In their regular meeting on August 7, Southlake City Council discussed and unanimously voted to approve pricing changes to the Championship Club membership fees.
Membership rates were originally discussed at their June 28 meeting, and many locals expressed their concern about the prices via social media. So the council listened to their thoughts and brought them up for review.
“As a Council, we are appreciative of feedback that we receive from residents. In this case, their comments and questions, especially those posted during Councilmember Huffman’s and Councilmember McCaskill’s Facebook live videos, were very helpful in helping us understand their point of view,” Mayor Laura Hill says via email. “When we asked city staff for options, it was based upon the residential input and the sound financial principles that guide all of our operations.”
The August 7 vote included increasing the resident discount from 10 percent to 20 percent and the corporate discount from 5 percent to 10 percent. They also voted to allow residents to opt out of child watch services, which were previously included in their monthly rate.
This translates into a $45 base rate for youths ages 3-15 and a $36 rate for resident youths; a $56 base rate for adults ages 16-64, a $45 rate for resident adults and a $50 rate with the corporate discount; a $45 base rate for seniors 65 and older, a $36 rate for resident seniors and a $41 rate with the corporate discount; a $124 base rate for families, a $99 rate for resident families and a $112 rate for families with the corporate discount, and a $89 rate for resident families who do not want to include child-watch in their fees. They also offer a 10 percent off military discount.
Membership sales won’t be available until closer to the facility’s opening date, but they are set to include access to a variety of fitness classes, exclusive events and discounted rentals. And access into the facility includes their fitness center, basketball courts, indoor pool, water slides, lazy river, lap lanes and much more.
