This comprehensive program offers courses, resources, and professional development opportunities for individuals who not only love playing pickleball, but who want to help others enter the sport and learn how to play or how to play better......
**Instructor 1 - May 31 webinar & June 7 in-person: Introducing Pickleball is the first step along the coach education pathway. This 1-day course is focused on preparing instructors so that they can ensure that a new player’s first experience with pickleball is safe, inclusive, and incredibly fun. Participants will learn to manage groups, organize play, and focus on key fundamentals so that new players are set up for success and go home sharing a passion for pickleball.
**Instructor 2 - June 8 & 9: Developing Recreational Players is focused on supporting instructors who can help existing pickleball players to play the game better. With an increased focus on intermediate tactics and technique, this course takes place over two-days and prepares instructors to develop in their players a wide range of key skills that they will need as they advance.
