01 Dec New Board Committees – Referee Training & Player Development
We have formed two committees reporting to Mike Cooper, Director at Large on the PA Board of Directors:
- Referee Training & Development; and
- Player Development & Coaching.
Why? To become a Provincial Sports Organization PA must have training and certification program for referees, as well as, instructors and coaches. We will work with Pickleball Canada on both of these initiatives – the referee training program is a lot further along at this time.
Thanks to Walter Buehler and Trevor Burndred for leading the Referee Training & Development committee – you’ll be hearing more from them regarding training opportuities in the new year. Contact them at RefereeDevelopment@pickleballalberta.org
Peter Walker is leading the player development and coaching initiative which is in an early stage of development with Pickleball Canada. Contact him at PlayerDevelopment@pickleballalberta.org
