4-H Shooting Sports ready to inspire youth to try something new at open house

Clark County youth ages 8-18 have the chance to try something new at the 4-H Shooting Sports FUNdamentals Open House on March 19. Youth will rotate through several stations at the Clark County Sportsmans Club east of Marshall starting at 8:30 a.m., including a safety meeting, archery, air rifle, air pistol, hunting and outdoor skills, shotgun, and lunch.

One of the Clark County 4-H Shooting Sports leaders, Tresa Morris, says, "Youth can participate at their comfort level and should come ready to try something new." She also stresses the event is outdoors, and participants should dress appropriately. 

Parents and guardians need to attend as well, and there is a mandatory meeting for them at noon. Clark County Shooting Sports also seeks experienced youth volunteers who have been a part of the program and can assist at the stations.  

Because shooting sports require safety protocols and small instructor to youth ratios, registration for this event is required. More information and registration are available online at

If you need reasonable accommodation to participate, please contact the Illinois Extension Office at 217-826-5422.
