Project S.A.F.E. BB & Archery

S.A.F.E. BB Team

Our parent and child meeting for this season's team will be on Monday, September 18 at 6:30 PM at the 

4-H office. 

Parents must register ahead of time to make sure there is a spot available. We are tentatively setting the limit at 14 shooters, but that may change in the future. We will supply the BB guns, but you will need to provide your own safety glasses and targets for home practice. Practices will start in February. BB is open to boys and girls 4th-9th grade students. Practices will be at the Habersham County Fairgrounds beginning at 5:30 p.m. 

S.A.F.E. Archery Overview

Our parent and child meeting for this season's team will be on Monday, September 18 at 6:30 PM at the 

4-H office. 

Youth 4th grade and up, from 9-19 enjoy learning the discipline of shooting compound bows with the help of certified volunteer coaches. Most shoots involve FITA rules and sometimes include a 3-D component.  We need 1-2 more dedicated coaches to step up to formalize options for moving forward. We typically have 20-25 kids at practices whenever we offer the activity. So it's more than 1-2 coaches can facilitate. To ensure safety, we reserve the right to limit teams.  For more information about the Habersham County 4-H Archery Team, contact Steven Patrick at or call (706) 754-2318.  Registration is starting now for the indoor season ending in January.

Becoming a Certified Coach

Certified Coaches and adult leaders are instrumental in delivering S.A.F.E. Programs on both the county and state levels. If you are interested in becoming a certified coach and volunteer for your local 4-H program, contact your local county Extension office. To become a certified coach, you must:

Meet the volunteer screening requirements of the University of Georgia which includes filling out an application with the local county office, submitting references and undergoing a background check conducted by the University.

Volunteers must also complete Chaperone Training if they plan to be the leader of a group or accompany youth on overnight trips. Chaperone Training is completed during the State SAFE Certified Coaches training.

To lead SAFE (Shooting Sports Programs) leaders must attend a Certified Coaches Training. These are held three times a year at Rock Eagle 4-H Center (Friday Evening-Sunday Morning). Interested adult leaders that would like to work with SAFE programs are registered for the state-level training through their county offices.  Training courses will be offered
