IMPORTANT NOTICE TO INSTRUCTORS!
ALL current New York State 4-H Shooting Sports Instructors are REQUIRED to update their Instructor Training to the NEW National 4-H Shooting Sports and New York State 4-H Shooting Sports Guidelines.
Instructors Have Two (2) Options:
- Attend one (1) of the 14-hour programs to be offered this year in person (you may participate in a new discipline at that time); or
- Participate in a shorter in-person or web based online retraining that is currently offered as needed (expected to be about 2-3 hours of online training). New manuals for the first two programs you primarily teach in will be provided at either the in-person training or mailed to your county office.
All instructors who have NOT taught in the last two (2) years OR who are NOT currently an approved member of their County 4-H Program have been REMOVED from the New York State 4-H Shooting Sports Instructor list and their information has been placed in the inactive file.
Inactive Instructors seeking to regain active status MUST re-establish themselves as an enrolled qualified 4-H Program Volunteer and complete the full New York State Training in order to become an active New York State 4-H Shooting Sports Instructor.
PLEASE NOTE: Your County 4-H Educator MUST sign each Registration Form for any applicant in order for the applicant to gain admission into New York State 4-H Shooting Sports Instructor Training. Registration Forms without the appropriate Educator’s signature will be turned away.
