    Pickleball 201 Clinic

    with John Wozencraft, IPTPA Certified Instructor

    Five 1.5 hour sessions.  This series is for solid beginners who have been playing for a while, are comfortable with the game and competition, and want to break through to intermediate. 

    BV Sessions:

    Friday, June 10, 17, 24, July 1, and 8 from 11:00 - 12:30

    Salida Sessions:

    Friday, June 10, 17, 24, July 1 and 8 from 5:30 - 7:00 p.m.

    We cover all the basic techniques and shots of pickleball, along with basic strategy.  There is a common tendency in recreational pickleball to always try to it a winner, going for the kill even when it's not the smartest shot, and causing a lot of unforced errors.  This series of clinics creates a solid foundation for smart pickleball, learning when to attach, when to reset, and how to make it work.  This series is usually very helpful for any beginner or low intermediate player, especially if you've come from tennis or racquetball and will benefit from honing hyour skils towards pickleball.

    Session #1: Lift Dink (reset, good arc, drop close to net)

    Session #2: Push Dink (offensive, creating pressure, flatter, crosscourt, last 12 " of kitchen)

    Session #3: Drop (long lift dinks, moving in)

    Session #4: Drive & Volley (groundstroke drive, serve, and punch volley)

    Session #5: Strategy

    Suggested donation:   $20 per person per session.  You don't have to sign up for the whole series. . .attending individual sessions is fine.  Minimum 4, maximum 8 people per session.

    "A great pickleball game comes from consistent shots, proper shot selection, good teamwork, and a lot of patience!  The longer the point lasts, and the more strategy you develop, the more fun it gets!  This is my basic curriculum, and I always customize lessons and programs to fit your needs".

    Pickleball 301 Clinics

    by John Wozencraft, IPTPA Certified Instructor

    Five 1.5 hour sessions.  This series is an intermediate boot camp with more advanced drilling and footwork exercises, playing smarter rather than harder. 

    Salida Centennial Park Courts

    Friday June 10, 17, 24, July 1, and 8 from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m.

    BV River Park Courts

    Thursday June 9, 16, 23, 30, and July 7  from 6:00 - 7:30 p.m.

    It really helps to have learned the ideas and techniques from the 201 series, and now you're pushing yourself to both strong and strategic competitive play.  We cover a lot of footwork to support your strokes, and more advanced shots to create pressure on the other team, and reset the ball when you're the one under pressure.  Plan on working hard with lots of focused drilling.

    Session #1: Lift Dink Reset (using lift dinks to recover when you're under pressure)

    Session #2: NVZ Strategy (offense, defense, and court position in a dink rally)

    Session #3:  Drops & Roll Volley (moving in, keeping your opponent back)

    Session #4:  Drive & Block Volley (mid-court attack and reset)

    Session #5: Shot Selection, When to Attack

    Suggested donation:  $20 per person per session.  You don't have to sign up for the whole series. . .attending individual sessions is fine.  Minimum 4, maximum 8 people per session.
