Pickleball is among the fastest growing sports in the USA, and it is rapidly catching on in other countries as well. With the addition of new pickleball courts in thousands of towns, comes the need to introduce a small army of potential players to the game and help them consistently and safely improve their skills.

To meet that need USAPA has developed Teaching Guidelines as the initial phase of a broad program to support local player-teachers who are entrusted with the responsibility to teach the game to beginner and intermediate players. The Guidelines (released to members Sept. 12, 2016) provide a comprehensive document that prescribes minimum content for developing lesson plans, plus teaching prerequisites, pickleball etiquette, common drills, a teacher code of conduct and more.

To learn more about the four-phase program, phases 2 and 3 of which are still under development, click on Teacher Support Program below.
