Register online here
What is the workshop all about?
The workshop will be composed of 18 hours of training. Twelve hours of that time will be for a specific discipline with the 4-H Shooting Sports project area. Training will cover the curriculum and lesson plans from the National 4-H Shooting Sports program, opportunities to teach to your peer group, or youth and a range practicum. The philosophy and principles of working with 4-H youth is a critical part of the training.
To attend volunteers must completeall four parts of the 4-H Child Protection and Safety Policy screening process by the registration deadline. Contact your county Extension Office to fill out the forms. If background checks for registered participants have not been completed by this date, the county extension office will be charged an additional $10 for each incomplete screening. The county will still need to complete the official CPSP process and pay any required fees
A participant must select only ONE of the following disciplines in which to receive training. It is suggested that leaders from a county coordinate efforts and cover as many different disciplines as possible. If a county doesn’t currently have a coordinator and wants to participate in this training, at least one of its leaders must attend the Coordinator discipline. Discipline choices are:
Coordinator Rifle (small bore or air rifle) • Shotgun • Archery • Wildlife Skills
Think County Programs
Suggested guidelines recommend that programs be “county club” programs. One reason involves leader recruitment. The best programs are run as county programs which allow leaders to specialize in a discipline rather than having to cross certify in several disciplines in order to meet the needs of 4-H members. County programs also allow for coordination of resource development - cash or equipment. Instructors in county-wide programs are also less likely to “burn out.” In addition, a county program relies on several leaders and is therefore more easily maintained from year to year.
