Winter Coaching 2018 - Rifle and Pistol

New this year - Pistol Coaching!

The club coaches will be running training sessions on the first Saturday of each month from Oct - Mar for both rifle and pistol disciplines. These sessions are open to all: Members, non-members, beginners, expert (we've even had the County Sec. up on the pool table!).

Content of the sessions is entirely down to indivdual needs. Typically we can review individual setup, fit adjustable butt plates, review overall process using the Scatt system.

Sessions will start after the normal morning shooting has finished and will run from  about 1pm - 4pm.

Session Dates are:

  • 1st Dec 2018

Session cost is £10 per head for non-members, free to members. Anyone interested in attending one or all of these sessions should contact Mike Kettle.

Outdoor Training Session

Never shot outside? Unsure about the longer distances?

Following the success of last years event the club coaches will be running an outdoor (50m & 100yd) training session on Saturday 23 Mar 2019 (2 weeks before our open shoot). The session will start at about 1pm.

These session are open to all (Members and non-members) and will primarily be for shooters who are new to outdoor shooting - either complete novice or less experienced shooter, and will be a group session rather than individual coaching.

More experienced shooters will of course be welcome to use the session as a refresher.

Cost will be £10 per person. If you subsequently enter the open shoot you will qualify for a £5 discount on the entry fee.
Cost includes targets and backers. You will need to provide your own ammunition.

The session will be in the afternoon and start after morning shooting has finished at about 1pm. Tea and coffee will be available but you will need to bring your own lunch. The sessions will last for about 3 hours.

If you use a club rifle you will need a letter from your club FAC holder authorising you to carry the rifle to and from the event; We can provide a template letter for this if necessary. If you have a problem transporting a club rifle we can probably fit you up with one of ours for the occasion.

If you or any members of your club are interested, please email Mike Kettle so we have an idea of numbers attending.
