  • The CHS Sport Shooting Club is an organized extracurricular opportunity for our students.  The club is under the supervision of Mr. Hayden Faulk, Mr. David Benefield and Cullman County 4-H. The goal of this program is to nurture youth and teach them safety, responsibility and courteousness all while having fun shooting sporting clays. This is a lifelong skill they will learn and hone while sharing in a team sports environment.

    Sharing, caring and helping each other along the way.
