         Please note:

Welcome to the DuPage, Kane & Kendall Counties 4-H Shooting Sports web page. The program utilizes the resources of University of Illinois Extension's 4-H program. Currently, we offer three disciplines of this program … archery, air rifle, and outdoor skills.  Youth aged 8-18 can participate in any or all of the disciplines we offer. 

A HUGE Thank You to our volunteers who make this program possible!  Each discipline is taught by a State 4-H Certified Instructor who has attended an extensive training program. The Illinois 4-H Shooting Sports program relies heavily on adult volunteers taking the lead in the shooting disciplines and management of the local county programs. County Extension 4-H staff members provide assistance with a number of items, but it is the volunteer who ultimately makes the county program successful. If you are interested in volunteering for this program, please contact your local 4-H Extension Staff member.

We also greatly appreciate the support of our community partners who make this program possible.  Program partners include:

  • College of DuPage, Homeland Security Training Center
  • Knollwood Gun Club
  • NRA Foundation
  • Kendall County Gobblers (National Wild Turkey Federation)
  • Kane County Fair Association

Through the 4-H Shooting Sports program, youth learn marksmanship, the safe and responsible use of firearms, the principles of shooting and archery, and much more. The activities of the program and support of caring adult leaders provide young people with opportunities to develop life skills, self-worth and conservation ethics.
