We have a heated 25-meter range with five shooting points and an automatic target transport. It is possible to shoot with a small caliber rifle and with the most handgun calibres. We have a collection of guns available for our members
There is a bar where you can meet other clubmembers and have a drink.
"Huuh, do you shoot?" Shooting as a sport is somewhat underexposed in the Netherlands. You hear little about it and it is often considered strange or scary. And that while more than 40,000 very normal people practice the shooting sport with great enthusiasm.
But what is so great about shooting? Just like with any other sport, it is very personal. What is so great about football or volleyball?
Shooting is all about a combination of concentration, precision and tranquility. Hitting the bull's eye on the shooting card is harder than you might think. And also (or rather) for shooting: what you see on TV and in films has little relationship with reality.
Do you want to know if shooting is something for you? Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and make an appointment for a tour of our club with an explanation of the shooting sport.
If you are interested in becoming a member after the tour, we will make an appointment to take an introductory lesson with an instructor.
The introductory lesson is only possible by appointment and with a maximum of two people at the same time. It costs € 20 per person including ammunition, cards and guidance by one of our instructors. Take a valid proof of identity with you and do not use alcohol or the like for shooting.
The introduction lesson is intended for people who are seriously interested in practicing shooting at clubs. For "just shooting", group activities, company outings or bachelor parties, you can go to a commercial shooting center.
The membership of SV Target is € 186 per year (2020) plus a one-off € 15 registration fee. For that you can come shoot on Monday and Friday evening.
The membership runs from January to December. If you become a member during the year, you only pay for the remaining months. Once you are a member, you only pay for the ammunition and the shooting cards you use.
All sports shooters are also required members of our sports association, the Royal Dutch Shooting Association (KNSA). The costs for this are € 42.50 per year and a one-off € 42.50 entrance fee. Registration with the KNSA always goes through the association.
A VOG (Certificate of Conduct Statement) is required for membership of a shooting club. You will receive an application form from us or it will be prepared online for you. We only accept a VOG that has been requested through us, other ways are unnecessarily expensive and less secure. You cannot become a member without a VOG.
The association is run by volunteers. Each member will be scheduled 1 to 2 times a year as Range Officer.
Safety comes first, certainly in the shooting sport! That is why you will first receive a few weeks of instruction, in which your progress will be recorded in a logbook. You learn the technique of shooting, but especially how to handle the weapons safely, without endangering yourself and your fellow shooters. Only when the instructors give their approval can shoot independently.
Send us an email if you have any questions, want more information, or for an appointment for a tour?
The tour and introductory lesson are intended for people who are seriously interested in practicing shooting at our club. For one-time shooting, group activities, company outings or bachelor parties, you can go to a commercial shooting center.

Our range is particularly well served by public transport. We are in fact under the track of the Amstel station. Trains, subways, trams and buses almost stop at the door. It is also not a problem by car: we are close to the A10 ring road (exit S112) and there is always a parking space available. It is paid parking until 9 p.m.
