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.
