Are there times that I can practice at the Range? What is the cost?
Since all time on the range is by appointment only, you must call to schedule Open Range time.

There is no Open Range time during private coaching sessions. The Open Range cost is $10 for the hour.
Can I use my own bow and other archery equipment at the AJ Archery Range?
Yes, you may, but only after inspection by Coach AJ.

You can pay by either cash (preferred) or check. Only credit cards may be used to pay online for Date Nights, Instructor Courses or the Roberta Smith Archery Memorial.
What is the youngest age you teach?

What is an "Initial Consultation and Evaluation"?
An Initial Consultation and Evaluation happens when Coach AJ and a student meet to discuss the student's needs/wants and the options available at AJ Archery. During this time, discussion is held concerning range safety, range rules, basic equipment, as well as shooting on the line. This lasts about an hour and is required for all students, who study with Coach AJ, whether in a group lesson or privately coached. This does not apply to one-time students in Date Nights or other specialized group lessons.
Is there any specific AJ Archery apparel?
Yes, there is a limited supply of red t-shirts with the AJ Archery logo on the front. There are ladies cut t-shirts available. A new shirt is being designed for students going to competition.
