Training Log Book
Coach Tom Herrington directs the class, builds the training plans, and reviews the training logs for all Tournament Class athletes. Once a quarter the participants must meet with Coach Tom to review their goals and the progress towards the goals.
At least once a month all participants are required to shoot a Qualification Round, either indoors or outdoors. A minimum score for a White Star must be achieved to continue in the class.
After the first six months in the class, you are required to attend at least four indoor tournaments and three outdoor tournaments per year.
From the first week in April to the 2nd week in August, the Tournament Class we will be meeting outdoors. Since we are in New England and the weather is totally obnoxious, please call ahead to the shop to confirm where we are meeting and if we are meeting outdoors.
