Participation in the 4-H Shooting Sports has steadily grown in recent years and with this growth comes a greater demand for volunteer instructors. The 4-H model is a comprehensive youth development program that utilizes shooting sports as a way of connecting with young people teaching life skills such as teamwork, respect, and discipline as well as safety and enjoyment. Currently there are certified 4-H Shooting Sports Instructors in every county in the state and that list is growing.
Two Instructor Training Workshops are scheduled for this spring and are now open for registration:
April 22 – 23, 2017: Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine Headquarters, Augusta
June 16 – 18, 2017: University of Maine 4H Camp and Learning Center at Bryant Pond
Cost to complete the training is $75 per person. Instructors must be at least 21 years of age.
