About Scott

Hensley Shooting Sports is operated by Scott Hensley. We provide instruction across all clay disciplines to shooters with a variety of skill levels. All shooters, beginners to advanced, learn the basic fundamentals that are the building blocks to a successful shot. Instruction is available for Sporting Clays, Skeet, and Trap as well as wingshooting. If you are a hunter and are looking to get some practice and instruction before your next season opens, contact us and we can discuss your shooting needs.

Scott has experience communicating to all age levels.  He was a football coach at Wildwood High School for two years following graduation and worked as a management assistant in The Villages, FL during his summers home from school.  He is a captain for the Jacksonville University Shooting team which has earned the honor of Divisional National Champion each of the last three years. 

Scott studied under Daniel Schindler at Paragon School of Sporting.  He has also been mentored by David Dobson (NSCA & NSSA Master Instructor) for three years.  His knowledge of all disciplines and his drive to see everyone succeed makes him an effective and fun instructor to learn from.

 Scott's Story:

I grew up as an athlete playing football, baseball, and basketball.  I have a loving set of parents who supported my younger brother (Sean) and I in everything that we did.  This included traveling around the state nearly every weekend for a tournament.  Sports were a huge part of my family and it was something that we all loved.  Most weekends you could find my Dad coaching and my Mom working the sidelines with water, towels, and a huge smile.  As I grew older I found a particular love for football.  I aspired to play Division I football and began working towards that goal.  Even though football was my love, I continued playing basketball and baseball throughout high school.  I graduated from Wildwood High School with the honor of Summa Cum Laude (4.2 GPA) and signed to play football for Jacksonville University. 

In my off season I found myself preparing for college and coaching my brother.  At JU I was part of the 2010 Pioneer League Championship team.  During that season I found that my love for playing football had shifted to coaching.  I had also found a new love and it was shooting.  As a result of this I stepped away from football to coach at my alma mater and pursue shooting.  I found that coaching was my real passion and that I wanted to be able to coach shooters. 

I saw the potential of shooting sports and the growing number of youth shooters.  I felt as though I could help make a difference in the lives of these young shooters.  I have a passion for teaching the youth and want to pass along as much information from my experiences as I can.  I want to help young shooters develop not only as a shooter but as an individual. 

As graduate student at Jacksonville University, I understand what is needed to not only get into college but to be successful.  I had many questions that I had to seek the answers to and I want to be able to help the young men and women of the shooting sports through this process.
