Anthony Matarese

Anthony Matarese

Anthony I. Matarese Jr. of Pennsville, NJ was born in 1984 and started shooting at six years old. At age 10 he started shooting competitive sporting clays and began studying the art of shooting under the guidance of Olympic Medalist Dan Carlisle. Anthony is recognized as one of the top  competitors in the world and became the youngest shooter in history to be inducted into the National Sporting Clays Hall of Fame. Anthony began his teaching career at the young age of 14 and many of his students have gone on to have great success at the national and international level. Anthony’s dedication to the game and his passion to pass on what he has learned to other shooters is evident in this teaching. He has become one of the leaders in the shooting world and his experience will make you a better shooter. Anthony teaches shooters of all experience levels from first time shooters to world-class shooters.

Diane sorantino

Diane Sorantino is arguably the most accomplished female sporting clays competitor of all time. Diane was introduced to hunting and clay target shooting by her father at the early age of 9 years old. Diane has over 40 years experience both as competitive shooter and hunter. Diane’s father was a competitive trap shooter and was instrumental in starting her off with a great foundation in shooting. In later years Diane, like Anthony, took her sporting clays game to the next level by taking lessons from and training under the guidance of Dan Carlisle. As a result, the foundation that Anthony and Diane share allows them to work together cohesively to provide a shooting method that is shared by A.I.M. Shooting School. Anthony and Diane work and shoot together to ensure that their shooting methodology always compliments each other. Diane teaches shooters of all experience levels from new shooters to Master Class shooters.
