Shooting Sports is a safe, fun and challenging activity that can become a lifelong passion to be shared with the entire family. The safe and responsible use of firearms and archery equipment is the primary focus of the 4-H Shooting Sports program. Members will improve their marksmanship skills, have the opportunity to compete, and learn self-discipline and personal responsibility. All 4-H shooting sports leaders must attend a state training workshop and become certified in their shooting discipline before serving as project leaders.


The purpose of the Teton County 4-H Shooting Sports program is to educate youth about the safe handling and operation of firearms, as well as provide a safe environment where both youth and adults can enjoy shooting sports.  This project is designed to enhance a young shooter’s experience and teach them the basics of safe and effective shooting.
