4-H Target Shooting Sports Volunteer Workshop

When: April 9-11

Registration Deadline: March 15th

In the past there has been some interest in starting a shooting sports club within Alleghany 4-H. To do this, an adult volunteer must be certified through the 4-H Target Shooting Sports Program. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old. This is a hands-on workshop, participants will be required to pass a written test in their discipline and required to teach portions of their curriculum as part of a practicum test. Participants should be familiar with the shooting disciplines they choose; they will not be teaching participants to shoot but rather how to use shooting sports as a youth development tool.

The Spring 2010 North Carolina 4-H Target Shooting Sports Workshop will be held April 9-11, 2010 at Millstone 4-H Camp, near Ellerbe, NC. The workshop is designed to equip adult volunteers to work with youth in 4-H Target Shooting Sports Clubs. Participants will have the opportunity to share ideas and information while enhancing their skills in teaching youth through the use of the National 4-H Shooting Sports curriculum materials.

A total of 75 participants will be selected for the workshop - no more than 15 in each of the following disciplines: shotgun, hunting, archery, muzzleloading, and rifle (note: accepted applicants will participate in only one discipline throughout the entire weekend long training).

If selected, Alleghany 4-H will cover the registration fee. Applications are due to the Extension Office by Monday, March 15. Click HERE for an application. For more information contact the Extension Office at (336) 372-5597 or e-mail Amy at
