Safety and Education in Shooting Sports

4-H Safety and Education in Shooting Sports (SESS) uses skills and disciplines of shooting to assist young people and their leaders in obtaining knowledge and developing life skills. The disciplines include archery, rifle, shotgun, muzzleloader, and wildlife skills.

Youth will learn safe and responsible use of firearms and archery equipment including sound decision making, self-discipline, and concentration. They will promote the highest standards of safety, sportsmanship, and ethical behavior. This program encourages understanding of our natural resources and the development of a personal environmental stewardship ethic through participation in shooting, hunting, and related activities.
