Training Clinics Start in January

Greeting Palm Creek Pickleball Club Members,

Happy New Year and Best Wishes for a Pickleball Filled Year in 2014 from the Training Group!

With that in Mind the Training Group is once again offering Skill Sessions to all of our Members, beginning this coming Friday!  These Skill Sessions will assist you in developing specific aspects of your Pickleball Game, depending on the course you sign up for the instructors will demonstrate techniques in each skill allowing you to take away what you need to practice the skill or skills until you have mastered them! 

The signup Sheets for all Skill Sessions will be located on the South Side, of the Big Blue board, near the bottom, between courts 9-16 and 17-24 and all signup sheets will be posted at least one week prior to the Skill Session running.  There is already a signup sheet posted for our first Skill Sessions at the 2.5 Skill Level, please read the Prerequisites listed for each skill session to be sure you are in the correct place to get the most benefit from the session before signing up, these begin filling up very quickly once we everyone arrives so check the Blue Board OFTEN as there will be a total of 15 different Sessions offered from this Friday, January 3rd, through to Wednesday, February 12th.  If you have something come up, please be courteous and remove your name so that someone else can benefit from the session.

There are Lessons in Dinking, Lobbing, Volleying at the net and so on, with each being offered at different times for YOUR skill level!  Our instructors are pleased to help you with your game and eager to have your feedback on all of the sessions you attend.  Please take a couple of minutes to tell us what you think on a short evaluation form available at each session.

We are always looking for folks who would enjoy helping out with the training, and there are a few spots open for positive folks who enjoy training and mentoring fellow Pickleball players into the sport we all LOVE!  So if you have skills in the area of adult training, or if you are enthusiastic and willing to learn, please respond to me and I will connect you with the appropriate Instructor or with our new “Coach”!

Thank you all and please feel free to contact me should you have any questions or concerns.

See You On The Courts!
