About us

We are a private, family-oriented swim club, organized to provide friendly relief from the summer heat for our member families and their guests. The Club’s facilities are open for swimming from early morning to late evening daily, Memorial Day through Labor Day, with lifeguard supervision available daily. A picnic area adjacent to the pool enclosure is open to members and their guests. Youngsters can learn to swim, at no additional cost, through our swim Instruction program, staffed by Red Cross certified Lifeguards. The membership may also run special events during the year: such as an opening day picnic, a children’s party, or impromptu pot luck suppers and lunches when the mood strikes us!

THE PROVINCE LINE SWIM CLUB IS:

  • Located on five acres of land on Province Line Road in Montgomery Township, New Jersey, at the foot of the Sourland mountains. The facilities include the swimming pool with diving board, a wading pool for infants, a bathhouse containing restrooms and changing areas for men and women, and a picnic area with tables and barbecue grills.
  • A private swim club offering a welcome retreat from the heat for families and their guests, a picnic area for summertime entertaining, and the fellowship of a small and committed membership. Membership is limited to 40 families, to minimize crowding and maximize the enjoyment of the pool and the grounds for all.
  • A family-oriented facility, through which we offer free swimming lessons for our children, lifeguard-supervised swimming during posted hours, several special social events for children as well as adults scheduled during the season, and extensive guest privileges at economical rates. The Club is a good place for birthday parties for children, special barbecues for families and guests, or just plain enjoying the summer days and evenings.
  • A cooperative in its ownership, operation, management, and maintenance. Incorporated as a non-profit club in the State of New Jersey, the facilities are owned, operated, and maintained exclusively by the members of the Club. Membership in the Club confers the benefits of use of the pool and grounds, organized activities, wide-ranging guest privileges, and the ability to share the experiences with up to 40 like-minded families. It also confers the responsibility, and fun, of pitching in to keep our oasis in tip-top shape through participation in the efforts of one or more of the Club’s committees.

Operation

We are chartered as a non-profit cooperative, wholly owned by up to forty families which comprise our membership. We depend on the dues and the efforts of each other to maintain the Club’s facilities and operations, from painting the pool house, to repairing the fence, to hiring and supervising the lifeguards, to planning and carrying out the Club’s special events. Families accepted for membership will participate in the Pool & Facilities Committee.

Meetings

The Club holds two annual meetings each year. During the fall meeting, officers are elected for the coming year, the year’s operations are reviewed, suggestions for improvements considered, winterizing tasks are finalized, and initial planning for the coming year is initiated. At the spring meeting, the pool startup is planned, dues are set, committee members are assigned and chair-persons named, and other suggestions and ideas for the operation of the Club are discussed.

Membership

Membership is limited to 40 families to avoid crowding and maximize the opportunities for enjoyment of the pool and grounds by all. Members buy a $650 bond, which is fully refundable when membership terminates, provided termination provisions are met. The bond is paid in two installments during each of the first two years of membership. The money from the bond provides a cushion of capitalization for the Club, temporarily protecting the membership in the event of unforeseen major expenditures, and enabling the Club to repurchase the bonds of departing members.
