To the USA Shooting Community,

From the USA Shooting Board of Directors and Staff, we wish all USA Shooting athletes, families, supporters, and partners Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, and a very Happy New Year!  We hope this holiday season brings you happiness and joy and that you share it with those who mean the most to you.

It’s been a very challenging and consequential year for USA Shooting, and we thank you for your support and confidence.  We’ve seen extraordinary achievements by many of our athletes, which included world records and podium finishes at World Championships, Pan American Games, and Parapan American Games.  We, as an organization, acknowledged the reality of the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee demand for reform that put the existence of USA Shooting at risk.  We’ve emerged from this challenge and are primed for continued international successes and a strong showing at the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games!

We are thankful for the many who played a role in our 2023 successes: our athletes across all shooting sports disciplines who stayed focused on achieving excellence, our dedicated staff and supporters who worked tirelessly, and our new board leadership for undertaking the responsibility to build a stronger and more stable organization.

We look forward to building on our successes, learning from our failures, and competing and winning at the highest levels in 2024.  Thank you all for your continued support and dedication to growing our shooting sports community!

In the Olympic Spirit!
