Joe Tuel, from Lehigh, IA, has been an avid outdoorsman his entire life. From growing up fishing, bow and gun hunting, to now coaching the Men’s and Women’s Sports Shooting team at Iowa Central, he is very well rounded with all outdoors sports. Joe’s passion is getting more individuals involved with shooting sports as well as coaching safety, consistency, and accuracy. Shooting is a sport that everyone can enjoy for their entire lives with no limitations.
Joe began coaching the Tritons Sports Shooting team during April of 2016 and witnessed the team win the Conference Championship, right after they were National Runner Up in Texas. Joe was also instrumental in the team’s success during 2017-2018 when they were crowned National Champions in American Trap, American Skeet, and Sporting Clays, as well as ICCAC/SCTP Conference Champions. He is a member of the SCTP, Pheasants Forever, and ACUI. Joe is constantly working on growing the program at Iowa Central with an ultimate goal of helping the shooters be more well-rounded in all shooting sports and ideally, transferring to a University on a shooting scholarship.
