Burris Optics is the latest sponsor to join the USA Shooting team, making the company the official 2019 optics provider for America’s shooting team.

Under a sponsorship, Burris will offer opportunities to USA Shooting team members and coaches, providing training and events with Burris branded products. Burris announced it will also serve up product auctions to further help USA Shooting with fundraising efforts.

Burris Director of Marketing Ryan Hennig said the two organizations have aligned values, believing in both innovation and education in the shooting sports.

“We have long been fans of America’s shooting team,” Hennig said in a news release. “Educating future generations about the heritage and opportunities in shooting sports is a high priority for us and we believe the USA Shooting team’s 2020 vision can accomplish this. We look forward to our partnership and what we will accomplish together.”

USA Shooting Director of Marketing and Communications Kevin Neuendorf said the Burris sponsorship will ensure athletes and coaches have access to everything they need to reach their goals.

“The USA Shooting Team and America’s top marksmen and women have a clear 2020 vision of maintaining international notoriety and educating the general public about opportunities in competitive shooting sports,” said Neuendorf. “Attaining this vision is not possible without partners like Burris Optics willing to step forward and show belief in what we are doing. We appreciate their confidence in our athletes and can’t wait to showcase the great line of products Burris has available for hunting, tactical and competitive shooting needs.”

USA Shooting is a non-profit organization chartered in 1995 by the United States Olympic Committee as the National Governing Body for the shooting sports. The organization’s mission centers on preparing American athletes to compete in the Olympics, promoting the shooting sports nationwide and governing the conduct of international shooting in the US.
