Shooting Sports Volunteer Training

October 13-14, 2018

Shooting Sports volunteer training on target for Oct. 13 - 14


Adults interested in teaching the shooting sports to young people should attend the fall adult volunteer certification training for the Illinois 4-H Shooting Sports program  Oct. 13-14 at 4-H Memorial Camp in Monticello.


Volunteers must be at least 21 years of age. Cost is $125.


Volunteers must register through their local U of I Extension office. Volunteers must be present for all hours of the training to receive their certification.


There are six concentrations of study, and volunteers must choose only one discipline to attend per session.

These include archery, rifle, shotgun, pistol, and hunting and wildlife, as well as the overall county coordinator training. Remember, volunteers will work with their local Extension 4-H staff to establish or add to an existing shooting sports program in the county.

Registration opens in September.
