Good People Helping Good People!

Russ Arnold is a life member of the NSCA, NSSA, ATA, and USA Shooting. He has a long-standing membership with Dallas Gun Club and recently joined Greater Houston Sports Club. His professional background includes teaching and coaching for over 40 years and running the National Collegiate Clay Target program for over 10 years. He organized over 12 shotgun events annually.

Russ teaches all clay target disciplines including international style but specializes in sporting clays and FITASC. Throughout his career, Russ realized his passion is coach training and training the trainers. He is a National and Texas 4-H Shotgun Trainer, an NSCA Level 3 instructor, and is on the NRA National Coach Development Staff. One of his greatest accomplishments was becoming an NSCA certifying instructor—there are only 16 in the country. Russ has certified close to 200 coaches including National Champions and Olympians.

Russ teaches the Carlisle Academy Method of Shooting. Almost anyone can talk a shooter onto a target, but an effective coach will identify the cause of the miss and then make the necessary corrections in the shooter’s fundamentals. Although Russ spends a great deal of time with a Shotgun, he is not a professional shooter seeking ways to supplement his income. He is a professional instructor who has dedicated hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars to perfect his craft, resulting in a better coach and coach trainer.
