    I think of those two terms as having the following distinction - an instructor deals with technical elements whereas a coach covers a broader spectrum.

    To me, the term coach involves a longer-term commitment to the student than an instructor might provide, with more involvement with all the aspects of the shooter's life which will make him or her a better shooter.

    They can be "one and the same".

    But my view is an instructor/teacher would be an individual who gives lessons such as Leo, Harlan, Shafer, etc. and these lessons are generally a one or two day course.

    A coach provides ongoing input with a given shooter relating to their continued development. They will view the individual on a regular basis, always available for questions and instruction and thus need to live in the same immediate area as the student.

    Phil, I answered your question in detail on the thread above. I believe that P-master has summmed it up.

    The coach shows you how to use what the instructor taught you, inorder to win the competition. HMB

    A coach would instruct someone. An instructor would coach someone.
