Ed Solomons – Clay Shooting Coach

2014 FITASC Sporting World Champion

Around 18 months into shooting I decided to look into lessons, I already knew Ed from the shooting circuit and he came highly recommended so we organised a lesson. Ed is extremely professional during lessons yet completely approachable and friendly. His coaching has helped endlessly with my progression and confidence. Ed has helped me with everything from pre shot routine to feet positioning. The help that I’ve received from Ed has no doubt helped me achieve the things I have so far and I know that with continued support there will be many more successes to come.

I had been shooting around 18 months when I decided to get in contact with Ed about coaching.  We arranged to meet at a shoot convenient for both of us, at no cost, so he could look over my shooting and take things from there. Instantly Ed spotted an error and suggested a couple of things that would make me more consistent on certain targets. I went away and practiced what we had spoke about with great success, so I decided to book some coaching with him. All I can say is Ed is absolutely first class! He recognised my strengths and weaknesses and worked with them, tuning my own style, rather than try to change the way I shoot.   My consistency has also improved, I’ve shot my first 90+ in competition (92) and several 90’s in practice. I know if I have a problem, he is on the end of the phone, or Facebook to answer any questions or give me some specific pointers. Although Ed is more than 3 hours from me, it’s not a problem in the slightest…over the last six months, we have met up at grounds all over the place, even my own local ground for some coaching. I would not go to anyone else. Thanks Ed. Wayne Martin

A-Class Shooter

Having been shooting for four years I made the choice to move my shooting from local shoots to CPSA registered shoots with a view to improving my score average and Class position. I asked around and having tried a few local coaches Ed was highly recommended to me. I contacted Ed initially by email, I was dealt with very professionally and having arranged a meeting, Ed analysed my shooting during a casual uncoached round at Kibworth. We discussed what I wanted to achieve  and where I wanted to be with my shooting. From the outset Ed made his coaching easy to understand and most importantly easy to remember and replicate at Registered shoots. My scores started to increase and my consistency improved with my lessons from Ed and I soon achieved my first placing with a third in C Class. In 2014 I moved up to B Class and under Ed’s continued coaching I have shot personal bests in all my chosen disciplines.  This season I have achieved the following:

  • Northamptonshire County Sportrap Champion
  • Second in B class at the Clay Shooting Classic
  • Silver Category Quarter Finalist at the White Gold Challenge
  • Fifth in B-class at the British Open Sportrap
  • Seventh in B-class at the British Open English Sporting

I continue to work with Ed regularly and highly recommend him to all shooters. Jeremy Baker

B-Class and rising!
