Contracts and Challenges Technique for Pistol Shooting Coordination

All the pistol coaches I’ve worked with use challenges and contracts in their training plans, usually adding more demand as competitions approach. After my first training session with Philippe Stiel he sent me a great email explaining contracts, so as to change my training plan and to improve coordination in training and competition. So far I’ve also worked with challenges and contracts with coaches Daniel Goberville, Santiago Gómez Salgado and Dina Aspandiyarova. This is my interpretation of their take on the use of challenges and contracts, with examples.

Dina Aspandiyarova: “Each shooter must have goals”

Goals… Each shooter must have goals. Then it is easy to stay motivated.
