Residential Advanced Coaching Programme…
From experience, the students who have gone on to achieve the most success from this mental training have all enrolled in our coaching programme. It is one thing to be taught the necessary skills, but it is a big step to apply these new skills successfully.
The advanced programme offers a residential package, where we start your training in the comfortable surroundings of a beautiful country house in Suffolk, The Ickworth Hotel.
On the first day we will discuss your shooting history in depth and go through an interview to examine the strengths and weaknesses of your mental game. This will help determine some of the basic foundations you need in your tailored mental game. We will then go through mapping out an ideal pre-shot routine and discuss the different components. Later in the day we will look at various brain training technologies which may support your training. For example, measuring your brainwaves and seeing you strengths (or weaknesses!) for focus or managing nerves. This information will give us insight to further tailor your pre/post shot routine structure.
After a good night’s rest we will meet at Eriswell Lodge Shooting Club the following day. On some occasions we may have exclusive use of this facility. Here we can train on Skeet, Trap and Sporting layouts. The first part of the day will be to start to implement the system and no doubt, further changes and tweaks will be required. After lunch we will then work to more competition style so you become familiar with the structure of the mental system; confident to run it on your own without being prompted.
The coaching phase begins after these initial two days of training. This is often the hardest part; implementing the system on your own. So in this phase of coaching we have regular contact where you tell me you plans for practice and competition, we device a plan and then you report back by phone or email with the results. This phase takes patience. We will no doubt uncover further issues and I am there to help keep you on track and make changes as necessary. It typically takes 1-2 months to become comfortable with this new system. So eight weeks of coaching is included in this advanced programme.
Please note that due to the popularity of this training and the individual attention it provides, date availability may be 2-3 months in advance.
