Welcome to my website. Coaching today has very little in common with the shooting instruction I first encountered in the shooting sports industry over thirty years ago, yesterday’s instruction has become today’s coaching science. We still need to install the basics of shotgun marksmanship, and I will always be indebted to those who taught me those skills like the late Chris Craddock and the other instructors from the famous shooting schools. Most professional coaches today will be registered with one of the UK sports organisations. They will be on a continual professional development programme, learning best practice in improving coaching techniques, and modern coaching technology. This development in coaching means that performance coaching is now available to everyone and not just reserved for elite athletes. My Game and Sporting Clay clients are now benefiting from performance coaching such as vision management, which was passed on to me by my ISSF tutor Jeff McCready (Performance2Win), and used on his athletes at the last Olympic Games.
Gun-fit is, and will always remain paramount to consistent and high performance, and the principles are the same for any form of shotgun sport. The gun must shoot where we are looking, and the perfect fit is required for a good clean, uncomplicated, and consistent gun mount. I was fortunate to be taught my gun-fitting skills by the very best British and European Gunmakers, and work with craftsmen that can undertake the most precise measurements and alterations on gunstocks.
Presentations on coaching and or gunfitting are available to clubs and groups. Please contact me for details.
