Training Opportunities

Beginner Lessons and Mentorship!

During our outdoor season we provided mentorship on Wednesday evenings.  Knowing the importance of mentorship and the value for our members, we have decided to continue mentoring into our indoor season and have set aside some play time at various venues.

COSTS:  Mentorship will be treated like any other indoor play therefore the same ‘cost’ applies – one sticker for members, two stickers if they are not yet members. 

Who is invited to attend mentorship?  Mentorship is open to those who have already participated in our free beginner lesson and who are at 2.0, 2.5 and self-rated 3.0 levels.

WHEN:  The venues and dates will be clearly marked “Mentorship” on the calendar.  Here is the list of dates/venues currently scheduled but please confirm with the online calendar for any changes.

Beginner/Introductory Lessons 

  • December through April – at Red Willow Church gym from 9:00 to 11:00 am on the first two Sundays of the month.

Please sign up through website.

No advanced registration needed.

Training and other club play is currently restricted to those 18 years of age and older. Before accepting youth, our Club needs to have in place a number of critical policies, processes, resources and training which ensure the safety and protection of our youth. As other sports and youth-oriented organizations have learned, these requirements must be rigorous and must ensure, for example, that:

  • at least two adults are present who will be responsible for that youth's safety and protection, and
  • coaches and other assigned members are trained and pass a rigorous screening process including background checks.

Our Club is waiting for further guidance on these matters from Pickleball Canada, and is also having on-going discussions with other clubs to determine if a regional solution can be put in place for our youth. We appreciate your patience and will update our website as the Club approves a youth plan.
