The below resources will help with with required background checks and other resources that may be required to participate as volunteer.

Allen ISD Volunteer Background Check

Below is a link to the Allen ISD web page where you can find information about registering to be an Allen ISD Volunteer.  This is required by the school district if you are planning to be a "Parent Volunteer" or a "Coach" on the team.   It takes a village to run this team, so it is highly recommended you complete this process.


SSSF Background Check

Coaches and parent volunteers will need to complete the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation (SSSF) background check. The password for the site is "scholastic"


Food Handlers Permit

In order to volunteer for one of our biggest fund raisers (Allen Football Game Concession Stand), you will need to obtain a food handlers permit.  There are a couple of options for doing that here.


SCTP Coaches Training

The Basic Shotgun Coach Certification Program is designed for prospective coaches wishing to start or join a youth clay target or action shooting sports team as a coach or an adult volunteer. The intuitive, primarily online-based curriculum certifies coaches to work with beginning and novice athletes involved in the shotgun sports of American Trap, American Skeet, and Sporting Clays.  This two part course is two parts consisting of an online portion and a Range Day to be completed after the online is completed.

The Coach (Level 1) is the entry level for all NRA coaches and are trained to coach beginning and intermediate shooters. The Level 1 Coach candidate must be at least 18 years old and successfully complete the discipline-specific Level 1 Coach School.
