Hitting Targets offers

Coaching from qualified and experienced coaches

Whether you are a beginner who simply wants to get a head start in the sport or an established shooter who wants to hit a few more targets or you want to improve your technique or even improve the mental side of your game; then give private coaching with Suzy Balogh and her staff a shot.

The sessions can be 1 on 1 or up to a group of 18 shooters. Video analysis is used for each coaching session to enhance the feedback to each participant.

The session starts with a look at what you wish to achieve, an assessment is carried out on where you are at, an equipment review is conducted and finally an analysis of your technical skills. Once this is complete, the coaching begins to move you forward. Each client receives written notes of the session – what was appraised, what changes were made and what needs to be worked on by the individual from here.
