NRA Certified Level 1 Shotgun Coach
KC Crushers Head Coach: 2018 – 2021
Assistant Coach: 2015 – 2017
I got involved with the KC Crushers in 2014 when my son joined at 11-years-old. The journey began with a visit to my in-law’s farm where a neighbor brought over a youth shotgun for him to try. Immediately, he was hooked! At first, he just wanted to come to practice and shoot. He progressed to hitting more targets and attending events. He began devoting more time and dedication to developing his skills and ultimately, found a life-long sport that he truly loves.
It is so rewarding to see the kids on the team develop and grow in shooting sports. They make lasting friendships and learn to improve their skills and work together as a team. Families spend quality time together at practices, competitions, and travel events in a sport their kids love.
