scan, during all hours will result in cancellation of your membership.
MEMBERSHIP FREEZE POLICY
Qualification and Notice Requirements: BSC will only freeze your membership if you are in good standing, you have all fees paid, you are current on your monthly dues, you provide at least ten days’ notice for a freeze request to allow BSC to process your request, and you qualify for one of the three categories below:

Active Duty Military Transfer or Extended Volunteer Assignment: You must provide BSC with a copy of your transfer, deployment or extended volunteer assignment orders. There is no minimum or maximum for assignment freeze. If you request a specific freeze term less than six months, your membership and monthly Electronic Funds Transfer ("EFT") or credit card charge will automatically resume at the end of the specified time. If you request a specific freeze term greater than six months, or you do not specify a freeze term, you must contact BSC to reactivate.
Temporary Employment Transfer: You must provide BSC with verification from your employer, on company letterhead, that you are being temporarily transferred. The minimum term for a temporary employment transfer freeze is three months and the maximum freeze is six months.
Extended Freeze: As a courtesy to our members, BSC may approve or deny your request for an extended freeze for reasons other than those listed above.

Dues During Freeze: No further dues will be collected during your approved freeze and your right to access BSC facilities during the freeze will be suspended. Notwithstanding the foregoing, you will still be required to pay an Annual Maintenance Fee (plus applicable taxes), as provided in your membership agreement, during your approved freeze so long as your membership is in effect. In the event your membership is prepaid, the term of the prepaid membership shall be extended, without further dues, for the same period of the freeze.

We strongly recommend that you make an appointment for your guest's visit and a tour/orientation may be required. A guest must check in at the front desk, be at least 18, sign a medical and injury release form and pay a guest fee before using our facilities (a parent or legal guardian may bring a minor as a guest if the adult member agrees to sign the appropriate release forms). BSC may restrict the number of guests and times you may bring guests. You must inform guests about these Policies. Any member caught sneaking friends in, allowing others to use their passcode, or opening the door for ANYONE, may be charged with trespassing. If you are NOT a member, do not come in our facility during non staffed hours, you will be charged with trespassing.

If there is a conflict over use, let management resolve it.
