Class Size: Please note that each class size will be restricted to the first 16 participants registered. We will allow 4 additional people to register (for a total of 20) however, they will serve as subs only and if class participation is full, they are welcome to view and listen. Each person who registers is making the commitment to attend all of the scheduled lessons in the three week series. If you are unable to attend, please do not register, as you are taking the place of someone who does wish to attend. All participants should meet under the large canopy in the gathering space, 10 minutes before the scheduled lesson time.
Skill Level Restrictions: Effective 2/1/18 all participants registering for this lesson series will be required to have a USAPA or Club rating of 3.0 or 3.5. So if you do not have a skill level rating please see Skill Level Rating Program. Until 2/1/18 if you are not rated you need to review the Rating Skill Level descriptions for 3.0 – 3.5 level on the club website to determine if you meet the criteria to participate. These lessons have skill level requirements and you must be a member of the club to participate.
Lesson Participation: Once you have completed a series of 3 lessons, we ask that you do not
repeat the lessons or sign up for a new level of lessons, until you have had a chance to practice what you have learned. In other words, please do not sign up for another set of lessons until at least one full month or lessons series has gone by and a new series of lessons may become available. This will allow more people to participate and also give you the opportunity to practice and put these new skills into practice during drop-in, round robins, ladders, etc.
Please Thank Our Sponsor & Volunteers! We are very fortunate to have Drew McKaig of Fullerton Financial Planning to sponsor our Club & the PickleSkills Plus program. With his assistance we have been able to fund different practice aids including our State of the Art Pickleball Ball Machine and the Practice Back Board. He provides services in the following areas to many of our members and SCW residents: financial planning, Social Security planning, long-term care needs, etc. If you are in need, please contact Drew. And without all of our volunteers this would not be possible. Thanks!
