Member Information

Membership in the Los Alamos Sportsmen's Club is open to anyone with an interest in shooting or archery. The only requirements are safety and compliance with the range safety rules. There is no initiation fee, and members are welcome year round. Memberships are annual (from April 1 to March 31 of the following year). The Los Alamos Sportsmen's Club is affiliated with the NRA, and in order to maintain our affliation, a certain percentage of the membership is required to be NRA members. As an incentive, LASC provides discounted rates for those with a current NRA membership.

If you have additional questions, please contact the Membership Secretary at:

Membership Types:

  3. Group Membership in which certain organizations have established a relationship with LA-SC and members of such organizations are members of the membership;
  4. Life Membership in which a few members have been honored for their extraordinary contribution to the club.

Rules of Membership

Member Handbook

The Los Alamos Sportsmen's club member handbook encompasses a wide range of information about the club and rules for the club, ranges, and membership. All new members are encouraged to read this handbook prior to joining LASC.

Becoming a New Member

After the orientation, you'll be issued a badge, a combination to access the gates, and a key (if purchased, for those who wish to access the indoor range/bathrooms). New members are strongly encouraged to participate in volunteer activities during their initial membership in order to receive work credit for their renewal rates. Please check out the Work Credit Program for more information.

Renewing your Membership

Membership renewal notices are mailed to current members once a year in late February or early March. Those who return the renewal forms in a timely manner will receive an annual validation sticker for their membership badge and the new combination for the gates by April 1. The purpose for sending members the computer generated renewal notice is so that members can confirm that their membership information is correct.

Previous members who have allowed their memberships to lapse must attend an orientation session. This is because non-renewed membership data is flushed from the database. Thereafter it is not possible to confirm that a new or renewing member has attended the required orientation.

Orientation Sessions

Orientations are scheduled for the first Sunday of the month at 12:00 Noon.

All adult family members who want to use the club facilities on their own must individually attend the New Member Orientation.

Please either make an appointment with the Orientation Coordinator or use the "Register Now" link in the calendar event for a particular New Member Orientation Session. You can click on the calendar to find the available sessions. Once a session is selected, you will find a map to the club, contact information, and a way to register for that particular date.

(Be sure to check the calendar if an orientation is scheduled over a holiday weekend)
