Jay Waldron Hired as Asst. National Shotgun Coach & Resident Program Manager


Jay Waldron, a 1992


Olympian in Trap, has been hired by USA Shooting as its new Assistant National Shot- gun Coach and Resident Program Manager. He’ll work alongside National Team Coach Todd Graves to help manager the current program with an emphasis on preparing and developing talent within USA Shooting’s Resident Athlete shotgun program based in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Over the past two years,


Waldron has worked in a part-time, voluntary role as the Assistant National Team coach, helping guide a pro- gram that earned 13 World Cup and 11 World Champi- onship medals in 2014. “The hiring of Jay to as-


sist me with building and developing this program and ensuring its continued suc- cess is the next great step in our progression,” said Graves. “My former team- mate and one of the best Trap shooters ever, Jay un- derstands the level at which


we need to compete and has the athletes interest in mind. Having him in Colorado Springs with the talent we have there will help bolster that program by ensuring the athletes are receiving the best coaching and guid- ance possible.” Waldron, previously a


coach at the Hillsboro Trap & Skeet Club in Eugene, Or- egon, competed in the 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelo- na, Spain, and earned a spot in the Finals after shooting a 195/200. Waldron was a two-time Junior World Clay Target Champion, earning those titles in back-to-back events in 1983 and 1985 respectively. Also in 1985, he won the Junior title at the Championship of the Ameri- cas. In 1991 and 1992, he was a contender in almost every match he was in, in- cluding gold and silver in two 1992 World Cups, as well as making Finals in three oth- ers. In 1991, he fi nished fi fth in Trap and seventh in Double Trap at the World


Championship while also winning the Pan American Games. “The last two years work-


ing with the resident athletes and US Team members on a part-time basis has been an absolutely great experience. I am unbelievably excited to join the USAS staff and get to work out here in Colorado Springs full-time. We have a great group of athletes in our resident shotgun program
