The art of teaching is a calling to help people become the best versions of themselves. The question is, how do we become the best coaches possible?
Coaching requires a multi-discipline approach applying diagnostic skills, cognitive interviewing, understanding the decisional process, predictive analysis, and adapting to the clients' unique needs.

Deliberate Coaching will cover physiological, psychological, and technical aspects of client development. Identifying and understanding the shooters learning style and more importantly, their blind spots. Predictive analysis through posture, speech, body language, and goal setting. Adaptive drill development with measurable results. Curriculum development through deliberate practice and focused methodologies. Understanding of biology under stress and how to enhance performance.

You WILL have the opportunity earn the TOP COACH AWARD and to measure, refine and perform the 4 scored drills and earn Ant Rank patches.
You have the passion for teaching, now develop the mastery on how to best help your clients.
