WHO ARE THE ATA COACHES?
Click here for your complete list of ATA Credentialed Coaches
ATA SHOOTING COACHES come from one of two avenues:
(1) Successful completion of the NRA/ATA Trap Coach School, or
(2) Successful completion of the NRA/USAS Shotgun Coach School. Graduates of the NRA/USAS Shotgun Coach School must register with ATA by signing a form that they have in their possession and have read the “Trap Fundamentals” section of the Coach School curriculum, by giving their NRA/USAS credential expiration date, by paying $10 for three year’s credentialing, and by being members of ATA. NRA conducted mailings December through January to all 600+ NRA/USAS Shotgun Coaches which included the “Trap Fundamentals” section and the form to request to become an ATA Shooting Coach. If you did not receive this mailing and believe you should have, please contact: ATA Coaching, email@example.com, for assistance.
