Marksmanship Unit to hold coach's courses


If you’re looking for NRA coaching credentials, there’s no better place to start than with the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit. The unit just let us know it will host beginning and intermediate-level coach’s course for the rifle, pistol and high-power rifle at Fort Benning this fall.
The Rifle Coach’s course will be Sept. 10-11. The Pistol Course will be Sept. 17-18 and the High-Power Rifle Coach’s course will be Oct. 1-2. Classes run from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.  daily.
Each course costs $125. Transportation, lodging and meals are on you. But the courses make you eligible for the NRA Level 1 Coach Certificate, so it’s certainly worth the time and money.
For more information contact Coach Richard Hawkins at (706) 545-7022, or email or at
