Membership

The Northern Rio Grande Sportsmen’s Club has established a number of memberships to meet the needs of members and their families. Please read this page carefully regarding the various responsibilities and requirements of each membership type.

Please note that no new individual or family memberships will be valid without a current NRGSC Safety Orientation Class certificate. No exceptions will be made to this rule. Renewing members who have previously passed the safety class are not required to take it again.

To obtain a current NRGSC Safety Orientation Class certificate by using the club’s online training program, please visit the NRGSC Safety Orientation class page.

All members included in a family membership application must provide proof of safety training.  Each safety training quiz is associated with an email address.

All memberships run from July 1 to June 30 the following year. Fees will not be prorated. See the membership types below for information on fees.
