Coaching

Most clubs within DWAA have a qualified coach, and if you are a member of that club, these should be approached first if you require help with your shooting.

If there is not one available at your club, please contact

CCO: Kay Hobbs – coachingorganiser@dwaa.org.uk who will liaise with you about your request.
