4-H members interested in the 4-H Shooting Sports Program should contact their UI Extension county office. For information on related projects, visit the Environmental Education and Earth Sciences project pages.
Volunteer instructors are needed to lead 4-H Shooting Sports programs in all discipline areas: archery, hunting, muzzleloader/black powder, pistol, rifle and shotgun. To volunteer, contact your UI Extension county office.
Volunteers must be certified as 4-H volunteer leaders, done with the E-Learning Modules for Shooting Sports Certification Training and trained in the discipline they teach.
There are 11 modules (plus eight to 11 hours of face-to-face discipline training) instructors must complete to receive volunteer certification.
Each module ends with an online quiz. Certification is not issued until all quizzes are completed.
Module 3 is not available, but all other modules must be completed.
Leaders who already completed the E-Learning Modules for Working with Youth should provide copies of their certificates or the dates they completed those modules. They may be brought to the discipline training.
To request paper copies of the materials and quizzes, contact the UI Extension 4-H Youth Development office.
These modules were developed by Idaho, Washington, Oregon, California and Nevada to enhance the 4-H Shooting Sports certification process.
