To participate, youth must be 8-years-old by December 31 and complete their enrollment in 4-H before the March 1 deadline. (Returning members must enroll by the January 15 deadline.) Be sure to choose the Shooting Sports project and then each discipline individually. To learn more about enrollment, visit the Join 4-H page on the Larimer County Extension website.
All youth enrolling in any discipline MUST turn in a Shooting Sports Liability Waiver WITH the 4-H enrollment form at the Extension Office. If you do not submit the waiver, you will not be enrolled in 4-H, not covered under 4-H insurance, and not able to participate in any practices!
Each Shooting Sports discipline holds mandatory orientations and safety trainings. All participants, both new and returning, must attend the scheduled orientation for each discipline before they will be allowed to take part in practices.
All participants must attend a minimum of four county practices for each discipline in which they wish to participate in the County Shoot.
If participating in .22 Rifle and Air Rifle, the youth may opt to attend two practices in each discipline rather than four in each. This does not apply to practices for any other discipline.
Information meetings, orientations, safety meetings, and workshops do not count as practices.
Two club practices conducted by a leader state-certified in the discipline will count if the following conditions are met:
List of planned Club practices sent to the Extension Office by April 1. A list of additional practices should be submitted one week prior to the time the practice is held.
Other 4-H members may participate in the practice provided the range will accommodate increased numbers.
The attendance list must be submitted by the certified 4-H Shooting Sports Leader to the 4-H Extension Agent within one week for the practice to count.
