4-H Shooting Sports strives to enable young people 8 to 18 years old, their parents, and adult volunteers to become responsible, self-directed, and productive members of society via involvement in shooting sports activities. MSU Extension professionals coordinate 4-H Shooting Sports statewide. Hundreds of MSU Extension employees and adult volunteers deliver the program throughout Mississippi.

These are the goals of the 4-H Shooting Sports​ program:

  • To enhance development of self-concept, character, and personal growth through safe, educational, and socially acceptable involvement in shooting-related activities.
  • To teach safe and responsible use of sporting equipment to include firearms and archery equipment.
  • To promote the highest standards of safety, sportsmanship, and ethical behavior.
  • To expose participants to the broad array of vocational and lifelong avocational activities related to the 4-H Shooting Sports program.
  • To strengthen families through participation in lifelong recreational activities.
  • To complement and enhance the impact of existing safety and shooting educational programs using experiential educational methods and progressive development of skills and abilities.

The information in the 4-H Shooting Sports Event Handbook will help you conduct your program and provide our young people with the best program in the country.

Remember: Safety should never be compromised for any reason!
