Did you know that each leaf of the four leaf clover has a meaning? Hope, Faith, Love and Luck.
Our granddaughter, Samantha, has an incredible knack for finding them in our Flat Rock yard that sometimes is more clover than grass in spite of spending a small fortune on landscaping.
Fortunately, you don’t need a four leaf clover to be “lucky.”
What you need is desire, an open mind and willingness to learn...not reinvent the wheel. Successful shooters follow a system they've learned that is dependable and provides a solid foundation that allows them to shoot consistently. When you follow a proven system, no luck is needed. We know this 1st hand because we've worked with thousands of shooters for 3+ decades who follow Dan Schindler's shooting system. An yes, Dan's written the book on this...in fact he's written 3 books...and all are highly recommended!
Last Saturday, we had the privilege of working with 5 youngsters - ages 9 to 17 - from the Carolina Clays team. It was so much fun for everyone and it was especially rewarding for the parents and coaches to watch these young shooters move their game forward in a few short hours.
From the moment these youngsters arrive...it was game on! To advance their shooting, these young men used the basic fundamentals they learned from their Carolina Clays Coaches (Jeff Allen, Gene Walker, Grant Lakey and Mike Fine) and Dan Schindler's book, Take Your Best Shot (Book I) 3rd edition... required reading for all team members.
We wish you could have seen these youngsters shoot! Time and again, they called for the targets, saw their sight picture, and followed Dan's shooting system step-by-step! It was a sight to behold with broken targets raining down! Now, if a 9-year-old can take this basic information and break targets consistently, on purpose, so can you!
Dan's simple, dependable shooting process allows anyone who wants to break more targets to move their game forward. Dan's process is so simple. This is not rocket science! It's all about having fun while learning a step-by-step, dependable system that works!
From their very first lesson forward, people often ask, how is it possible to:
learn to break targets consistently.
learn to correct their own swing errors.
and implement all of this into their shooting so fast.
It's because we teach the required fundamentals! We structure our training into small steps that predictably raise the shooters game. We've been building our training system for 3+ decades using experts from various fields to refine our methods to move our clients faster!
Our students come from all walks of life...have varying skill levels...and range from 8 to 85 years of age, Many travel long distances. If you want to Rocket Launch your shooting to a higher level in a short amount of time, give Dan a call orcontact us.
