National Championships

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

(Covid-19 has reduced the 2022 National Team selection process to fewer events. Please see 2022 National Team Selection below which applies only to the 2022 team selection. The plan is to return to a full schedule of events in 2022 for team selection in 2023.)

A summary of scores required to qualify for national and the location of the various 4-H Shooting Sports events across Wisconsin can be found at WI Qualifying Requirements for the 4-H National Championships. Tournament rules and registration forms for competitive shooting sports events scheduled to date are posted at the 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, you will receive notification to complete an application in December for the National Championships that will take place next Summer at Grand Island, Nebraska.
