4-H Shooting Sports


The Shooting Sports Program provides a supportive, adult-supervised environment in which young people, ages 8 to 18 years old, can learn the shooting disciplines of archery and air rifle, and youth ages 10 to 18 years old can learn the  shooting disciplines of shotgun. Youth will also learn about wildlife management and conservation ethics. 

We also have an Outdoor Adventure program. This Hunting and Outdoor Skills project is a part of the 4-H Shooting Sports program. Youth will participate in active learning as you become acquainted with this challenging, yet FUN program.

The 4-H Shooting Sports Program maintains a strong relationship with the existing natural resources, safety, and/or outdoor recreation 4-H programs. The materials and training programs emphasize young people and their life skills as the product of the program while using tested techniques and positive reinforcement. This approach allows 4-H to increase awareness of natural resources and conservation (knowledge), to develop competency in safe shooting sports practices (skills), and to provide youth with positive workforce attitudes (behaviors).
