The Belmont County Shooting Sports program is an opportunity for youth throughout the county to learn about specific shooting disciplines.  These youth may belong to this program while enrolling in a community 4-H club or by participating only in this program. 

Our Mandatory Safety Meeting for the 2021-22 year is November 17, 2021 at 6:00 p.m. at the Carnes Center. One parent and participating child needs to attend. No make up date. Hope to see you there!

Also we are always looking for volunteers and instructors.if you are interested in helping us out please let us know as soon as possible. Deadline for volunteer applications is January 31, 2022.
