Youth develop life skills (i.e. decision-making, responsibility) when participating in the 4-H Shooting Sports Program while learning about and practicing the safe and responsible use of firearms and archery equipment. The program is led by volunteer adult and teen leaders who complete a weekend training to become state certified instructors in a shooting discipline.
The Washington County, Ohio 4-H Shooting Sports Program is offered through the Bull's Eye 4-H Club. The Club holds a fall and winter session each year. boys and girls ages 9 to 19 can choose to participation in one or both sessions. Each session include seven meetings where members have hands-on learning in the rifle (air and .22) pistol (air and .22), shotgun (20 gauge), archery and/or living history disciplines.
All shooting equipment and supplies are provided to participants. During business meetings, members decide on and carry out community service projects, promotional displays and recognition activities. information about the next session can be found at
