Club enrollment for 2024 is now open for our Yancey County 4-H Longshots Club!

In this club, youth learn about firearm education, safety, and participate in shooting sports activities, including shotgun, rifle and archery. Youth have the opportunity to participate in regional, district and state competitions. Open to youth ages 8-18 (as of January 1st of the current year).

Due to the overwhelming amount of interest in the club, the club is only accepting 20 members per discipline (10 juniors- ages 8-13 and 10 seniors- ages 14-18). Priority is given to youth who have previously participated in the club and regularly (70% or more) attended club practices and meetings in 2023. Families interested in joining will be added to a wait list. Once previous members join, any remaining spaces will be filled using a lottery system until capacity is reached.
