“Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.” 4H Shooting Sports is open to all boys and girls in the third grade or higher, being aged 8-19. Specific objectives of the program are many and all share the same goal; positive youth development. 4-H members have opportunities to test their shooting, hunting, and sportsmanship skills in county, regional, state, and national competitions. In fact, they could ultimately set Olympic competition as their goal. There are seventeen Olympic shooting sports events, which continue to draw the third-greatest number of countries.

Part of the 4H curriculum is public speaking. Members give presentations about things that they have an interest in. These demonstrations can be about pretty much anything... and they usually are. More photos can be found here.

One of the many things we do to have a successful club is elect responsible young people to be Officers in our club. These Officers run our meeting and conduct most of the clubs business. Thanks guys for leading our effort. There are more photos of our Officers posted here.

Thanks very much to Tri-State Gun Collectors Inc for the generous financial support that was shared with our club during their annual club picnic. Support from clubs like Tri-State Gun Collectors helps keep our kids on the range. The picnic was a blast!

As part of our program we like to recognize our members success. As their skills improve they receive different medals based on their level of expertise. This takes a lot of the hard work and dedication in the different disciplines they pursue. This dedication often extends beyond their involvement in our club and follows them later in life as was recently demonstrated by one of our former members as he shared his recent success in competitive shooting at Camp Perry. Congratulations to all who achieve success and we are proud to recognize them for it. More photos here.

How can kids get involved in the club?

The biggest factor in getting involved is a willingness to participate.

If you know a young person who may be interested in 4H Shooting Sports, the required applications including permission, health history, and emergency medical release forms are available from the club. All forms must be completed and turned in to club advisors by last day to join posted on the schedule. Any youth interested in shooting a handgun must also complete the consent form for that purpose. The club would also like to have a photo release form on file but this is not required if you object to the youth being included in club photos. Any adults who may wish to be included in club photos are also asked to submit a release form.
