MD - Baltimore Pickleball Certification

PPR has created detailed on court education for coaches working with adult pickleball players.
PPR certification workshops illustrate how to deliver quality individual and group lessons for adult beginner and improver adults, while attending to
individual needs. The certification process consists of a recommended 2 hours of at home study using the study guide. Then a 3 hour self-paced online
course with a recommended 2 hours of practice followed by a 4 hour on court workshop preparing coaches for a three part assessment phase. The two
areas assessed during the workshop are personal skills demonstration and the delivery of a 20-minute group lesson highlighting coaching skills. The final
assessment is an online written exam submitted within seven (7) days of completion of the workshop.

 

Key Elements of the PPR

- Creating success for beginner pickleball players
