4-H Shooting Sports
Safety, Knowledge, Understanding, & Skills

Certified volunteer instructors supervise each 4-H Shooting Sports Program

Safety is always a primary concern. Youth and adults are trained to know and adhere to the Ten Commandments of firearm safety.

Knowledge about firearms and the natural environment is featured as volunteers share years of experience.

Skills are developed under the watchful eyes of the instructors. For some youth, these are new. Others improve and practice their techniques.

Understanding is the most important component of the 4-H Shooting Sports Project. It is developed as youth and adults become aware of their rights, responsibilities, and their role in the natural environment
