Shooting Sports Club

In 4-H Shooting Sports, kids gain skills in the disciplines of archery, pistol, rifle, shotgun, muzzleloading, and hunting, which are taught by certified instructors. These clubs benefit youth in many ways, including 1) promoting character and personal growth through safe, educational, and socially acceptable involvement in target shooting programs, 2) teaching safe, responsible use of firearms and archery equipment, including sound decision-making and self-discipline, and 3) promoting the highest standards of safety, sportsmanship and ethical behavior. 

We are looking for Shooting Sports Club participants! We welcome seasoned target shooters as well as those who have no previous experience with firearms or archery. The club will meet twice a month from May-September. If you are interested in joining, please fill out this form.
