USA Shooting has announced that Don Stith is the new full-time Paralympic Manager. He will oversee the management, training and programming of the U.S. Paralympic Shooting Team.

The announcement of Stith taking the job comes a few months before the scheduled Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games taking place in August 2021.

Stith’s involvement with USA Shooting spans from his experience as a parent supporting his daughter on the National Rifle Team, coaching at the junior-club level and volunteering with Paralympic Team at the Olympic and Paralympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo. He moved his family to Colorado in 2015 and his daughter Emily began training with the National Training Center Shooting Club (NTCSC).

“Emily started shooting really well out here.” said Stith. “During our time in Colorado, I met Roger Withrow who got me started volunteering and helping with the para team. I ended up attending the Warrior Games in 2015 where I met West Point Coach, Web Wright. From there, I started volunteering and loading for McKenna Dahl, Jazmine Almile-Ryan, and many other athletes. I met the entire team that year, and well, everything just clicked.”

Stith enjoys off-roading, building jeeps, side-by-sides, and is extremely proud of his family and what his children have accomplished. He has three daughters, one son, a grandchild, and another grandchild on the way.

“I’m looking forward to the Paralympic camp coming up in June and the World Cup in Lima. From there, our sights will be set on Tokyo in August,” added Stith.
