4-H Shooting Sports in Ravalli County
To enroll in 4-H shooting sports, youth must be nine years old on Oct. 1 of the current 4-H year.
Shooting Sports is a safe, fun and challenging activity that can become a lifelong passion to be shared with the entire family. The safe and responsible use of firearms and archery equipment is the primary focus of the 4-H Shooting Sports program. Members will improve their marksmanship skills, have the opportunity to compete, and learn self-discipline and personal responsibility. All 4-H shooting sports leaders must attend a state training workshop and become certified in their shooting discipline before serving as project leaders.
All 4-H Shooting Sports curriculum is only to be used by a 4-H member enrolled in County Shooting Sports programs led by a 4-H certified Shooting Sports leader. No Shooting Sports projects that involve firearms, airguns or archery equipment may be taken independently without a certified leader.
