4-H Shooting Sports is a national program involving 4-H youth and adult 4-H volunteers. The Wisconsin 4-H program uses the National 4-H Shooting Sports curriculum to teach shooting sports safety to more than 5,000 youth—with over 400 adult volunteer instructors—across the state. Adult instructors are required to successfully complete a twelve-hour certification workshop before they are approved to teach youth. Our educational focus is on life skills development, safety procedures and responsible use of firearms and archery equipment.
The 2018 Western Workshop will be held in the Eau Claire area. Volunteers that participate in the training will be helping with the revival of the 4-H archery program in the form of a SPIN (Special Interest) Club in Buffalo and Pepin Counties. A SPIN Club is open to all youth in 3rd grade and older in Pepin and Buffalo Counties.
