HOW LESSONS ARE ORGANIZED

The Cedarbrae Community Centre in southwest Calgary offers affordable indoor pickleball lessons and training groups all year round for multiple levels, including beginner, novice, intermediate, advanced.


GETTING STARTED

Players who are new to pickleball are required to take A101 and A102. For those who are brand new to racquet sports, we also strongly recommend A103. Completion of these programs gives new players access to our recreational drop-in pickleball programs.


LEARNING FUNDAMENTAL STROKES

Once they have been introduced to the sport and begin playing regularly, new players may take advantage of additional lesson and practice opportunities at the novice level.


LEARNING FOUNDATIONAL DRILLS

At the 300 level, players have learned the fundamental strokes (above) and are now beginning to learn foundational drills.

The key to improving significantly at this level and beyond is becoming part of a training group. These groups open the door to higher levels of competitive pickleball.

Once players have learned stroke fundamentals and the foundational drills of intermediate pickleball, they are ready to learn to play as a team.



LEARNING ADVANCED DRILLS

At the 350 level, players are learning to thread skills learned in the lessons above into more advanced drills. The training groups are becoming stronger and more competitive.


MASTERING BATTLE DRILLS

At the 400 level, players have developed all of the basic skills. They are now learning to thread multiple skills into competitive battle drills. This level is the gateway to high performance pickleball.
