Coaches Earn Credentials During the Wisconsin NRA Level 1 Coaches Class

Nineteenimage004 (1) coaches earned their NRA coaching credentials during the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) Level 1 Coaches Class hosted by the Daniel Boone Conservation League in Wisconsin on February 6-7, 2016. The Shooting Coach Program is a cooperative effort of the NRA, USA Shooting, and the Civilian Marksmanship Program.  The NRA Level 1 Pistol Coaches Class now includes action shooting as one of the disciplines.  The Scholastic Action Shooting Program (SASP) is the model for action shooting. The additional ccoach classoaches were needed to address the huge growth several of the Wisconsin teams have experienced since last year.  One team actually has grown from 15 last year to 50 this year and that growth was seen even before the new rifle program was announced.  Congratulations new coaches and good luck on a successful season with your athletes. The next pistol coaches’ class on the schedule is in Plymouth, Michigan, April 2 & 3, 2016.  Are you looking to host a coaches’ class in your area?
