OFP offers different membership types to provide pricing flexibility to the many different types of families.  All pool memberships (Continuing, Temporary, and Sustaining) have year-round access to the facilities (pool, paddle tennis, and pickleball).  All pool members who have children are eligible for the swim and dive teams.  All pool members receive the OFP Discount for our spring and fall programming with FINS (lessons, youth training, masters, lap swimming).

Continuing membership has a one-time initiation fee then the members pay lower annual dues than Temporary.  If you plan on staying in the neighborhood four or more years then this type of membership becomes cheaper over the long run.  The initiation fee is non-refundable.  Continuing members have year-round privileges to the pool facilities and have voting rights.

Temporary membership pays a higher annual dues membership than a Continuing member.  It is designed for those who will be members for three or fewer years.  Temporary members have year-round access to the facilities but do not have voting rights.

Sustaining membership is a benefit for our long-time members.  If you have been a Continuing member for 15 years and no longer have any dependents using the pool, you qualify for this incredibly low membership fee.

When you join OFP as a member, you enjoy our summer pool season which runs from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day.  Our Paddle Tennis and Pickleball are year-round.  Our spring and fall seasons are typically eight weeks before summer opening day and eight weeks after Labor Day (note:  spring and fall seasons are not part of the annual dues fees, they are run by FINS Swimming and OFP members receive a discount on the services).

Our summer operating hours are 11:00 AM until either 9:00 PM or 10:00 PM (Friday and Saturdays).  We have programs that start as early as 5:30 AM (masters and tri-training) and many before 11:00 AM (water aerobics, swim team, lessons, etc.).

There are no boundary limitations for OFP.  We accept membership from all neighborhoods and zip codes.

Currently, OFP does not have a waitlist.  You can sign up today and be a member right away.

OFP offers water aerobics, lap swimming, paddle tennis, pickleball, basketball, volleyball, cornhole, swim lessons, swim team, dive team, tri-athlete training, masters, youth tri events, and plenty of social events.

OFP is proud to partner with FINS Swimming for our spring and fall programming.  What does this mean?  It means OFP rents the pool to FINS in the fall and spring months, and in return, FINS offers a wide range of swim activities (lessons, training, lap swimming, masters) to our members and the local community.  OFP members receive a 15% discount on this programming.  This programming is not included as part of the annual membership fees.  Signing up for the spring/fall programs is done through the FINS website (not OFP, although we provide a link).  A special discount code is available to OFP members, who have confirmed memberships, which will take 15% off the pricing.

During the summer months, we always have lap lanes available.  Typically, we have three lap lanes open on weekdays (except during afternoon swim practice for two hours, when one lane is available), and two lap lanes on the weekend.

In addition to lap lanes being available during all the pool open hours, every hour for 15 minutes (from a quarter of to the top of the hour) there is an adult swim (except during swim practice 4-6 on weekdays).

In the spring and fall our swim partner FINS has a lap swimming program that offers 3-4 hours of lap swimming each weekday and some hours on the weekend.   OFP members receive a discount on this fee.

Family or Head of Household (Continuing or Temporary) membership allows your children to join the swim and dive teams. There must be an adult on the membership.

It does.  You cannot join a team without being a pool member, but there is an additional fee to then join either team (or both).

Our swim team program is designed for all levels of swimmers, and every child can join regardless of ability.  We have a competitive “A” program that participates in the MCSL and we also offer a “B” meet program to swimmers who don’t qualify for the “A” meets.  All swimmers practice together and have the same social events, and many of the swimmers compete in both the “A” and “B” meets.

We have a Pre-Team and Little Eagles program that includes the youngest members of the pool (8 and under who aren’t quite ready to swim a full length yet).  Young swimmers take an evaluation test at the beginning of the summer and are assigned to either the Pre-Team, Little Eagles (one has lessons in the shallow end and the other in the deep end), or the Team itself.  The groups are fluid; a swimmer can move from pre-team to team during the season.

More info regarding the swim team can be found by clicking here.

Our swim team is coached by our swim partner, FINS Swimming.  FINS Swimming is a professional swim school that has been in Montgomery County for over a decade.

Not everyone wants to join a pool, but OFP also offers year-round pickleball and paddle tennis with our lighted courts.  Our courts are available from 5:30 AM until 11:00 PM.  We offer leagues, tournaments, lessons, and social events all under our lighted courts.  The only catch is you are not eligible for using the pool or the discount with FINS programs.

Paddle Tennis is also known as Platform Tennis.  In very rough terms, it is like a combination of tennis and racquetball on a mini-tennis court surrounded by wire mesh (the walls).  It is predominantly played as doubles and is a year-round sport, but mostly played in the fall and winter months.  OFP has two lighted paddle tennis courts and offers league and tournament play, as well as lessons and social events.  More info

Every hour for 15 minutes (from a quarter of to the top of the hour) there is an adult swim (except during swim practice 4-6 on weekdays).  This is a great time for the kids to have a rest and a snack, and for adults to hang out in the water.

The pool offers a large array of amenities:

      • Baby/Wading pool with fountains (completely refurbished for 2022 season)
      • Paddle Tennis courts (lighted)
      • Pickleball courts (lighted)
      • Basketball court (lighted)

      • Dining and Picnic Tables
      • Cornhole

OFP offers up a variety of social events for all ages.  Big events that include things like food, drinks, and DJ (School’s Out, Back to School, Oktoberfest) usually have a nominal fee to cover the cost of the food and drinks.  Other events like July 4th, Sunday Sundaes, and grill days are part of the membership.  We have multiple gas grills available for your cooking needs.  Creating your own happy hour is always free!

OFP also lines up an array of food trucks for the weekends, so you can come to the pool, swim, and have dinner – make an entire afternoon/evening of it.  The schedule for food trucks can be found on our events calendar when finalized.

OFP is very proud to be partnered with FINS Swimming for our swim team coaching, lessons, and spring and fall programming.  FINS Swimming is a professionally run, officially registered USSSA swim school, that has been serving Montgomery County since 2009.  FINS utilizes Old Farm Pool and Georgetown Prep for its various youth swim programs.

The FINS coaches work their way through several years of training and apprenticeship in order to be able to teach private lessons.  FINS has a large pool of experienced instructors – you will not be signing up with someone who is new to giving lessons.

Since partnering with FINS, the OFP swim team has steadily climbed the MCSL rankings, currently residing in C division.  FINS provides group and private lessons for OFP members throughout the summer, including running the Pre-Team and Little Eagles development programs.
