Membership Information

We offer two types of memberships: a Shotgun Membership and a Full Membership.

Shotgun Membership:

Shotgun Members may use the Trap and Skeet facilities of the club during the posted hours of operation. This membership allows the member to purchase trap or skeet rounds for a reduced fee (for current fees and dues, see the Trap & Skeet Site). You may purchase an Shotgun Membership at the Clubhouse during the Trap and Skeet Club's hours of operation.

Full Club Membership:

Full Club Members may use the Rifle and Pistol Ranges and all the other facilities of the club - including access to trap and skeet and discounted trap and skeet rounds.

To apply for Full Club Membership the new applicant must:

This session will last approximately 2-3 hours depending on the class size. You may select from any orientation date and time available.
