"We're undefeated in regular season competition, two years running," said David Dobson, MBA, JU adjunct professor and head coach and founder of the JU Shooting Club. "This is a big deal for JU, and I hope to get it fully funded and approved as a varsity concept for JU as it will help with recruitment and retention for the University. Students love it, and the clay shooting sports are the fastest-growing, recreational sport in the country today, and that goes for colleges and universities, as there are more than 200 universities who have Shooting Teams or Clubs."
A professional Wingshooting/Clays instructor and local Ponte Vedra executive, Dobson holds Level III certifications from both the National Skeet Shooting Association and the National Sporting Clays Association. He is only one of two instructors in the country to hold both levels of certification. Dobson, who is also the head coach for the Shooting Club at University of North Florida (UNF), proposed the club to JU in April of 2009. With the help of Dr. Priscilla Berry, assistant professor of business communications, the Club started in the fall of that year with the aid of a National Shooting Sports Foundation (NSSF, grant written by Dobson.
This year, David Dobson said, two more teams will be making the trip to San Antonio, Jacksonville University and the University of North Florida.
Dobson was the impetus of the fledgling shooting sports program at JU.
Dobson is a professional clays instructor, holding Level III certifications from both the National Skeet Shooting Association and the National Clays Shooting Association. He's one of the few instructors nationally to hold both certifications. He's also a serious competitor with a long list of wins and titles.
Coates was a shooter and knew Dobson, his teaching skills - and his plans for JU.
"They all bend over backwards for the kids," Dobson said.
But Dobson said that is ultimately where he wants to take the JU team. UNF could evolve in that direction as well but currently has no plans.
Dobson has stalked grant money and garnered $5,000 grants for both teams this year from the National Shooting Sports Foundation.
Dobson said that most of the club members had never held a shotgun before, "but they're so eager."
"With the anti-gun culture in the country today and the ignorance that fuels it, it's good to see kids who'd never shoot seeing firsthand the reality vs. the myth," Dobson said.
Dobson said that, in addition to developing shooters, the classes are building citizens.
"The shooting sports started as a gentleman's game. This is not Bubba sports," Dobson said.
Congratulations to David Dobson for initiating, Introduction To Wingshooting Theory (PE 199-03) class at Jacksonville University. David is now an Adjunct Professor at the University and our new Faculty Advisor.

Jacksonville University began a sporting clays, skeet and trap club program thanks to the work of master-level instructor David Dobson, who will join the JU faculty this fall to teach a class on the theory of wingshooting and continue as the program's head coach. Dobson's work at Jacksonville inspired one of his shooting students to launch a clays shooting club at the University of North Florida, a team Dobson also coaches. Said Dobson, "NSSF's grant program has energized both coaches and student participants to promote collegiate target shooting.
