Youth develop life skills (i.e. decision making, responsibility) when participating in the 4-H Shooting Sports Program while learning about and practicing the safe and responsible use of firearms and archery equipment. The program is led by volunteer adult and teen leaders who complete a weekend training to become state certified instructors in a shooting discipline.
The Washington County 4-H Shooting Sports Program in Ohio is offered through the Bull’s-Eye 4-H Club. The Club holds a fall and winter session each year. Boys and girls ages 9 to 19 can choose to participate in one or both sessions. Each session includes seven meetings where members have hands-on learning in rifle (air and .22), pistol (air and .22), shotgun (20 gauge), muzzleloader, archery, and/or living history disciplines, depending on instructor availability. During business meetings, members decide on and carry out community service projects, promotional displays, recognition activities, etc.
