The 4-H Shooting Sports
program is for young people who are interested in shooting and the conservation
of natural resources. The Shooting Sports project fosters responsibility and
helps youth acquire knowledge, skills, abilities and the opportunity to develop
social skills, leadership techniques and community service opportunities. New
York State 4-H certified volunteer instructors supervise each 4-H Shooting
Sports program. Safety is a primary concern. Youth and adults are trained to
know, practice and adhere to the tenets of firearm safety and handling. The CCE
Albany County 4-H Shooting Sports program is open to youth age 11-18 years.
Currently the program offers archery, air pistol and air rifle at the William
Rice, Jr. Extension Center. Our program also includes the Living History
project as well. The program offers participants workshops during the year to
make various projects related to 4-H Shooting Sports.
2019 Spring Session dates TBA
