The new SSSF Basic Shotgun Coach Training Program consists of a well-designed online training module that is open to anyone who wishes to learn how to be a youth shotgun coach. Depending on the individual, the online module can take anywhere from 6 to 12 hours to complete and is available 24/7/365 on all of your favorite devices.
Upon completing the online training module, a half-day “field day” training must be completed in order to complete the certification process. Field days are administered by SSSF certified Field Day trainers, who then prepare students through a comprehensive curriculum, instructing and certifying new youth shooting sports coaches throughout the nation.
The Texas Field Day trainer’s training session was conducted by SCTP Director Of Development and certified trainer, Jeff Morrison. This three-day session took place at the Ellis County Sportsman Club in Waxahachie from January 8th through the 10th. During the first two days, the weather couldn’t better! The Field Day trainer candidates learned several important lessons including how to actually break some clay targets! On the 3rd day, however, when these new trainers were scheduled to actually run a field day to certify 6 new SCTP coaches, the weather took a turn for the worst, the temperature dropped to low the 30s, snow started to fall at around 9am, and didn’t stop even when the training session was concluded at around 1pm!
