Medical, Psychological and Technical Advances
Following on from the success of our 2015 seminar, ‘The Inner World of Competitive Shooting’, we are delighted to announce the date of our next international seminar which will be held on April 1st, 2017.
This seminar will concentrate on information, techniques and technology which can be used to improve shooting performance. There will be an emphasis on self-help techniques, tested, tried and safe techniques which you, yourself, can use to increase your scores.
Topics covered during this one day conference will focus on the implementation of mindfulness, Quiet Eye technology, therapeutic approaches to eliminating unwanted thoughts, and reactions, and techniques to improve shooting technique. Metacognition and pre-performance routines will also be covered.
As before, the seminar will be available on-line as well as on-site. You can tune in through your own home computer. (RSM technicians can give advice about IT requirements to do this). the seminar will then be available to you throughout the month of April at any time.
Admission fees will be kept at 2015 prices:
£150 on site
£ 75 on line.
As in 2015, the event will be held in the centre of London at the prestigious Royal Society of Medicine. Lunch and snacks will be provided throughout the day by the excellent RSM caterers.
We look forward to seeing you there!
