We want the members to spend as much time on the shooting range as possible and not waiting in line to check in forms or be missing a form and not be able to shoot that day.  All six items must be turned in, in order to shoot.  No exceptions.

Each member must submit 4 required forms, the $25 fee and a copy of their Hunters Safety Certificate:

If you were in the rifle project, you only need to send in your dues.

Shooting Sports Leader Certification

A statewide Shooting Sports Leader Certification workshop will be held to teach leaders how to conduct safe, supervised, shooting experiences for 4-H members enrolled in shooting sports projects and to complete required leader certification.

A Wisconsin 4-H Shooting Sports Leader may be certified in archery, coordinator, muzzleloader, pistol, rifle and shotgun disciplines. Leaders may only teach in the discipline in which they are certified. An adult leader cannot provide hands-on or safety instruction without a certified leader supervising the range.

All leaders must first complete one 12-hour workshop to be certified. After that, you may be eligible to attend a Saturday, eight-hour range workshop to receive an additional discipline certification. If three years lapse before adding an additional certification, the full 12-hour certification must be repeated. Only one certification may be obtained at any one certification workshop.

2016 Certification Workshops

See the Wisconsin 4-H Website for the dates and registration information for certification workshops. 

The 4-H Foundation will pay the registration cost of the workshop.

Cost:

$70—Includes instructor manuals, equipment, ammunition, Friday pm snack, Saturday lunch, and Saturday am and pm snacks, or

$55—Saturday discipline-only—Leaders who completed a certification workshop in 2012, 2013 and spring 2014, may only need register for a Saturday discipline session of choice and pay a reduced $55 workshop fee.
