Biennial Coach College and Conference set for September in Colorado Springs

USA Shooting will host the

2013 Coach College (Sept. 16- 18) and Coaches Conference (Sept. 19-21 ) for continuing education of USA Shooting coaches and program leaders at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. USA Shooting recognizes that

coaching athletes is one of the most challenging endeavors, while it can be also be one of the most rewarding. The Coach Col- lege and Conference is organized to help USA Shooting coaches meet the challenges of coach- ing competitive athletes. The program is a cooperative effort designed by the National Rifl e Association and USA Shooting. The program is designed for

either those with an interest in becoming a certifi ed coach in

any of the rifl e, pistol or shotgun disciplines or for those certifi ed coaches wanting to expand their skills and get advanced coaching certifi cation. The coach confer- ence is the place to learn from others, network with other coach- es and build a better competitive program at the club, high school and collegiate level. “On-going coach education

and development is an absolute priority for USA Shooting,” said Michael Theimer, 1976 Olympi- an and the Youth Programs and Athlete Development Manager for USA Shooting. “We recog- nize that our ability to develop athletes and strengthen our pipeline can only be as strong as the coaches involved. At a grassroots level, trained coach- es must come fi rst. Without the

coaches on the ground fi rst, you cannot start up or grow a youth program.” So many topics of interest

have been suggested by past attendees that the conference will feature concurrent presen- tations which will allow coaches to attend the conference topics of their choice. There will be a general session on Friday from Noon to 5pm, which will include a special keynote speaker, ath- lete panel, national coach panel, and other cross discipline top- ics. Prior to the conference, a special SCATT clinic for rifl e and pistol coaches will also be held on Thursday, Sept. 19. The rest of the conference will feature ses- sions that will include updates from CMP, NRA Collegiate Pro- grams, ISSF, SCTP, USAS Youth
