    What are the hours during the week?
    Is there someone who could show me how to improve my archery skills?

      The ranges are open from sun-up to sun-down.

      We ask that you pay $2 when you arrive at the range.

      As for training, everyone is either a visitor (like you) a Staff volunteer.
      So as you visit the range you will likely run into quite a few helpful souls who may be able to give you guidance.

      Otherwise, there are a number of Archery training operations in San Diego, in case you are looking for more formal instruction. See https://sandiegoarchers.com/sda-questions-answers?view=thread&id=14
