Shooting Sports Coach Directory: Pistol, Rifle & Shotgun

Welcome to the directory of shooting coaches for all shooting sports.

Find your shooting sports coach in the list below. Use the search box to find the best match to your need.

I have not vetted these coaches, you should talk with them and make sure that they are who they say they are, that they are prepared to be coaches, that they have the qualifications they claim, and that they are a good fit for you.

If you are a pistol coach, add yourself here.

When I started shooting and wanting to really improve it drove me mad that I could not find a coach easily, neither in my city, nor my country, nor to work remotely. The Shooting Coaches Directory is the result of this frustration that I know is shared by a lot of shooters. I hope it will make it easier for shooters to find the right coach, that they will improve themselves more and faster, that more coaches will be able to make a living, and that more people will become coaches. We all raise the level of our sport together.
