The Highland County 4-H Shooting Sports is a regular 4-H club. We include all the core elements of the 4-H program such as a youth development, skill development, leadership skills, interaction with positive adult role models, career exploration, and safety education. The Highland County 4-H Shooting Sports program promotes responsibility, decision making and identifying realistic, personal goals.
The Highland County 4-H Shooting Sports Club is a leader directed program taught only by certified volunteer instructors to 4-H members. All adult volunteer instructors have attended up to 18 hours of specialized training in the disciplines they are presenting to the 4-H members. The Ohio 4-H Shooting Sports has state workshops to equip leaders to deliver and promote the 4-H program.
The Highland County 4-H Shooting Sports Club will hold its organizational meeting at 10 a.m. Saturday, March 3 at the Highland County Coon Hunters.
We want to invite any young person 9 years of age as of the first of the year.
We will open up with a regular business meeting to take care of old business.
After the short business meeting, 4-H enrollment papers will be passed out to be completed.
