Scott Moniot was officially announced as Concordia's head coach for shooting sports on in June 2018. The 2020-21 academic year marked his third leading the program.

Through three years, Moniot has increased both the competitive level and the roster number of the program. The 2020-21 season represented another step forward for the program, which won the Prairie Circuit Conference title and took first at the Midland Ice Out and the Hastings Invite while also placing second at the Concordia Bulldog Sporting Invitational. While finishing the season at the ACUI Collegiate Clay Target National Championships, the Bulldogs broke program records in the disciplines of skeet, trap and super sporting. Concordia placed seventh out of 12 teams in a loaded Division 2 grouping at the national championships.

As someone with a background in youth ministry, Moniot has long been passionate about positively impacting the lives of young people. Most recently, Moniot spent two years as the head coach for the shooting sports program at Simpson College, an NCAA Division III institution located in Indianola, Iowa. Originally from Michigan, Moniot made an immediate impact with the Storm to a Division IV International Trap national title at the 2017 Association of College Unions International Championships in San Antonio, Texas. At that same event, Simpson finished second in the Division IV High Over All (HOA) and team member Tom Miller won the individual Division IV B Class ACUI trap national championship.

Moniot has tutored several other standout individuals in his short time at Simpson. Maddy Bernau shot her way onto Team USA Shooting’s National Junior Team. A total of six of Moniot’s Storm shooters have qualified for the Junior Olympics. Additionally, Moniot’s student-athletes have excelled at high levels in the classroom.

Prior to joining the staff at Simpson, Moniot worked as the Scholastic Clay Target Program’s National Director of Development as an employee of the Scholastic Shooting Sports Foundation (SSSF). The SSSF is a not-for-profit organization and is a national leader in the youth shooting sports program. Their mission is to enhance the growth and personal development of student-athletes throughout the nation via shooting sports.

A Vennard College (Iowa) alum, Moniot brings many other qualifications. He has served as a coach and administrator for SCTP Junior Olympic Development Camps at the Olympic Training Center (Colorado Springs, Colo.) and as a National Coach Development Staff (NCDS) shotgun instructor and is certified as a level 3 advanced shotgun coach. He is a member of USA Shooting with more than eight years of experience in starting, developing and multiplying shooting sports programs from grade school through college.

Heavily involved in the communities in which he has lived, Moniot has spent more than 25 years combined in roles as a Christian education director, a children’s church coordinator, teacher and pastor. He has also volunteered his services as a fireman and as a little league and youth coach for various sports.

Scott and his wife Donna have three children: Stephanie, Jaci and Clay. Moniot graduated from Vennard with degrees in youth and camp ministry and theology.
