S.A.F.E. Shotgun Team

 

What is the 4-H S.A.F.E. Shotgun Program?

The 4-H S.A.F.E. Shotgun Program is a Georgia 4-H Project S.A.F.E sport. S.A.F.E. stands for Shooting Awareness, Fun and Education. The program introduces 4-H'ers to the sport of shooting; promotes shooting safety; develops discipline, poise, and self-control, and re-enforces the concept of teamwork and good sportsmanship.

What will 4-H shotgun participants learn?

During meeting times participants will learn the fundamentals of shooting and work on the skills needed to do well in the shooting sport. Participants will also learn the importance of safety in the shooting sport. Participants will have the opportunity to qualify at the Southeast District Qualifying Match and advance to the State Modified Trap and/or Trap & Skeet Match in the Spring.

Who can participate?

Any youth, in 7th - 12th grade may join the Shotgun Team.

Where does the Washington County 4-H Shotgun Team meet?
