Basic description of rules and expectations


  1. Come alone. Please do not bring spouses, children or friends with you.
  2. Cash is preferred but we are also equipped to take credit card payments. Checks are not accepted. Your information will never be shared and is securely destroyed upon completion of payment and lesson.
  3. Lessons may never be recorded. No sound or video recording devices may be used.
  4. You will be given paperwork during your lesson. We respectfully ask that you not freely share this information with others.
  5. Please be on time. If you are going to be late or cannot make it, please call.
  6. For lessons over two (2) hours, a short break will be taken mid-lesson.
  7. The above mentioned rules are in place to protect both the student and the instructor. Further explanation will be provided, upon request, prior to the first lesson.


Bring with you:

  1. Payment, if not already made, along with driver’s license if paying by credit card or check.
  2. A spiral notebook or blank paper and a pen/pencil. Part of your training is to take notes and keep record of your progress and that will start at your first lesson.
  3. Something to drink (and eat for longer lessons).
  4. Your equipment. While we have cues at our locations, it is always best to learn with your own.


What you are expected to do:

  1. Be open to the content and techniques conveyed by the instructor. All skills tie into each other and are taught in a way so as to strengthen your game.
  2. These skills will strengthen with use so practice regularly. You are essentially “re-training” your body and mind to do things that it is not used to doing. Results are rarely instantaneous.
  3. If you are unclear or having trouble with something, do not try to work it out yourself. Always call and ask. We will do everything in our power to help you.
  4. Allow a minimum of one (1) week between lessons. You will be given a lot of information so before moving forward, it needs to be properly processed and a full understanding obtained.
