“Fire Power” 4-H Shooting Sports Club

Like all of our 4-H programs, the purpose of the shooting sports program is youth development and the teaching of life skills to young people.
 
Our programs are valuable for helping young people develop self-confidence, personal discipline, responsibility, teamwork, self-esteem and sportsmanship. The discipline and self-control required for responsible firearms and archery use carries over into many other aspects of life.
