The NRA is accepting nominations for its 2013 NRA Distinguished College Coach and Outstanding Service To Collegiate Shooting Sports awards
Fairfax, Virginia - Do you know someone out there who is truly making a difference in the world of collegiate shooting sports? Help them get the recognition they deserve and nominate them for an NRA award in 2013. We're looking for individuals whose outstanding contribution to the development, expansion, fund-raising and cooperation with the university administration
or local community effort will be felt for years to come.
This winter the NRA is looking to give an NRA Distinguished College Coach award and Outstanding Service To Collegiate Shooting Sports award. All collegiate coaches and instructors, whether paid or volunteer are eligible.
For 2013's NRA Distinguished College Coach, selection will be based on record of achievement
and success of team during the year, and other criteria like responsibilities. The Outstanding Service To Collegiate Shooting Sports award looks at similar criteria, but focuses on work done towards growth and development of a collegiate shooting sports program whether it be for physical education classes, recreation/leisure, club or varsity team, or a combination.
Nominations for these awards will be accepted from students, faculty, school administrators, other college coaches,
athletic directors or others who are involved with a collegiate shooting sports program. Not to rule out families or fans, additional support letters from third parties are also accepted.
You know, students, there's nothing like a nomination from a coach's own shooter to bring their accomplishments to our attention. And now that schools are breaking for winter you'll have a lot of free time on your hands to fill out the nomination form.
Don't feel like you're being rushed. There's still plenty of time for your coach to earn (or lose - but hopefully not) your vote. Completed forms must reach the NRA by February 22, 2013 and decisions are made within two weeks.
So if you think you have compelling reasons for why your nominee should be given either the NRA Distinguished College Coach or Outstanding Service To Collegiate Shooting Sports awards, print out a copy of the 2013 Coach Nomination Award application and let us know your thoughts.
