SAFETY. COMES. FIRST.
Any 4-H’er who wishes to participate in shooting sports in Montgomery County MUST first attend a one-time, in-classroom safety training.
- There is no substitution for this requirement.
- Every shooter in any discipline, including archery, must attend prior to being allowed to practice.
- The classes tend to be offered in August to September to facilitate new shooters coming in as the new year kicks off. Sometimes they are scheduled at other times depending not just on the interest level but also volunteer availability.
To put your youth on the list to be notified of an upcoming class date, add them https://agrilife.org/montgomery4h/shooting-sports-safety-interest-list/ along with which discipline is preferred. Due to the nature of shooting sports, there are quite a few detailed rules it is critical everyone knows and follows. But remember, FUN and safety are the primary goals.
We Need Coaches
In Montgomery County, shooting sports is an exceptionally popular project. This is a blessing but also presents a challenge. Practices will and do fill up, especially at the beginning of each year. As a program, we rely on volunteers, for whom we are very grateful. In order to continue to accommodate interested 4-H’ers, we need to identify and train more coaches. All our 4-H’ers are counting on volunteers like you. Please consider becoming a certified coach. This is the only way we could raise the clubs’ practice capacity and might be able to increase night or time slot options.
Ready To Commit? Pick The Right Club

Their practice locations vary but are all closer to Conroe than other less central parts of the county.
