Event Details

There will be workshops to certify 4-H Adult Volunteers as Shooting Sports Leaders or Trainers in the Shooting Sports disciplines of “Archery Project Leader”, and “Rifle Leader”, and “Shotgun Project Leader”, presented in Merced County on the weekend of November 10th and 11th.  You may only attend one workshop for a specific shooting sports discipline and you must attend both days to be certified.  By doing these three popular workshops on the same weekend it will allow counties to ride share and get several shooting sports disciplines completed to bring back to their county.  If you have backgrounds in one of these shooting sports disciplines and have a desire to teach youth, why not step up and share your expertise!

The classes will be Saturday Nov 10th, 9 AM –4 PM, and Sunday, Nov 11th, 9 AM - 2 PM, at the Safety First Shooting Association, River Oaks Range Firearms Training Center, 11584 Shaffer Rd, Winton 95388, in Merced County.   The classes are being hosted by Merced County 4-H.   You must become a 4-H leader and attend both days to receive certification to teach the specific shooting sport at the project, club and camp levels.   The course will include a PowerPoint lecture, review of equipment, practice shooting and teaching, and a written test.   The cost is $35 per person to include a resource binder, with Saturday and Sunday lite breakfast refreshments.   Bring your own Lunch each day.
