Participants must register online before the workshop. Space is limited, and registration will be accepted on a "first registered - first served" basis.  Please select sessions you are sure your 4-H'er can attend.  If the minimum number of registrations for a particular workshop is not received, the workshop may be cancelled.

PLEASE NOTE: if you register for a workshop and do not show up, you will not be refunded. You will be put on the bottom of the list so that there are more opportunities for other youth, due to participation requirements.

A $10.00 FEE for supplies should be paid upon completing the registration below.  If unable to pay in advance, the fee must be paid on site. Shotguns, 20-gauge shotgun shells and clays are provided. Hearing and eye safety equipment will be available to borrow if needed. You are encouraged to use your own personal shotgun if you have one. Anyone wishing to bring their own shotgun must be transported legally by a responsible adult with a FOID card.  All personal shotguns must pass a safety evaluation by the range officials prior to the workshop. If 4-H members and parents are available to come early to help set up or stay late to put equipment away the instructors would appreciate their help.

**Participants must be enrolled in 4-H, in a Shooting Sports SPIN Club, and enrolled in Shotgun as a 4-H project to attend this workshop. Additionally, they need to complete a medical form and release of liability form EACH YEAR and return it to the Extension Office or bring the completed forms to the workshop.
