2019 Shooting Sports Competition

The Louisiana 4-H Shooting Sports program encompasses the initiative goals of volunteer leadership, capacity building for youth and families, and the environmental stewardship with commitments from the Louisiana State University AgCenter. The 4-H Shooting Sports Program is an active program that is attractive to both youth and adults. The program uses positive learning and interaction with youth and adult role models. The disciplines are modeled after the National 4-H Shooting Sports Program and are administered by nationally certified-state leaders consisting of extension personnel and volunteers.

Mission Statement: The mission of the Louisiana 4-H Shooting Sports Program is to assist youth in acquiring knowledge, developing life skills, and forming attitudes so that they may become self-directing, productive, and contributing members of society.

The program is designed to:

  • Assist youth to learn safe and responsible use of shooting equipment.
  • Promote the highest standards of safety, sportsmanship and ethical behavior.
  • Enhance self-confidence, self-concept, decision making, character, personal development, responsibility, and sportsmanship.
  • Develop leadership and citizenship within 4-H parameters for youth and adults.
  • Expand 4-H membership and involve more volunteer adult leaders.
  • To strengthen families through participation in life-long recreational activities.
  • Create an appreciation and understanding of natural resources.
  • To encourage participation in natural resources and related natural science programs by exposing participants to the content through hunting/fishing and related activities.
