BASC Accredited Shotgun Coach of the Year
2019 sees our 3rd year of The BASC Shotgun Coach of the Year award. Congratulations to Mark Baxter who won last year in the ‘Newcomer’ category, particularly for his work in the Northern region, well done Mark!
To continue on from the success of the last two years, BASC are pleased to announce that nominations are now being sought for our 2019 winner.
The award was created to recognise the great work of the BASC Accredited Shotgun Coaches and the winning coach will be presented with a perpetual shield during a ceremony at The Midland Game Fair in September.
Nominations for the award can be made by BASC members, BASC staff and BASC Accredited Shotgun Coaches.
Coaches can be nominated for any of the following reasons:
- Special contribution
- Development of a shooter (young shot)
- Volunteering services
- Long standing service
- Best newcomer
A panel will judge the winner who will then be invited to attend the presentation at Weston Park, Shropshire TF11 8LE on 14 & 15 September 2019.
Closing date for nominations is 31 July 2019
2018 BASC Shotgun Coach of the Year
Mark qualified just under a year ago and has very quickly become a regular, coaching at many Young Shots events, Ladies Days and coaching lines, having currently undertaken 12 events for his region, travelling all over this region to do so. His background in game shooting and loading provides great credibility particularly on game oriented events. He is a pleasure to work with, always willing to help and offer advice.
2017 BASC Shotgun Coach of the Year
Kelvin was nominated for his long service, invaluable advice, experience and excellent problem solving abilities. He has been volunteering as a BASC shotgun coach for 25 years and continually supports the ‘Help for Heroes’ project.
