The course will include a PowerPoint lecture, review of equipment, practice shooting and teaching, and a written test. The cost is $35 per person to include a resource binder, with Saturday and Sunday lite breakfast refreshments. Bring your own lunch each day.



  • You must be a currently enrolled 4-H volunteer or member.
  • You may only attend one workshop for a specific shooting sports discipline.
  • You must attend both days to be certified to teach the specific shooting sport at the project, club and camp levels.
  • Junior and teen leaders are invited but must attend with an adult or have a certified Shooting Sports adult leader they will be helping back home 

By doing these popular workshops on the same weekend it will allow counties to ride share and get several shooting sports disciplines completed to bring back to their county. If you have backgrounds in one of these shooting sports disciplines and have a desire to teach youth, why not step up and share your expertise!

This class is being hosted by Merced County 4-H.
