"Know Before you Go"

  • Signed up for a membership online? We can't wait to see you! But first, know these few things:

    • A membership online does not gurantee a membership at the Shaw JCC. All of our members must go through a background check before becoming a member. (If you are not accepted as a member, you will get a full refund.)

    • Once you have signed up for membership online, please stop by the front desk M-F from 7:30AM-6PM to confirm membership and get your card(s).
