USCTA Shooting Team
The Shooting Team is designed for all Academy athletes who desire a higher level of training and a more competitive shooting environment. The Shooting Team program is designed to build upon the goals of the Academy by providing athletes a sufficiently high level of coaching and advanced training so that they will be able to (a) obtain collegiate shooting scholarships; and (b) seek to represent the United States of America in National and International competition.
Our ISSF Certified Coaches have designed a Science based training program that has been proven to accelerate an athlete’s proficiency in competitive shotgun sports, thus preparing them for the National stage in a much shorter amount of time than traditional training methods. Each athlete will be given detailed, personal preparation and competition period training plans which will include physical, mental and visual exercises, Interactive Metronome® (IM®) training along with DryFire and live fire shotgun exercises.
Athletes will train and compete in multiple disciplines on state, regional and National levels and in international competitions when time and funding permit. Selection is not age based and will be made through athlete assessments based on proficiency and dedication at the Academy Team level.
Shooting Team athletes are prepared to commit to training three times a week, on Saturdays from 8:00 AM until 12:00 PM and Tuesday and Thursday nights from 5:45 PM until 8:15 PM.
