The California 4-H Shooting Sports Program instructs 4-H youth on the skills and discipline of shooting sports. Participants learn about the safe handling of firearms and archery equipment while developing self-confidence and leadership abilities.

The 4-H Shooting Sports Program follows a standardized format, lists program components, and identifies clearly intended learning outcomes. For more information, please see the complete California 4-H Shooting Sports Program Policies and Procedures (PDF). The 4-H Shooting Sports Advisory Committee offers insight, review, and recommendations for the operation and management of the Shooting Sports program for the California 4-H Youth Development Program.
