National Championships

Youth interested in qualifying for Wisconsin’s 2019 4-H Shooting Sports National Championships Team will compete in Competitive Shoots across the state in 2018. Scores from these competitive shoots will be used to determine who will represent Wisconsin on the 2019 National Championships Team.

A summary of scores required to qualify for national and the location of the various 4-H Shooting Sports events across Wisconsin in 2018 can be found at WI Qualifying Requirements for the 4-H National Championships. Tournament rules and and registration forms for competitive shooting sports events scheduled to date are posted at the  2018 Competitive Shoots page. Shoot scores that qualify for national are designated as National Qualifying Event or NQE.

Those who meet the national age requirement will automatically have their qualifying scores submitted for consideration on the Wisconsin Team. For example, if you shoot in the required number of statewide events for your discipline(s) in 2018, you will receive notification to complete an application in December 2018 for the 2019   National Championships that will take place June 23 – 28, 2019 at Grand Island, Nebraska.
