National Coach Development Staff
IL Directors for the Civilian Marksmanship Program
We are passionate about the shooting sports on many levels. While we train adults so that they may exercise their right to carry a firearm for protection, we thoroughly enjoy coaching young people who are not to the sport or want to be the best they can be in rifle or pistol.
Our mission is to communicate the information that you need to be a safe gun owner, a safe gun handler and a good marksman. We then offer opportunities to apply the skill you have learned. We are here to help you along the way as you grow into a good or even a great marksman.
We step into the classroom or onto the range smiling and ready to build your dream. We love the Shooting Sports, believe in Freedom in America and have the desire to help you learn.
Get to know our experienced team. They have tools, skills, and a desire to help you. Each member works tirelessly to serve our common purpose: to provide an exceptional experience with honesty, integrity, quality, and open communication.
We’re committed to providing quality training, coaching and instruction in an environment that is both safe and fun.
