Our Instructors

ETOWAH VALLEY SPORTING CLAYS offers several options for you to "Learn To Shoot"!

          Group Lessons

Once a month we offer a "Learn to Shoot Clinic".  Watch for dates to be announce on the Home Page of the website.  This is a class room style course with multiple participants.  It is a great way to get a sampling of what the sport is all about.

Special Occasions - like birthday parties, batchelor parties or family gaitherings can be arranged to include group instructions.

Private Lessons

Our number one goal is safety first.  We recommend you take advantage of booking a class with one of our NSCA Licensed Instructors to start off with all the right skills.  Our instructors can take you from never holding a shotgun to breaking sporting clays targets in a very short time. 

If you want to take it to the next level, our instructors are skilled in this level too.  With private shooting instructions, you get an hour of focus on your particular requirements. 

Our NSCA Licensed Instructors are knowledgeable and skilled in what it takes to help you get to the skill  level you desire so you can enjoy your experience in shooting sporting clays. 

         Youth Program

The MAMBA's is our youth team.  Each shooter is evaluated and coached to enhance their talent. For more information on this program check out the Mamba's website.

Reservations are required to book the instructors for private or group sessions.  You may reach them on their direct number to set your reservation. 

Learning the right way first will make for an enjoyable lifetime of shooting.
