Membership Update

As a reminder, per our membership letter, you do not need to worry about your account being billed during the shutdown.  All memberships were automatically put on hold as of March 17.
Billing will resume in August.  However, if you e-mail us at fcbilling@bgparks.org by July 31, and request that your membership be put on a freeze until Phase 5, or, request that we cancel your membership, you will not be billed in August.
Our membership sales team will process your request in the order it is received.  This process can take up to 7 days.  Please do not email multiple requests.  You will be contacted, via email, when your request has been processed.
If you have not put your membership on a freeze, or cancelled it, you will be billed in August.
Once the Fitness Center fully opens in Phase 5, all memberships, including student passes, will be adjusted accordingly, at no additional charge.
We hope you are safe and healthy while staying at home, and we look forward to the Fitness Center opening to everyone in Phase 5.
