Lesson #15 – Precision
Focus: Precision (for a warm night)
10 minutes – Discussion Points/Important Questions:
What does it mean to be precise? Accurate.
Today we are working on precision. That means making sure we are super accurate. What are some things we can do to make sure we are super accurate? Consistent position and breathing, smooth trigger pull, and perfect sight picture.
Show them a precision target as an example of what they will be shooting tonight.
15 minutes – Head Out to Range, Zero, Confirm, and Start 10 Minute Warm-up
35 minutes – Combo Practice Working on Session Focus
What to look for: Athletes taking their time to set up in a consistent position and getting everything ready before taking the shot, timing is even and obvious.
25 minutes – 1 Skill/Drill Based on Focus: 2 Precision Targets
Athletes will have 2 paper Precision targets (scored from 1-10). Goal is to have the highest score at the end. They must shoot 10 shots on a target, go for a ski to warm up for 5 minutes, and then shoot 10 shots on the second target. Coaches can collect and score the targets, or let the athletes do it themselves at the end of practice.
1 Game: Points Game
Athletes shoot 5 shots on paper. For younger athletes, every hit in the inner ring prone, they get +5 points. For every regular prone hit, they get +3 points.
Then they shoot on metal, for every miss, they subtract 5 points.
Repeat again. Athletes tally up their points to see who scored the highest.
Equipment Needed: Z/C paper + 1 target for Game, Precision Targets (2 per lane)
