More Detailed Information

If you have questions about registration or navigating the AFC eSoft portal, please read these instructions as they should answer any questions.If you are a new member, the first time you log in to the AFC eSoft portal, you will need to set up your account by entering address, phone number, email and other information. You will also need to add your dependents.  One member has already been listed, the spouse or domestic partner, and children may be listed as dependents.  Adult children living away from home (other than full time college students), and other individuals, may not be listed as dependents unless permission is granted - email membership@arlingtonforestclub.org to request such permission. AFC reserves the right to request proof of residence with the certificate holder before allowing individuals to be added to a membership. The improper listing of individuals as dependents may cause a membership to be suspended or forfeited. 

 

Use of this registration system may require you to conduct multiple transactions.  Your first transaction will be to pay your 2019 dues. 

 

Dues payment

 

When you pay dues, you will need to choose the appropriate membership category.  Those who own a certificate of membership must register as certificate holders.  Those who have converted to an emeritus membership should register as emeritus members.  Those who have been offered a 2019 summer rental membership should register as summer rental members.  Within each membership category, there are multiple options. Certificate holders and summer renters should choose between a family membership (3 or more people in the family) or a 1-2 person membership (no more than 2 members in the family).  Those choosing a 1-2 person membership will receive 20 free guest visits.  Emeritus members must choose between a single person membership or a couples membership.  Finally, certificate holders must choose between paying both dues and the November 2019 bathhouse payment now, or paying only dues now and making the November 1, 2019 on or before 11/1/19.In order to pay 2019 dues, click on Memberships.  There are four options available to certificate holders paying dues for 2019:

Once you have chosen the appropriate membership, Click “sign up.”

 

If you will have a sitter bring your child to the club, next to “Child Care Pass” use the drop down menu to select “Yes.”  Select the number of sitters you will have and enter the full name of each sitter.  You must include the first and last name of the sitter; “TBD’ or “Sitter” or similar designations will not be accepted.  If you have yet to hire your sitter for the summer, you may purchase a Child Care Pass at a later time, once your sitter has been hired.

Certificate Holders Seeking to have their membership rented out

Swim and Dive Team

 

You may pay for swim and/or dive team fees by credit card under the “camps and classes” tab.  

 

NOTE, if you have a child or children participating in swim team, you must (1) pay the appropriate fee in eSoft AND register your child(ren) in swimtopia.

 

Receiving Official AFC Communications

 

Why does my profile contain a question asking if I want to receive emails from eSoft refer to “promotional” emails?  Most of eSoft’s other pools do not have the benefit of a lengthy waitlist and they send marketing emails to increase membership.  As the result, the check box in your profile that allows eSoft to send emails refers to “promotional” emails.  Although AFC does not send marketing emails, the box allowing for “promotional” emails must remain checked if you wish to continue to receive email reminders, notices of meetings, etc.

 

What does the Account Balance in eSoft refer to?

 

The account balance is how much credit you have with AFC that you can use to fund purchases – AFC has been informally calling this AFC Buck$.  You may have a positive balance in this account if you cancelled a class and were given a refund or if you made an overpayment.  You may also have a positive balance in this account if you clicked on “fund account” and added money to your account.  Your account balance may be used to pay for anything under Camps and Classes.  AFC will be suspending use of AFC Buck$ for snack bar purchases at the end of June.  eSoft does not currently allow the Account Balance to be used for dues, certificate fee increases, or assessment payments.  If your account balance is zero, that means that you do not have any credit available for use in making purchases.  If you wish to have a redund of the account balance, email membership@arlingtonforestclub.org.
