The Shooting Sports project includes many options for 4-H members.

4-H Shooting Sports is a unique 4-H project in that there are social issues and concerns with the Shooting Sports project that other projects do not deal with.

There is NO exception to this policy for a parent working with his or her own child. Only a certificed 4-H Shooting Sports volunteer may lead andy 4-H member in a 4-H Shooting Sports project.
