What is this?

The coach school is the heart of the program. The instructors use up-to-date materials and PowerPoint presentations to present coaching methodology and a variety of leaning activities for all participants.

The registration fee includes a copy of the Smallbore/Air Rifle coach school student study guide, rulebooks and other materials to help you with the details of running a successful program. After attending the school and reading the student material, participants complete a open-book test as homework during the first evening of the course. The test is graded in class, reviewed for understanding, and then submitted to the NRA Coach Trainer by the instructor for credential processing. Upon successful completion of the coach school you will be a Coach (Level 1) in Smallbore/Air Rifle discipline. A Coach Credential Card is sent to the student.
