Vale ~ Alex Taransky

Sad news amongst the shooting fraternity today on the passing of Alex Taransky. The opposite text is an exerpt of an email  from Bev Osborne, SA President.

It is with great sadness that we advise that Alex Taransky passed away quietly in his sleep last night (7/8th December 2017).  The funeral will be on Friday 15th December 2017 at Centennial Park at 11.30am.

Alex Taransky was a member of SARPA from 1691 and coached many of our State’s elite shooters to Olympic level.   Alex was the Director of the Coaching Council for 20+ years and held countless coaching sessions for all grade athletes within SARPA Affiliated Clubs.  Alex also travelled to other States to share his knowledge and further advancing our State’s and his own reputation as a supporter of the sport of pistol shooting on a national level.

His respectful and encouraging dedication to all level of skill sets and has instilled the characteristic of good sportsmanship as part of his coaching methodology and this will be his legacy left to us all.

Alex Taransky’s reputation, and the respect in which he has been held within our State and nationally, is testament to the true champion that he became and he will be sadly missed and forever remembered through our cherished memories.

Rest peacefully Coach.

Our thoughts are with his family and friends.

Welcome to my Pistol Shooting website.

Here you will find informative coaching information primarily for ISSF shooting, but can be adapted to virtually all forms of pistol shooting.

Several of these articles are covered in my book. For book sales go to the next page and fill in your order while stocks last.

Having used many of these coaching and training techniques on many shooters over the years, some have become National Champions, State Champions, State Team members and even some to compete in World Cup events overseas. Some even still hold State records they achieved whilst on my programs.

So, please enjoy these articles and hope you gain a little information from what has been written here.

If you have any questions regarding training etc, please make contact through the Book Sales page return email. Either myself or a fellow coach will help with your enquiry.
