Certifications / Memberships
I started getting involved in handgun coaching back in the late 1980's. When I got back into the shooting sports, I decided to make sure that I had a strong theoretical background. Fortunately, in Canada and the USA, there are some good programs available. As such, I have the opportunity to make the best use of both systems. Please note: I focus on ISSF pistol coaching ("olympic" style) and not action shooting.
The Coaching Association of Canada runs courses for coaching theory certification as part of the National Coaching Certification Program. The Shooting Federation of Canada (SFC) and it's provincial affiliates deliver technical coaching courses for rifle, handgun and shotgun throughout Canada.
My current certifications are as follows:
My current memberships include:
You owe it to yourself and your sport to become involved. Join your national and provincial/state shooting sport governing body. Learn as much as you can and pass it along to someone else. Its a win-win relationship for everyone.
