The SAFE 4-H Coaches and Staff are gearing up for the 2022-2023 Shooting Sports Teams!

Georgia 4-H youth learn many valuable life skills and develop a sense of belonging, teamwork, and confidence.


We encourage adults to become Certified 4-H Volunteers and take that even further to become Certified 4-H SAFE Coach. SAFE stands for “Shooting Awareness, Fun, and Education”.

Background screening MUST be completed before any training. The screening process takes time.

To become a 4-H Volunteer: 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.
background screening is required with character references, watch the Risk Management Training video and answer questions at the end (RMT must be completed yearly). Volunteers must also complete Chaperone Training if they plan to be a group leaders or accompany youth on overnight trips.

To become a Project S.A.F.E Volunteer: same above requirements as a volunteer plus a two-day Certified Coach Training at Rock Eagle 4-H Center. Training consists of 9 hours of discipline training( Archery, Pistol, Rifle, or Shotgun) and 4 hours of youth development training that includes working with youth, chartering your 4-H Club, and Risk Management. A $100 deposit is required for the 4-H Office to register you for the class. After attending the training, you will get your deposit back. 4-H fundraisers will pay for the training.
