Ross County 4-H Shooting Sports Info

We're excited to offer such disciplines as Archery, Air Guns, Rifle, Shotgun, Pistol, Muzzle-Loading and Living History. Now is the time to get involved! FREE classes will be forming soon.

This leader-directed program is taught only by Certified Shooting Sports Instructors to 4-H members ages 9 -19. Youth will learn the safe and responsible use of archery equipment and the fundamentals of fire-arms. All shooting and safety equipment are supplied.

If you would like to participate, please call the office (702-3200) for the Advisors contact information AFTER the Ross County Fair and BEFORE October in order to attend the basic discipline classes.  Shooting Sports training is progressive and the participants/members need to attend the basic classes.

To enroll in this as a 4-H project, you will need to sign up for the Instructor-led discipline in your OWN 4-H Club by the March 1 project deadline!  (in other words, to get credit for the project, you need to write the project on your enrollment form within your own club)

Each discipline requires 6 classes. You may miss one time without having to make up missed classes. The last class will include testing on material taught. All disciplines count as 4-H projects, and include a project book.

You will receive your project books, work on your project requirements, and be judged when you meet with your instructor.
