This course book covers the basics of shooting technique for the Olympic clay target events. The course will cover the basic ready position for all three shotgun disciplines, how the shooter controls the movement of the gun to the target and finally the triggering of the shot.
The three disciplines are discussed concurrently, where they share common ground in the technique. Where they differ they are discussed separately.
We will also examine the basic problems that are encountered during these phases and how we might go about correcting them.
This is a standardised course, it does not favour one particular shooting style over another but it does try to provide a rational and logical method to teach students. As a foundation for coaching it provides a platform from which a beginner or a newcomer to the Olympic disciplines can start, under the proper guidance of a coach.
