The Harvard Sportsmenís Club welcomes new members and encourages in our
club and the outdoor sports.
Prospective Members require sponsorship by a current HSC member. The
Sponsor is required to attend one of the monthly membership meetings with the
Prospective Member where the Sponsor will introduce the Prospective Member to
the club membership.
Our membership meetings are held at 6:30
pm in the clubhouse on the first Thursday of each month, except
July as there typically isnít a meeting in July. At the meeting, the
applicants pick up and fill out the membership form, and submit the
application with a check or cash for the applicable fee and dues. The
applicants are then interviewed by the Board. Basically, the Board members
ask the applicants why they wish to join the club. There is no need to
complete the application ahead of time as it is simple to do.
Anyone interested in joining HSC is welcome to attend the public events that
are listed on the calendar. Activities such as Bi-Weekly Breakfasts,
weekly Open Practices, and Match events are great opportunities to see the
club and meet members. If you donít already know an HSC member who can
Sponsor you, then these events are also good opportunities to make that
The Monthly Meetings are followed by a mandatory safety briefing on the
following Sunday at 8:30 am. This Range Safety Class is informative AND we
try to make it a little fun. The Class usually runs until 10:00 (depending on
how much we discuss politics). Alternative schedules are available for
folks who cannot attend on Sunday.
Each applicant must attend the Membersí meeting and Range Safety Class in
order to complete the application process.
There is a fee of $150 for initiation, and the dues are $150 for the year.
Student, associate and junior memberships are $15 each. September through
January the dues for the current year are pro-rated. The Board will announce
the cost at the meeting.
NRA membership is no longer a requirement. However, we do recommend
membership in a group that supports our Second Amendment rights such as the
NRA, GOAL or Comm2A. You can join or renew NRA membership online on the club
website by clicking on the NRA Eagle.
