2 persons per pole

  • From the front a hat at 5 meter distance, on one side at 3 meter distance and one side at 1 meter distance. the back at about 4 meter distance.
  • Number 1 starts shooting. Number 2 takes the catch.
  • When number 1 has scored, he/she moves to the side and when he/she has scored again, we move to the other side.
  • Score 4 times in total. If you succeeded then it is number 2's turn.
  • If number 1 hasn't scored 4x after 2 minutes we change and train separately on shot technique.
  • With the weight through the knees and up again.
  • Do this 10 times and then shoot 5 times at 3 meters from the pole.
  • Then we pick up the weight again and move our arms along the body and then forward with our arm stretched.
  • Next, we move forward with stretched arm.
  • We do this also 10 times and then shoot 5 times at 5 meter.
  • Then finally we move with stretched arms to the side 10 times.
  • Then we shoot 5x at the pole at 7 meter.
  • Get in 2 teams and stand in a row opposite each other and bring the pawns together to the other side.
  • You do this by first lifting your one hand and take the pawn and put it between your 2 hands.
  • Then you lift your other hand and put the pawn next to your hand.
  • From there, the next person does exactly the same until the pawn reaches the other side.
  • In total, 8 pawns must reach the other side.
