Warren County 4-H Shooting Sports is gearing up for another session in January. Those interested in the program are urged to attend a Dec. 1 meeting. Pictured, from left, are Jamison Helton, Casper Cossitt, and Matthew Lasser participating in a previous program.

The fifth annual Warren County 4-H Shooting Sports program will be offered in January, but an interest meeting has been scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 1. 

“When people think of 4-H, the first things that come to mind are livestock projects, baking competitions, and sewing groups,” said Emily Mote, 4-H Extension agent. “While these activities are still very popular with 4-H members, a new 4-H program is sparking the interest of many Warren County youth.”

Called 4-H Shooting Sports, the program teaches life skills and STEM principles through shooting sports. Students have the opportunity to learn safety and shooting techniques in air pistol, archery, hunting, muzzleloader, rifle, and shotgun. 

Warren County’s 4-H Shooting Sports program is entering its fifth year. The discipline offered is shotgun. This program is open to any students in grades 6-12 in Warren County interested in learning about or advancing their skills in shooting trap and skeet. UT-TSU Extension offers its programs to everyone. 

An interest meeting will be held Wednesday, Dec. 1 beginning at 5 p.m. It will take place in the Magnolia Room, which is located in Warren County Administrative Offices on Locust Street. 

“During the Dec. 1 meeting, we will discuss practice details, participation fees, and other important information,” said Mote.

If you have any questions regarding this program or are interested in becoming a member of the 4-H program, call the UT-TSU Extension office at 473-8484.
