Host a Class


This page will guide you through the process of hosting a shooting-performance class

How do I host a course?
Answer:  Hosting a course is easy.  Once you have decided to host a class, you will be sent a checklist tofollow.  Basically, your responsibilities are:

  1. Find a local range that would allow a host course.
  2. First, please fill out the hosting request form (for tracking and scheduling purposes): Request a Class
  3. You will be contacted by Shooting-Performance and a date will be scheduled.
  4. Your next step is to coordinate for all range logistics, including target supplies.   The MTB Checklist.pdf will guide you through your responsibilities.  Please call Mike (918-978-0736) with any questions.
  5. Help market and promote the class to your shooting buddy’s.
  6. Ensure that potential students know how to sign up for the class.
  7. Provide some administrative support for the class (only when needed).

What is the class price for a hosted course?
Answer:  All courses (in the U.S.) are $395-405 per person, and the students will also be required to pay range fees or be a member of the host range at times.  The price includes a discount code for the class manual and DVD’s if the student desires to purchase them.

What is the class minimum/maximum size?
Answer:  I will travel to your location for a minimum of 12 paying students (in some rare cases 8), and will allow up to 20 (some exceptions) into the class for basic classes.

How do I find a range to host the course?
Answer:  Most potential hosts are already members of a local range somewhere, but if not you can find ranges by using google or any search engine on a computer.  Ranges might also be listed in the yellow pages or phone book.  Range requirements for most Shooting-Performance courses are very simple and almost any range with an adequate and safe backstop will work.  Mike Seeklander and any supporting instructor for Shooting-Performance has a full instructor liability insurance policy, and is a federally certified instructor.  Documentation can be provided if necessary.

What are the benefits to hosting a course?
Answer: Free training! If you want to help host the course, your slot if free!

What are my duties as the course host?
Answer:  Host duties are pretty simple, as listed in MTB Checklist you will be sent when you take on the responsibility of a course host.  Here is the short list-

  1. Provide Class Description and Market/Fill The Class (it is the responsibility of the coordinator to help fill the class):  Class descriptions, as well as other information can be found on the S-P website here: Classes.
  2. Reserve/Inspect/Coordinate Training Range and Supplies:  As the class coordinator, all range and equipment arrangements will be handled by you.  This includes reserving a classroom, range, targets, and props.   The host group will provide targets and paint, but in certain cases expenses for targets and paint may be relayed to and reimbursed by Shooting-Performance if incurred.

I look forward to seeing you in class!

Until Then – Train Hard!
