SHOOTING SPORTS

Get kids on target through the 4-H shooting sports project!   Sanborn County has had an active 4-H Shooting Sports program for many years. Shooters do not need to be a 4-H member to participate but must be at 8 years old as of January 1st.


Members can learn safety and shooting techniques for BB gun, air rifle, air pistol, and archery, as well as 22 rifle and shotgun.
They'll learn how to handle firearms responsibly for target practice and hunting and learn respect for the natural environment. 

Our certified shooting instructors are Art and Audrey Kneen, Robert Kneen, Daniel Kneen, Henry and Paula Linke, Brian Pauly, Stacy Eddy, Jeff Hagman, Joyce Linke, Eric Kneen, Joel Rassel, Bus Ettswold, Kate Schelske, Mark Schelske, Sarah Burkel, Scott Senska and Paul Swenson.

We are extremely thankful to have been the recipient of grants from NRA in past years, that has allowed us to purchase quality equipment for our program.  Scroll down for information and pictures about the grant equipment.

We kicked off our 2018 Shooting Sports practice season on Sunday, January 7th.  We offer practice every Sunday from 2-6 pm (unless noted differently below) with guns practice at the 4-H Building and archery practice across the road at the Sand Creek Archery building.  We also offer practice on Tuesday nights from 6-9 pm for guns only.


All disciplines and all ages are required to complete safety training.

Objectives
The goal of all 4-H Youth Development programs is youth development. All the project areas work toward developing the skills youth need to be productive and positive adults in our society. Decision making, teamwork, problem solving, being responsible and having high self-esteem are just a few of the many skills 4-H helps to develop. 


Specific objectives for the 4-H Shooting Sports program are:
  • To encourage participation in environmental and outdoor education programs by exposing youth to shooting, hunting and other related activities.
  • To support youth in developing valuable conservation and natural resources related knowledge, skills and stewardship.
  • To enhance development of self-concept, character and personal growth through safe, educational and socially acceptable involvement in shooting.
  • To teach safe and responsible use of firearms and archery equipment.
  • To promote the highest standards of safety, sportsmanship, ethical behavior, and conservation.
  • To strengthen families through participation in lifelong recreational activities.
  • To provide hands-on learning experiences.
