Brig.-Gen. Oladeji Adeoye (rtd), President, Nigeria Shooting Federation (NSF) says the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) Grade D Coaching Course will begin in Abuja from Jan. 21-26.
Adeoye told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja on Tuesday that the global event was the first to be hosted by the federation since its establishment in 1986.
He urged the nation’s coaches to register for the course so as to become ISSF certified coaches instead going abroad to acquire the certificate.
“I am very happy to see our board’s efforts yielding significant fruits since it was inaugurated on July 21, 2017.
“Applicants for ISSF Grade D coaching certificate in pistol and riffle from around the world will participate in the course.
“We assure participants of wonderful time because of the Federal Ministry of Youths and Sports Development’s support for the event,” he said.
Adeoye called on corporate organizations and philanthropists to support the federation in its bid to make the nation the hub of shooting sport in Africa.
NAN reports that ISSF Grade A tutors and ex-world shooting champions will serve as resource persons during the course. (NAN)
