The Town of Emerald Isle has partnered with Active Network to offer you the ability to register for classes, purchase a membership and make secure online payments. The process is easy. Simply sign on and click on the blue button called Purchase a Membership on the RIGHT. Choose the membership that fits your needs and proceed to membership application. When you have completed the membership application, you can pay with your credit card. On your next visit to Emerald Isle Parks & Recreation you will have your photo taken. Your membership card will be printed with your photo and a barcode. Each time you visit you will sign in by placing your membership card under the scanner. It’s that easy.

During the creation of your membership you will be asked to create a username and password. Please keep this information handy from year to year, as you will need it to renew your membership in 2016.

If you would prefer to purchase your membership in person at Emerald Isle Parks & Recreation, you can still do so. However, we anticipate that each membership will take us 20-30 minutes to process onsite verses the 10 minutes it will take you to process and purchase at home. For those wishing to purchase onsite, please bring a valid ID with your current Emerald Isle mailing address. Please note, memberships purchased onsite will require us to take your photo at the time of your application.

Membership Fees

The membership fee schedule is based upon an individual's or family's taxpayer status; that is, whether or not the Town of Emerald Isle is the recipient of any tax dollars from said individual or family.  Membership duration is based on the calendar year, beginning January 1st and expiring December 31st of each year; therefore, if you join in July, your membership will still expire on December 31st.  We are not able to prorate.  We do offer daily and weekly passes (see below). Family memberships may include children under the age of 25 who live with and are claimed on the primary member's taxes.

Annual taxpayer and non-taxpayer memberships include the use of the weight room, indoor gymnasium, tennis courts, discounted aerobics & yoga classes and discounted room rentals.
