Fall 2010 4-H Target Shooting Sports Workshop

October 22-24, 2010 at Millstone 4-H Camp
Deadline to register: October 14th

The Fall 2010 North Carolina 4-H Target Shooting Sports Workshop will be held October 22-24, 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.

We will be accepting a total of 75 participants for the workshop - no more than 15 in each of the following disciplines: shotgun, pistol, archery, muzzleloading, and rifle (note: accepted applicants will participate in only one discipline throughout the entire weekend long training). Participants are required to pay a $75 fee to help offset some of the cost for the workshop. We are asking that all participants be registered with their local Extension office as 4-H volunteers prior to attending our workshop.

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; we will not be teaching participants to shoot but rather how to use shooting sports as a youth development tool.

Deadline to register is October 14th. If you are interested in attending, please contact the Extension Office at 336-372-5597. Applications can be found HERE and should be turned in at the Alleghany Office. Scholarships for the $75 fee are available. There are expectations on the county level once you have attended training.
