Athlete Institute - Playing Format
When you register for Fall play at the Athlete Institute, you will be asked to indicate your level of play as part of the registration process. The data has shown that there are 4 main levels of play: Beginner/Novice, Early Intermediate, Intermediate/Advanced Intermediate, and Advanced. With the rapid growth of our membership, our club now requires that a system that will enable the sessions at the Athlete Institute to run for the maximum benefit of all participants.
The format of the sessions set out below will enable participants to play at the skill level they indicated, to be able to grow, develop and demonstrate their skills, and to experience fun and a positive time.
Format of Athletic Institute Play for the F/W/S Session(s)
All members of MPC agree to play the game with the utmost respect and consideration for other players, and the rules of the game. Members further acknowledge that the goal is to provide a safe environment where all players can play the game to the best of their ability, to learn and to have fun!
● MPC will be using a court scheduling app - all participants must use the scheduler and pre-book their 3 slots each week. Details will be provided once the Board has confirmed which scheduling program will be utilized.
● If you are a Beginner/Novice player, you will be assigned to play on a designated court with players of similar skills if numbers permit. We have volunteers who will assist with skill development/learning the rules of the game/understanding the strategies, etc. Players are asked to respect and follow the instruction of these volunteers. In order to move up to an intermediate court, players will be required to demonstrate proficiency in skills based on the matrix (MPC Skills Matrix_Draft) adapted from Pickleball Canada.
NOTE: Based on registration to date, it will be necessary to assign specific days and times each week to ensure sufficient numbers for designated courts for specific levels/activities (e.g.; beginner/novice, league play, round robin). Beginner/Novice players will have 2 of their 3 days predetermined each week.
● Similarly, players who are Intermediate/Advanced Intermediate will need to be able to demonstrate advanced level skills in order to play at the Advanced level.
● The format of play on each court will typically be Round Robin, Open Play or variations of these. Games may be timed to allow sufficient court time for all.
● At the end of each game all players must come off the court. A rotation such as a ‘paddle box’ may be used in order to ensure a fair rotation of participants.
● Each session will have a volunteer Court Monitor who will oversee the courts to ensure all members respect the guidelines of play that are set out. All players are asked to comply with the Court Monitor’s direction.
If you are unwilling to abide by the format outlined in this document for play at AI (Oct/23 – Dec/23) please do not register.
If you have registered, you may withdraw by contacting MonoPickleballClub@gmail.com before September 8th.
NOTE: MPC has begun scheduling clinics with a qualified NCCP instructor for Novice/Early Intermediates to support player development. Please contact Clinics.MPC@gmail.com if you would be interested in participating.
