Whether you are a seasoned professional, clay or game shot, we all benefit from having a lesson from time to time. Bad habits are all too easy to pick up and the longer they remain unnoticed, the harder they are to get rid of.  This advanced tuition is ideal for these times when we plateau in our progression or simply have a bit of a dry spell. Often this can be attributed to a very slight habit that you may have picked up or minor changes in build or eyesight which will be quickly identified by our instructors and training given to rectify any problems.

We will provide you with all the necessary safety equipment that you do not bring along with you.

Minimum of 1 hour, chargeable at 1/2 hour increments thereafter.
