Due to the outbreak of COVID 19 and government guidance BASC took the decision to postpone all training courses scheduled up until the end of June 2020. With the restrictions starting to be lifted in different areas of the UK at different rates, we expect courses to start going ahead from the 9th July in England and at later dates in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. All courses will be reviewed on a daily basis and be led by government advice. I would like to thank all our future course participants for being understanding during this difficult period. If your course was postponed or is going to be postponed you will be contacted by a member of staff. The list of current courses are published on the BASC website and are open to booking subject to further government guidance.

Improve Your Game Shooting
The course is based on a similar programme run in America by the Co-operative North American Shotgun Education Program (CONSEP). The CONSEP course, which is run over a week, has shown that education and tuition of shooters can result in improved results in the field and a reduced wounding loss during shooting.
The Improve Your Game Shooting Day will cater for 20 delegates, with reduced rates for BASC members. The one-day course begins with an introductory session highlighting the issues surrounding wounding in the field and the 15 factors involved in poor shooting success. Shooters will then take part in shooting, range-judging and patterning exercises to illustrate some of the issues that lead to poor shooting.
The afternoon session will focus on exercises to help delegates improve success and ability in the field. Qualified staff and coaches will analyse delegates’ shotgun patterns and the ballistic requirements to effectively kill their quarry. They will practise a technique called sub-tending, to better judge the range of their quarry and shoot within their personal range abilities. Qualified BASC coaches also spend two or three hours with each group to improve their shooting ability on clays.
The day will end with a constructive feedback session with BASC staff and coaches who will answer any of your questions and take on board your feedback. If you are interested in taking part in one of these courses please book early to avoid disappointment.
You will need to bring your own cartridges (approx. 125). Refreshments will be available but please bring your own packed lunch as this will not be provided.
