Location:         East Elgin Sportsmen’s Association – Clubhouse, Classroom

The Program:
The goal of the clinic is to provide basic training to EESA volunteer coaches in the set up of new shooters in prone, kneeling and standing positions and to be better able to assist existing shooters to improve their skills. We will also spend a few minutes talking about vision and eye dominance as it pertains to new shooters and have an open discussion with the group on tricks and techniques that can work with individual shooters.
Who should attend:
The course is for individuals who will be helping as volunteers in the range with new shooters and helping existing shooters improve their skills. Current and past volunteers are welcome as well any parent who wishes to help on the range. Any of our advanced juniors who feel they’d like to get some training so that they can volunteer as coaches are welcome. Previous coaching experience is not required. The objective is to get the participants started in coaching and get to know one another so that we can all learn together on the range.
The course will be conducted by NCCP certified coach course instructors and participants will learn about the National Coach Certification Program and how to become certified as coaches under the program if they wish.
EESA’s Board is kindly supplying the classroom for the evening and the instructors will be there as volunteers so there will be no cost to the participants.
The plan is that you will be setting one another up in position so come dressed comfortably and be prepared to get down on the mat and on the floor working on positions.
The class size is limited to 16 to keep the group a workable size. Should the numbers exceed this we may need to run a second clinic.  Please provide your name, email address and contact number to Richard and/or Elaine as listed below.
