On Sunday 20th May SWAS Clay Target Shooting Program Athletes gathered in Hamilton for a training day.
Athletes worked with SWAS coach Penny Smith on basic technique, gun mount, hold points, connection with the targets, consistency and working under pressure. Some athletes also worked on shooting 2 eyes open.
Each athlete also participated in a Phycology session with Sarah Forsythe. During this session athletes learnt how they can listen and use their mind and how to be aware of their surrounds and bring their mind back to the now. Sarah uses a holistic approach to improving performance, with a focus on the psychological, emotional, physical, and environmental factors influencing performance.
Coach Penny Smith said “Highlights were seeing the kids mix with one another, having fun doing what they love and achieving goals along the way.”
