Membership Registration and Payment

SOSA Membership

A regular SOSA membership that includes all immediate family members living at home as well as any university students in the immediate family is $220. In addition, there is a $150 deposit which will be returned at the end of the season if you complete at least 8 hours of volunteer service to the club.

The few members who have Lifetime status pay only the deposit of $150. New Lifetime memberships are no longer available.

We would prefer that you pay by credit card, but if you cannot do that, please choose Interac e-transfer instead. Instructions will be provided.

PLEASE NOTE: Late fees ($100) are now in effect for renewing members. New members (you have never been a member before) should contact the membership director before joining to receive a $100 discount code to be used when you pay for membership.
