I recently attended the 1st All Women Shooting Coaches Clinic this past September 4-7, 2014. More than 30 women from across the country--all dedicated coaches in shotgun, rifle, and/or pistol--came together at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, CO for outstanding sessions on gun fit, goal setting, psychology, nutrition, learning styles, and much more. The event was coordinated by Mike Theimer of USA Shooting, and included speakers Terri DeWitt (MidwayUSA Foundation) and Anne Mauro (Syren USA), with many additional speakers. Jamie Gray, USA's 2012 gold medalist in Rifle, also spoke and helped to moderate the sessions.
One of the outcomes of the Clinic was the desire for women coaches to connect in all our disciplines. If you are a woman coaching shotgun, rifle and/or pistol and would like to be connected in with this group, please PM me your contact information. Please include where you are located, the disciplines you coach, and your email. If you know of anyone else who may be interested please pass this request along. Also, let's use this forum to connect with one another!
Our purpose is to increase the number of women coaches within our disciplines, encourage young female shooters to learn shooting sports, and provide support and mentorships to one another. If you have any questions please contact me, and thanks in advance!
