  • Memberships

    Do I need to become a member to shoot at your club?
    This is one of our top FAQs. Membership at the Janesville Conservation Club is not required if you want to shoot practice or participate in our registered ATA events. However, if you want to join our leagues, we do require membership.

    How much does a membership cost?
    Believe it or not, membership is currently only $20 per year—good January through December. That’s the best deal around, period.

    What is the benefit of becoming a member?
    In addition to allowing you to shoot in a league, it will reduce your cost per round of trap, plus we’ll let you use our indoor plumbing.

  • Cost to Shoot

    Singles and Wobble: non-member = $5.50, member = $5.00, youth = $4.00 (under 18, practice only)

  • Lessons

    Does the club offer introductory trapshooting lessons?
    Yes we do. We have certified NRA Shotgun Coaches available to help. One option is to ask for help at the front desk when you come to the club. A second, preferred option, is to call to arrange a time for a lesson. That way, the front desk can make sure somebody is available to help.
