The United States has a proud Olympic shooting sports heritage which has brought home 107 Olympic Shooting medals since the very first Modern Olympic Games in 1896. USA Shooting is the National Governing Body (NGB) for Olympic shooting sports in the United States. USA Shooting is dedicated to supporting those athletes who have chosen to pursue the Olympic dream.
USA Shooting recognizes the importance to have educated, trained and experienced coaches on the ground before a successful Olympic Shooting Sports program can be started up and develop future Olympic shooting athletes.
The USA Shooting Coach Academy has been developed to fill a void in Olympic shooting sports coach education. It is our goal to provide every coach with the tools to successfully coach their athletes. A high-quality experience is one in which every athlete:
- Is coached using up-to-date training principles
- Learns the skills, tactics and strategies of the sport and improves as an athlete
- Feels like an important part of the team regardless of performance
- Learns "life lessons" that have value beyond the range
- Has fun shooting
