The Shooting Sports Project is a comprehensive introduction to shooting sports safety and the fundamentals of shooting disciplines including: archery, pistol, rifle, shotgun, muzzleloading, and hunting. Youth may participate in one or more of the listed disciplines, however, all disciplines may not be offered in every county. The project concentrates on a strong youth development approach based upon long-term mentorship. Also offered are district and state-wide family involvement activities, events, and programs for youth of all ages and adults.
