Our mission is to emphasize safe shooting practices, to protect and preserve our shooting and hunting heritage, and to promote lifelong enjoyment for the shooting sports. As coaches, we are focused on promoting a positive and supportive shooting program for DHCA’s young men and women.

Our vision is to grow an appreciation for trap shooting in each of our students, to develop skills that will allow them to compete among top shooters in the nation, and for them to become examples to others based on a solid work ethic, honesty, integrity, honor, and respect.

Our hope is to foster an interest in this generation of new shooters through the power of our vision. We strive to provide opportunities for DHCA’s youth to get hands-on experience and to familiarize them with the equipment, safety, and responsibility associated with the shooting sports. We strive to live up to the legacy created by the DHCA shooting program founders and to leave a legacy that is worthy of our DHCA family and future generations. This is the profile of the DHCA Eagle Eyes.
