Participants in 4-H shooting sports programs learn the safe, appropriate and responsible use of firearms and archery equipment while gaining marksmanship skills.
The shooting sports program also helps young people learn life skills, build self-worth, strengthen conservation ethics and become more effective environmental stewards.
Shooting sports program participants must enroll through 4HOnline and be ages 8 to 18 as of Jan. 1 of the current 4-H program year. Requirements for each discipline can be found on the project pages below. Volunteer instructors must be certified in each project discipline(s) they teach. See the Idaho 4-H Shooting Sports Rules (PDF) for specific event details.
