The Unaka Shooters Team isn't possible without the help and support of the parents. We strive to practice a safe and fun environment. We expect the best out of our athletes and expect parents to allow the coaches to coach the athletes. Shooting skeet and trap is a mental game please keep this in mind and allow the coaches to encourage the athletes.
We are also always in need of parent volunteers to help with the team. Please see our volunteering section for opportunities.
Thank you for your support!
