NRA/USAS – Level 1 Shotgun Coach School

Level 1 Designation 18 years old. Ages 15-17 designated Junior Trainer.

The normal $175 course fee, reduced to $125 for Scouters includes all course materials except ammunition, targets and travel-related expenses. The fee also includes the initial two-year credential as a Level 1 Shotgun Coach for those successfully completing the course.

The Shotgun Shooting Coach program is a co-operative effort of five National Governing Bodies (NGB) for competitive shooting programs: The National Rifle Association (NRA), USA Shooting USAS, the Amateur Trapshooting Association (ATA), the National Skeet Shooting Association (NSSA), and the National Sporting Clays Association (NSCA). Competitive shooters and shooting teams are athletes and need to be coached like any other athlete. The goal of the Level 1 course is to provide individuals and coaches the knowledge, skills and confidence to coach beginning and intermediate shotgun shooting athletes and efficiently conduct team operations.

The course is divided into classroom sessions and a range session. The course is broken into three topic areas:

1. Fundamentals a. Safety and Risk Management

b. Rule Book Use

c. Equipment

d. Shotgun Shooting Basics

 

2. Coaching a. Ethics

b. Basic Coaching Methodology

c. Coaching Trap

d. Coaching Skeet

e. Sporting Clays

f. Beginning Mental Training

g. Range Exercises

 

3. Team Management a. Planning Training

b. Developing a Quality Shooting Program

 

 

This is not the Basic Shotgun Instructor course, where students are taught generally one time to learn knowledge, skills, and attitude for safe shotgun handling. The coach will have a long-term involvement with athletes, providing leadership, character development and creation of better citizens as they learn how to compete as professionals. BIT is not required, no minimum shooting skill test.

NRA CREDENTIALING FEES

All first time instructors, coaches, and range safety officers pay a flat credentialing fee of $50 for a 2- year term. Additional ratings are added at a rate of $20 per rating. Renewals are $50 for a 2-year term regardless of how many ratings are being renewed. NRA Member Benefit: credentialing fees are $30 for a 2- year term. Additional ratings are added at a rate of $10 per rating. Renewals are $30 for a 2-year term regardless of how many ratings are being renewed. Where trainers had both instructor and coach credentials expiring in different months/years, the closest date has been rolled up to the farthest date for the next renewal cycle. The ability to reprint certificates and ID cards with the extended expiration date occurred with the rollup.

If you are not a NRA member, it is not a requirement but the system works better if you are. The certification fees are cheaper if you are a member. Get your NRA number/have it available before the class.
