"I am absolutely passionate about the sport and getting all ages into the sport whether it is just for fun or to shoot competitively.  I am extremely proud of what we have achieved in the last 7 six years down at grassroots level.  Many of our students have gone on to other disciplines and training with regional squads"  If you haven't quite found that activity you or your child really enjoys why not give it a try?"

Mal West (TSS Kent Principal)

Shooting has been a major part of Mal's life since he was introduced to it by his dad in early childhoold, and captaining his university rifle club gave him a springboard into competitive shooting and coaching.  After graduating, he became Head of Shooting at a prestigious UK International school where he coached for 15 years, bringing generations of youngsters into County, Regional and National squads.  Mal started working with TSS in 2017 and set up TSS Kent in 2018.  With NSRA, ISSF, CPSA, MoD and NRA coaching qualifications behind him and 25 years of coaching experience, his aim is to bring shooting to a wider audience and reinstate it as an accepted and welcomed part of community life in Kent.
