Welcome to the NC 4-H Shooting Sports program! The 4-H Shooting Sports Program is a youth development education program, which uses a prevention education model that strongly emphasizes positive youth-adult interaction and peer leadership. It uses skills and disciplines of safe shooting and conservation to assist young people and their leaders in attaining knowledge and developing essential life skills. The program can enhance family communications and quality time together. It creates an environment for a caring relationship between a young person and a significant adult, whether this is a family member, other adult, or teen volunteer. These activities provide the opportunity for immediate gratification to the youth and satisfaction and self-worth to the adult/teen leader who acts as teacher and role model for younger 4-H youth members. The program relies on 4-H certified instructors to conduct classes in the various disciplines (archery, pistol, shotgun, muzzle loading, rifle, wildlife/hunting, and coordinator).
Each local program is guided under the administration of the 4-H County Extension Agent and must be guided and delivered by an instructor that has been certified by the NC 4-H Shooting Sports Coordinator, registered in the 4-H Online system and endorsed as a volunteer through the N.C. Cooperative Extension background check process.
The primary focus of the North Carolina 4-H Shooting Sports program shall be the total development of the young person.
