Registration for the 2014 Hunting & Wildlife Leader/Coach Trainings will open on 4-H Connect Thursday!
4-H Hunting & Wildlife is a 4-H Shooting Sports discipline and much more. During the 4-H Shooting Sports State Games each summer, youth can register to participate in this discipline that offers live firing events as well as interactive events that challenge the knowledge and skills of the contestant. The live firing events are designed to simulate as closely as possible the type of shooting one would do in a hunting field rather than on a shooting range.
One design of this training is to prepare an adult leader to coach youth in the Hunting & Wildlife Shooting Sports discipline and certify them to train their youth to safely and responsibly use the four firearms (shotgun, smallbore rifle, muzzle loading rifle, and bow) in live firing situations. The training is also designed for any Adult Volunteer Leader wishing to work with their local youth in a hunting or wildlife project or a combination of the two.
Any actively enrolled Adult Volunteer Leader, Extension employee, or senior 4-H youth is eligible for this training. Actively enrolled youth who have reached age 14 by September 1 of the current 4-H year may participate in a training as an Assistant Coach/Leader Candidate. Please Note: to be eligible to become a fully Certified Coach in the Hunting & Wildlife Shooting Sports discipline, you must be minimum 21 years of age or older.
Detailed information will be available soon via the Texas 4-H Natural Resources website and blog.
