SWISS RIFLE CLUB CALGARY

Membership Information


All memberships start 15 December and are valid for 12 months. We do not  pro-rate memberships, so in the event you joined part way through the year, you still have to pay the entire fee.

Minimum Requirements

To be eligible for membership, the primary member must:

    • Have a valid PAL; and
    • Be 18 years or older.

Membership Options

We have two membership options available:

    • Single - for adults 18 years of age or older; and

    • Additional family members - add on memberships for an extra three family members at a nominal cost. You can add your spouse and children. Children must be 12 to 25 years old.

Included in your membership are the following:

    • Membership in the Alberta Provincial Rifle Association (APRA). ARPA is a not-for-profit organization that is responsible for promoting marksmanship throughout Alberta and is responsible for the overall administration of the Crown land lease where our range is located.
    • Insurance through the National Firearms Association. Included in this is liability insurance of $5,000,000 which covers you for firearms incidents anywhere in the world

Pricing

The annual membership cost to join the SRCC is $250 per year. Up to three additional family members can join at $30 per person, per year. If you are already a member of the APRA and pay your dues through another club, then you pay $200 per year plus $15 per family member. If you are a new member or were not a member of SRCC in the previous year, then there is an additional one time fee of $200 per application.

As an example, a new single member would pay $450 in the first year, and $250 per year after that. This would include membership in the club and the APRA fee. If you were a member for several years, then took a year off, then you would pay $450 in the year you reapplied.

Guest Policy

The following are the policies regarding guests at the range:

    • Members may bring guests to the range by purchasing a guest pass for $20 each;
    • Guests of the range must have a valid guest pass for that day;
    • All guests must be escorted by the club member at all times and it is the club member's responsibility to ensure that their guest follows all the club rules while at the range;
    • All guests must sign in - this is mandatory in order to comply with our insurance policy;
    • If club firearms are available at the range that day, then guests are permitted to use them. They need only pay for the ammunition;
    • A club member can have no more than two guests per day;
    • Guests who do not have a PAL must be closely supervised by the club member.

How to Join

We typically take in new members in the month of January only. In order to be considered, please add your name to the waitlist form on this website. This is the process for new members:

    • Apply to the waitlist anytime throughout the year;
    • In January we send out invitations to join. Initially we have a survey to understand your interests and background.
    • In February we let people know if they have been accepted. Acceptance is based largely on how many new members we are taking in that year, which can vary from year to year. If you don't get in right away, keep your name on the waitlist.
    • Members that have been accepted pay their membership dues. Dues are paid in full and not pro-rated.
    • Sometime in February or March we will have an orientation at the range for new members. This is where you will learn all the Club rules and safety measures and get all the necessary codes for the gates and buildings. At this point you can use the range, not before.

Membership Renewals

If you are a current member of SRCC, you will get a renewal notice on October 1st. You have until December 15th to pay your dues for next year. If you did not get your renewal notice on October 1st, login to this website and renew your membership prior to 15 December. If you don't renew prior to 15 December, you risk paying the initiation fee, or not being renewed at all.

Additional Information on Member IDs

    • PAL. You must have your PAL (or RPAL) with you at the range at all times. We highly recommend that you make photocopies and put them in your range bag or gun case in the event you misplace it.
    • RPAL club registration. When you have an RPAL you must provide proof to the CFO that you are registered in a club that allows handguns. You can use your SRCC club membership card for this purpose. Make sure you use the “Alberta Provincial Rifle Association” as the organization where you are using your handgun, as it is the one that the CFO has on file for this purpose.
