BASC Airgun Coaching
Last November BASC took the decision to suspend the BASC airgun Coaching programme. BASC felt the current qualification and course content does not best suit our airgun member’s needs at present.
A working group has been tasked to review the current award and how to develop the award in 2016 and beyond.
