SPORTING CLAYS INSTRUCTION

SPORTING CLAYS INSTRUCTION - $150.00 + Tax

Understandably, most folks who come into Sporting Clays rely on their "natural instincts" to break targets. History has proven, shooting instinctively typically takes a shooter to 50% and maybe  60% success ratios. This is just fine, until our Sporting Clays shooter decides to seek the next skill level. Here,  with instruction, is where the swing inconsistencies must be identified and replaced with the  basics, the fundamentals of good shooting. Only when the swing becomes more consistent can we expect the Sporting Clays performances to become consistent and scores improve.

In a safe, educational, reassuring environment, our certified staff patiently teaches the Sporting Clays basics. This is the foundation, the necessary structure that creates consistency and moves students ahead. This structure allows you to correct your own mistakes and repeat the successful shot. Once understood, a student can advance with confidence. Paragon methods are not complicated and are 100% reliable. That’s our promise to our students - and we keep that promise.
