Before you start a team, make sure there isn’t already an existing one in your area. GO HERE to check the directory of teams.
Steps to starting your new team
- Become a Certified Coach
As a coach, you need to schedule yourself to take one of the NRA/USA/CMP Appointed Shotgun Coaches Certifications that will certify you to coach youth shooting sports. Get more details here: “How to Become a Coach.”
- Identify or Recruit your Team
In many cases, you will already have a group of kids ready to go or you may need to set up a community information and registration meeting. (This step may be accomplished while waiting to become certified.)
- Register your Team
Once you have assembled your team, you will then need to complete ALL of the steps on the “Registering Your Team” page.
