Shooting Sports

prone lineThe Washington state 4-H shooting sports project focus on the development of youth as individuals and as responsible and productive citizens. Youth learn marksmanship, the safe and responsible use of firearms and the principles of hunting.  The activities of the project with the support of caring adult leaders provide young people with opportunities to develop life skills, self-worth, and conservation ethics. We promote the highest standards of safety, sportsmanship, ethical behavior.

The shooting disciplines include archery, muzzle loading, pistol, rifle, shotgun and hunting. Each discipline is taught by a National or State 4-H Certified Leader. 4-H members have opportunities to test their shooting, hunting, and sportsmanship skills in county, regional, state, and national competitions. In fact, they could ultimately set Olympic competition or motion science as their goal.

Congratulations to the 2016 Shooting Sports Championship Contestants!

Here are the results from the 2016 shooting sports championship. The event was a learning experience for many. Rain combined with cold wind taught members why practice shooting in more than one environment is helpful. We experienced many challenging equipment failures but in all 179 youth braved the weather and did their best!
