McLennan County 4-H sharpshooters is a program for youth 3rd grade- 12th grade (ages 8-18).
They are taught various disciplines of firearms, safety, use, handling and competition.
The focus of all 4-H programs is the development of youth as individuals and as responsible and productive citizens. The National 4-H Shooting Sports Program stands out as an example. Youth learn marksmanship, the safe and responsible use of firearms, the principles of hunting and archery, and much more. The activities of the program and the support of caring adult leaders provide young people with opportunities to develop life skills, self-worth, and conservation ethics.
