2015 USA Shooting Biennial Coach Conference

Date: August 28, 2015 - August 30, 2015
Location: MSU Demmer Center


Coach Conference 28-30 August

In past years attendance at the Biennial Coach Conference has been around 80-90 attendees. For many others this event is too expensive to travel to. Both time off from jobs /families and $cost. USAS wants all coaches that are interested to have access to the information presented at these Biennial Coach Conferences.

This year we will pilot the live coach conference broadcast to host sites around the country.  The MSU Demmer Center will be a broadcast site for the conference.  This will allow coaches the choice of traveling to a closer broadcast site that maybe in commuting distance which will reduce travel time and cost. We will still offer an opportunity to attend the live conference here at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. Registration fee is $170.  If you like to register for the broadcast site at the Demmer Center, please register below and select the MSU Demmer Center in the drop down menu.
