Recurring Memberships

  • Applying for a recurring membership requires the authorization of the Wilson Climbing Centre to charge a bank or Visa/MasterCard/Amex account on the 1st or 15th of each month. 
  • To discontinue a recurring membership, a membership cancellation form must be submitted, IN PERSON, at the Wilson Climbing Centre front desk, at least 7 DAYS PRIOR to the desired date of membership cancellation. (For example, if I wish my cancellation to become effective September 1st, I must fill out the appropriate form at the Wilson Climbing Centre on or before August 25.)
    • Missing this cancellation window will result in another automatic withdrawal taken from the chosen account, for the upcoming month
    • Non-refundable auto-withdrawals will continue until a cancellation form is submitted in person (these are non-refundable)
    • It is the patron's responsibility to inform the Wilson Climbing Centre about any changes made to linked credit-card/bank accounts, after the membership application.
  • The Wilson Climbing Centre WILL CONTINUE TO attempt charging accounts/cards on file (even if deactivated, stolen, etc.)
    • After 2 "missed membership payments", the patron will have a block placed on their account, preventing them from using ALL VVC facilities UNTIL THE MISSED PAYMENTS ARE PAID OFF IN FULL (at the Wilson Climbing Centre front desk).
