The Swiss Rifle Club is open to all people that wish to become better shooters.


To be eligible for membership you 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 years old or older, and 25 years old or younger.

Included in a membership are both:

  • 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


Every member must pay an APRA fee in addition to their club membership fee. If you are an existing APRA member and paid through another club, then you need only pay the club membership fee for the option you have chosen. The current pricing structure is as follows:



single: $250

single: $200

family: $15/person

family: $30/person

** Note: add an additional, one time $200 if this is the first year you are in the SRCC

Membership ID, PAL etc

  • Membership ID. Every member recieves an ID that is valid for the calendar year. We highly recommend that you photocopy your SRCC ID right away and put copies in your range bag and gun cases in the event you misplace it. You can then use this photocopy as your ID until such time you get a replacement card in the new year.

  • 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 mispalce it.

  • RPAL club registration. When you have an RPAL you must provide proof to the RCMP that you are registered in a club that allows handguns. You can use your SRCC club memberhsip card for this purpose. Make sure you use the “Alberta Provincial Rifle Association” as the organiztion where you are using your handgun, as it is the one that the CFO has on file for this purpose.
