Development squad news


The latest weekend outing was a productive one for the Isle of Man Development Squad, writes Michael Duncalf. Although numbers were low those attending were able to work on specific areas they needed help with. The weekend was broken up into some indoor shooting on the Saturday and then a match on the Sunday morning followed by some further training in the afternoon. The squad members worked on a whole host of things including some technical set-ups, specific process goals which are important in ensuring each shot is shot in the same way all thrown in with some of the fun that Coach Michelle Smith brings to the table. We are extremely lucky to have someone of Michelle's calibre available to us on the Island and there are so many shooters on the Island who could benefit from her coaching skills, If anyone is interested in joining the squad or would like some 1to1 coaching they should get in touch with anyone at the IOMSC who can point them in the right direction.
