David has over 20years of coaching experience and is the proprietor of Trowgreen Farm Shooting School. He regularly coaches for BASC at game fairs, young shot days, and other events. The ground has played host to young shots, improve your shooting, and coaching pre-assessment days.
“I derive a great deal of pleasure introducing people to this great sport of ours. From the novice breaking their first targets, through coaching the experienced shot on the more challenging target presentations, to identifying the problems that creep into the game and clay shooters repertoire over the years. I am always striving to improve the shooting experience whether by adding specialist clay traps or the addition of all-weather stands. It is an ongoing commitment.”
