BASC Coaches

The BASC training and education team want to encourage people at all levels to develop their skills so that they can enjoy their sport across all shooting disciplines.

“I have just got back from a shoot where I had 50 clays from different stands and hit 75 per cent of them – my highest score to date by far. Because of this I would recommend anyone who is starting out – or who is unable to increase their hit rate – to go for proper coaching. Like me, I am sure you will see your scores improve. So thanks to coach Mike and thanks BASC.”
