2019 SS&W Spring Leader Certification Training - Mark Your Calendars!

The Minnesota 4-H Shooting Sports & Wildlife Program Development Committee invites you to attend a 4-H Shooting Sports & Wildlife Leader Certification. The Committee recommends that leaders attend the entire certification weekend every 5 years. Now is your chance to attend!

The training is designed for adults and youth (9th grade and older) that lead or would like to lead training in shooting sports or wildlife. Classes will be offered in the disciplines of coordinator, archery, rifle/pistol, shotgun, muzzleloading, and wildlife. This training meets the 4-H project leaders' requirements for certification and recertification. Although there is range time allocated in the schedule, the majority of the training is classroom work to become an effective instructor, not to practice your own shooting skills.

Trainings:

April 27-28, 2019 – 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. – SCALE Facility, Jordan, MN

May 4-5, 2019 – 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. – Isanti County, MN

Who can attend?

4-H youth leaders grade 9 and higher, and adult 4-H volunteers. All youth must be enrolled in the current 4-H year, and all adults must be enrolled as screened adult volunteers before participating in this certification training. County or regional Extension offices are responsible for recruiting participants for the shooting sports & wildlife leaders certification training.

Register:

Registration materials will be available around February 15th and can be found online at https://extension.umn.edu/4-h-events/shooting-sports-wildlife-leader-certification.
