Deliberate Coaching: Diagnostic. Predictive. Adaptive. is Brian Hill’s Instructor Certification program. These 3 days will be like no other instructor program out there because Brian will be sharing over forty years of coaching and instructor development. This chosen path has given him a unique insight and experience over a broad range of training philosophies.

The art of teaching is a calling to help people become the best versions of themselves. The question is, how do we become the best coaches possible?

Coaching requires a multi-discipline approach applying diagnostic skills, cognitive interviewing, understanding the decisional process, predictive analysis, and adapting to the clients’ unique needs.

Deliberate Coaching will cover:

Physiological, psychological, and technical aspects of client development.
Identifying and understanding the shooters learning style and more importantly, their blind spots.
Predictive analysis through posture, speech, body language, and goal setting.
Adaptive drill development with measurable results. Curriculum development through deliberate practice and focused methodologies.
Understanding of biology under stress and how to enhance performance.
You WILL have to opportunity to shoot for your first Ant Rank Patch plus the opportunity shoot the drills for Ant Rank advancement. Check out TCC’s Scored Drills

You have the passion for teaching, now develop the mastery on how to best help your clients.
