  • Weekdays                      4:00pm-7:00pm
  • Weekends/holidays       Noon-6:00pm

Registration and Fees
We will begin the registration process for the 2023 season this week, starting with Equity Members. Watch for email notices and register ASAP to avoid late fees and account closure, and to help speed the process. The Equity Member registration deadline is March 25. Full Summer Affiliate registration will begin in early April. When Full Summer Affiliate slots are filled the offers for Late Summer Affiliates will be issued. Please do not attempt to register before you receive notification as that will create transaction records that will complicate your account.

You will see a modest increase in season dues this year as Merrimack continues to face rising costs for labor, pool chemicals, utilities, and other supplies. The 2023 season dues are:

First Swimmer Additional Swimmers 1
 Equity Members 3 $375 $100 2
 Full Summer Affiliates 3 $540 $180
 Late Summer Affiliates $350 $100
  1. Caregivers must be registered and paid as an additional swimmer.
  2. Equity Members pay for a maximum of 3 additional swimmers.
  3. The inactive waiver fee for Equity Members and Full Summer Affiliates is $250.

Swim and Dive
Merrimack’s Swim and Dive coaches, Elizabeth Lofgren and Kathy Kirk, will be back leading our kiddos to glory. Team Registration will occur in April. Swim and dive lessons will be available throughout the season, and instructions for sign-ups will be shared closer to the season’s start.

Events and Activities
We are planning lots of activities for the pool community, including movie nights, Swim and Dive Team events, and adult socials.  Details on these activities will be communicated throughout the season (personal, not work, emails are recommended).

The Board remains committed to operating Merrimack Pool safely and enjoyably for our members and we are excited about the 2023 season start. We look forward to seeing you at the pool!
