Coach Training

All coaches are volunteers. Anyone acting as a coach, assisting a young person with shooting instruction, is required to complete the Iowa DNR Shooting Sports Coach Certification Program or NRA Level One Shotgun Coach certification. Coaches are also required to pass a criminal background check before certification is granted. All of the training through the DNR emphasizes the safety of all involved. Liability insurance is also provided for each certified coach as part of the Iowa SCTP. The optimal coaching level is one coach for every five students. More information on coach training is available on the Iowa SCTP website.
