Wednesday evenings are set aside for special training lessons only for Training Members. These will focus on specific competition skills, workouts, mental training, and other advanced work. You will get a secret access code to sign up for these lessons. Use your member code and the cost is free.
Advanced Open Shooting
After learning how to properly set up and take down equipment, Training Members may use equipment, if it's available, and shoot at the range any time it's open. This benefit allows you to shoot further distances than typical open shooting but you may only shoot as far as you have safely been shooting during training.

The cost of your Training Membership will never increase all long as there isn't a lapse in your membership. (USA Archery membership costs may change) You may change from annual to semi-annual enrollment, or from semi-annual to annual, as long as you keep your membership current, you will always be able to renew at the rate you started at. (If your membership lapses you can re-enroll at the then current rate and be locked in at that new rate)
