FITAV SUMMER CAMPS are summer centers dedicated to the practice of shooting sports aimed at youngsters aged between 12 and 25 years, for the TRAP AND SKEET disciplines, will take place at the TAV UMBRIA VERDE in Sant’Arnaldo of Massa Martana (PG).
The meeting, lasting 10 days, will be organized according to the level of preparation of the participants: Basic – Intermediate – High, indicated by each student in the registration form according to parameters established by the organization. On the first day the students will be welcomed at the center by all the staff who will welcome them with an opening ceremony in which all the members of the Fitav Summer Camps team will be presented and the “Fitav Summer Camps kit” will be given. The educational activities program is structured in 3 phases:
– Technique-tactics: training aimed at researching and developing the correct body position to be taken on the platform, improving the shooting technique and defining the correct competition tactics through exercises carried out on the field, according to the best teaching methods proposed by the ISSF coaches. Theoretical lessons on these aspects with video support and discussion of the exercises carried out in the field by each shooter and error correction;
– Athletics: training and exercises aimed at strengthening the physical response, based on the characteristics of each shooter, essential during the competition and for improving the recovery capacity at the end of each series;
– Mental: exercises to improve the ability to concentrate on the platform and manage tension during the competition to allow the student to obtain that mental attitude to keep before, during and after the performance. Suitable mental routines will be prepared on the platform to be applied to the shooting technique.
The mental approach is very important since it allows shooters to experience the competitive shooting experience in a positive way instead of suffering it due to result stress.
The Technical Director of all educational activities is Diego GASPERINI, ISSF ‘A’ level international coach and ISSF Shotgun Tutor, supported by ISSF international coaches, federal instructors, athletic trainers and a sports psychologist.
