Mentoring - Suspended due to COVID-19

Nearly all of our training and mentoring activities are suspended at present. These will be restored when the pandemic abates.  At that time, our St. Albert Pickleball Club will again offer regular mentoring sessions and occasionally provide specialized or advanced training, such as tournament readiness. 

Mentoring is intended for beginners who have previously attended the beginner's lesson or have a bit of play experience, as well as 2.0, 2.5, and 3.0 level players, as well as 3.5 players seeking to advance to the 4.0 level.

The information in the tables below will only apply when mentoring resumes.

How to spot on calendar Look for events titled "Mentoring."  Always double-check the calendar before leaving for the session in case there is a last-minute cancellation of the session.
How to register Email training@pickleballstalbert.ca. Specify "Mentoring" in the subject line and provide your full name and the date of the session you would like to attend. You will receive a reply either confirming your registration and specifying your session time or advising the event is full.

To ensure sufficient play time for attendees, there is a limit to the number that can and will be accommodated at any mentoring session. Only those with a confirmed registration will be allowed to participate. 

Attendance Non-members may attend one mentoring session, after which they are asked to join the club. Members may attend as many mentoring sessions as they would like.
Purpose and activities

For beginners: to re-enforce learning from the beginner's lesson and to help learn the rules and the basics of the game.

For all attendees: to improve your game by developing your skills and learning strategies of play.

Players are divided into skill levels and, for the first hour, practice skills suited to their level. Players then play games and obtain play-improvement tips from trainers.

Don't hesitate to let the trainers know what you would like to work on. We have great volunteers who dedicate their time to help you, and love to see players working on their skills.
