CCSSEF is a robust and growing organization that does not have membership capped or a waiting list to join.

All members are REQUIRED to complete the foundation safety orientation and Safety Video. This is a one time task that will be recorded in your membership record and will not need to be repeated. The Safety Video can be viewed below or at the Clubhouse. When you complete your application, you will be asked to attest that you have viewed the video. A safety tour of the range is still required and will be done when the new member completes their application and pays their fees at the range.

How to Join or Renew

NOTICE: New Membership Requirements Effective Sept 2015:  NEW MEMBERS will be required to provide with their application:

  • A photo ID
  • Any State Police Background check or a License To Carry
  • Documentation of some form of “safe firearms handling”
    Complete details on Page 2 of Membership Application

New and Renewal Memberships may now use credit cards for payment, although a 5% surcharge will be added to cover the bank fee.

New Member Safety Orientations/processing are held every Saturday at 10:00 am “sharp” or during General Manager hours on weekdays at the CCSSEF Clubhouse. The orientation includes a foundation overview, safety video, range video, range closures/scheduling and a walk-through of the facility. Safety orientation typically lasts 1.0 hour. A membership card will be issued at the completion of the orientation program.

Walk-in renewal memberships will also be processed from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm every Saturday and weekdays during the General Manager hours at the CCSSEF Clubhouse.

Applications are available at the range or can be downloaded here.
