INSTRUCTOR CERTIFICATION COURSE UPDATE
We have been thrilled at the response from people who have participated in Instructor 1: Introducing Pickleball. This is the first course on the Coach Education Pathway and focuses on making sure new players have a great first experience with pickleball.

This course takes place over two days and will concentrate on developing the coaching skills needed to help people who play at the 2.5-3.5 levels become even better. There is a considerable focus on developing intermediate tactics and technique, and participants will enhance their knowledge of group management as well as analyzing players and identifying solutions to solve problems. The first pilot took place in Toronto September 12/13 and the second in Kingston September 17/18.
