17 Aug Individual Registrations for August IPTPA Training
Individuals are now welcome to sign up to take the ‘teach the teacher’ instructor clinics in both Calgary (Aug 22 and 23) and Edmonton (Aug 25) on a first come first served basis based on availability. The cost is $200 for 8 hours of training and includes a personal copy of the instruction manual. If you are interested in taking the IPTPA level I training, contact Mike Cooper at Director@pickleballalberta.org
PA is happy to report that 11 clubs will be sending a representative for this training (PA covers the cost for one person from each club). The idea is that this representative will return to thier club and help with training for new players and those at the early levels of skill development.
PA fully supports the Pickleball Canada initiative to develop an NCCP approved coaching / instructor certification program for Canada. This is a significant undertaking led by Pickleball Ontario that will take some time to complete. In the interim, as there is a large demand at the club level for consistent and well structured training programs, PA recommends the IPTPA program.
