SAFETY, KNOWLEDGE, SKILLS & UNDERSTANDING

Certified Volunteer Instructors supervise each 4-H Shooting Sports Program. Many of our Instructors hold dual certification through the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, the NRA and/or the National Muzzleloaders Association.

SAFETY is always our primary concern. Youth and adults are trained to know and to adhere to the Ten Commandments of Firearm Safety.

KNOWLEDGE about firearms, archery equipment and natural environment components is featured as Volunteer Instructors share years of experience.

SKILLS are developed under the watchful eyes of our Instructors. Youth learn new skills as well as continue to improve and practice skill techniques.

UNDERSTANDING, through education, is the key element of the 4-H Shooting Sports program as both youth and adults learn about their rights, responsibilities and the role they play in the natural environment.
