LOADING IN THE GAME SHOOTING FIELD
A Course for Qualified Instructors and Coaches
THE INSTITUTE OF CLAY SHOOTING INSTRUCTORS
As part of its programme for continued professional development, the ICSI has designed a one day course on the role of the loader during driven game shooting.
The course contains classroom modules on the many facets of the loader’s roles and responsibilities, covering both single gun and double gun loading.
The techniques and practices of all aspects of loading are reviewed, including etiquette in the game shooting arena.
Practical loading is undertaken, commencing with ‘dry-firing’ practice and progressing to live firing with single gun ‘stuffing’ and double gunning, using clays for simulated high pheasant shooting, together with grouse and lowland partridge targets.
The challenges of instructing whilst acting as a loader are addressed.
A comprehensive manual accompanies the course.
The cost is £150 for ICSI members and £200 for non-members. The minimum entry qualification for the course is Level 1 CPSA Instructor or equivalent.
The course dates for 2017 are: Tuesday 20th June,
Tuesday 11th July and Tuesday 18th July.
