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 novice, intermediate, advanced, and high performance.


GETTING STARTED

Players who are new to pickleball are required to take either A100 or A101/A102. Completion of these programs gives new players access to recreational pickleball programs.


LEARNING FUNDAMENTAL STROKES

Whether you are new to racquet sports or just new to pickleball, these three groups of fundamentals are essential for players who want to advance.

Proficiency in the above fundamentals opens the door to training with other players at the next 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 TEAM PLAY

At the 300 level, players begin to play with regular partners. Therefore many take team lessons in which they learn to play as a team.

Once players have learned to play as a team, they are ready to start training as a team and preparing to compete in tournaments.


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.


HIGH PERFORMANCE PICKLEBALL

Beyond the 400-level, players no longer need group lessons. They simply need court time to engage in competitive battle drills with players at their level.
