The Fall 2013 North Carolina 4-H Shooting Sports Workshop will be held at the Eastern 4-H Center October 11-13th, 2013. Nationally certified 4-H Shooting Sports instructors from our state will direct the learning experiences. Participants must be at least 21 years old and be registered as a 4-H volunteer in their county. Participants will be selected through an application process. No more than 15 participants will be selected in the disciplines of rifle, shotgun, archery, muzzleloading and hunting. The cost for the weekend workshop is $75 per person.
North Carolina 4-H trains adult volunteers each year to work with our youth in 4-H Target Shooting Sports Programs. These volunteers and professionals have been trained by instructors who have completed a week-long training workshop and are now nationally certified 4- H Shooting Sports instructors. This workshop is designed to equip adult volunteers to work with youth in 4-H 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. **Please note: In order for a 4-H club to be involved in the shooting sports project, a 4-H shooting sports trained 4-H volunteer must coordinate the project.**
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.
Completed applications must be at the Eastern 4-H Center office by October 1st,2013. Please click on the link below for more information and registration forms:
