Thanks in part to Mary and Neil Whitfield who got us on the track with this one. Also it’s interesting that there are many, many different approaches to teaching Beginning pickleball players. We’ll provide a few other examples via links, but no matter what approach you are using, or even if you are using these outlines to teach yourself (with help of one or two people ‘cuz it’s necessary to do this for yourself as a small group…keeping in mind you can’t play pickleball by yourself very successfully either, LOL!), read through the materials, check out supporting links, and don’t over-talk it…just get going. For any of our training classes (excepting Strategy) and especially for Beginners the talking on the front end should be kept to an absolute minimum…five minutes tops before you have them doing something.
Here’s the course outline:
Here’s a nice summary on the Basic Rules of Pickleball, and note the source for other good information. Read this before you start teaching!Overall Site Map
