    Scott Moore, Paraolympic Coach of the Year

    Scott Moore, Paraolympic Coach of the Year

    USA Judo is pleased to announce that Scott Moore (Englewood, Colo.) has been named the 2009 U.S. Olympic Committee Paralympic Coach of the Year. Moore was nominated for the award by USA Judo.


    Moore was the head coach of the USA Judo Team that won 17 medals at the 2009 International Blind Sports Association Pan American Games in July. In addition, Moore led the U.S. Team to six medals, including two golds, at the 2009 German Open International Championships the most prestigious international tournaments in the world for visually impaired players during a post-Paralympic year.

    Thats awesome. Im overwhelmed, Moore said when he was told the news in the Denver International Airport on his way to coach the U.S. Team at the IBSA World Championships in Anatalya, Turkey that begin tomorrow. Im quite shocked, especially since Ive been coaching internationally for such a short time, but its a great honor.

    A 2000 Paralympic Champion who also medaled at the 1996 and 2004 Games, Moore has been the head coach of the Denver Judo program since 1998, but his first international appointment was as an assistant coach at the 2008 Games.

    I worked with Scott during his athletic career and he always had an outstanding work ethic, said USA Judo Director of Athlete Performance Eddie Liddie (Colorado Springs, Colo.) We knew when we named Scott as the Head Coach last year that he would do a great job His professionalism and approach towards coaching elite athletes has paid off greatly and he has truly helped expand our judo program and help the elite athletes reach the next level.



    The awards will be presented to the recipients on Thursday, June 17, during the National Coaching Educators' Conference at the Hilton Savannah DeSoto in Savannah, Ga. The conference is a three-day event conducted jointly by the USOC, NCAA, National Federation of State High School Associations and National Association for Sport and Physical Education.

    Moore is joined as a coach of the year by National Coach Bob Bradley (Manhattan Beach, Calif.), head coach of the U.S. Mens Soccer Team; Developmental Coach John Wingfield (Indianapolis, Ind.), director and head coach of USA Diving's National Training Center; and Volunteer Coach Brian McCutcheon (Kaneohe, Hawaii), a coach of top junior taekwondo players. Heidi Thibert (Fort Collins, Colo.), a U.S. Figure Skating Sports Sciences and Medicine Committee member, was selected as the "Doc" Counsilman Science Award honoree.
