A shooter consults his Athlete's Journal to make adjustment when switching to the kneeling position

Port Clinton, Ohio - The final training courses at the NRA National Junior Air Gun Championship concluded this afternoon with new seminars offered for competitors, coaches, and parents. 

On today's training agenda were three separate seminars. Paul Davis taught the group about proper nutrition for shooting. Covering important topics such as what to eat before a match, foods that provide energy without causing jitters, and how balanced nutrition plays a major role in being a competitive athlete highlighted his presentation.

Another topic, offered by Paul Davis, focused on Athlete's Journals. Journals allow shooters to review how their preparation affected their performance. The seminar suggested recording items such as sighting adjustments during transition from different positions, range and weather conditions, exercise and nutrition habits, and much more.

Finally, Clyde Furr discussed various grants available to clubs and shooting groups through the NRA, and how these funds can be a major benefit to helping improve shooting sports programs on a local level and help competitors travel to competitions such as this one.

The last relay is on the range, meaning that we're very close to having final results. Keep checking back to see who will be our 2011 Champions!
