What is Beginner Archery?



Beginner Lessons are for students that have never taken an archery lesson at AJ Archery or have had very little training in archery. Coach AJ will determine if a student should be in this level during the Initial Consultation and Evaluation.

During Beginner Lessons, students will learn stretching, hydration, some conditioning, mental management and archery shooting form along with equipment. Students will begin shooting fewer arrows into a blank bale and a 10-ring target in their lessons. They will progress to shooting an increasing amount of arrows into more complicated targets. Distance to target will begin with either 20' or 30' progressing to 50'. Evaluations of students will be continual with attention to increasing archery equipment knowledge, shooting form and aiming skills using different targets along with use of mental management with limited distraction training using music.
