About BOOST Pickleball Intermediate Training Camps:

These camps are designed for players seeking only the highest-quality training program experience, Pickleball Central has partnered with two-time US Open Gold Medalist Steve Dawson of the World Famous Bobby Riggs Racquet and Paddle center and Rees Pioneer Park for this Brigham City Training Camp.

The camp will be run using a program developed by Coach Dawson using his 25+ years of competitive training experience. These camps are designed for players rated 3.0-4.0 who are seeking a "play hard, compete hard, have fun" environment. All of the drills and skills are designed to translate immediately into competitive play, and each drill is based on a specific competition objective. The program is designed not only to improve your mechanics and shot techniques, it is designed to help improve your approach to game and match play - making you both a better player, and a more formidable competitor. Over three days, you will spend over 15 hours (plus optional open play time) in thoughtfully structured clinics, playing and competing with similarly skilled players. You should expect a lot of personalized instruction, as the instructor to student ratio is 8 to 1, and each drill is led by Coach Dawson and his hand picked 5.0 Guest Pro & staff instructors. Space is limited to 64 participants and will use 16 dedicated pickleball courts.

Our Pickleball Training Camps will focus on skill development, strategy, shot technique, practice methods, and mental preparation to improve your overall game. These programs are sponsored by PickleballTournaments.com, and administered by Pickleball Central so you can sign up with confidence. The team at the Austin Tennis & Pickleball Center have collaborated with Pickleball Central and PickleballTournaments.com to create the best possible program, so we guarantee your satisfaction with this training camp! You will receive world-class instruction from nationally ranked players and guest professionals, in a supportive and upbeat atmosphere.

Unique to these camps is the use of both a highly trained and experienced Head Professional Instructor along with a proven championship winning caliber Guest Pro Instructor who will share unique insights into what it takes to succeed at the highest level of the sport. The Head Pro is certified to teach this program by Steve Dawson. The Guest Pros (see which camps have which guest pros below) are hand selected by Coach Dawson and are familiar with his approach to teaching winning pickleball. The result is you will get access to an amazing amount of face-to-face time with some of the best players in the game.

5 of 5 BOOST Pickleball Camp - Brigham City UT August 28, 2019
Reviewer: Jeff Ratkovich from Glendale, AZ United States  
My wife and I signed up for this 3-day BOOST Pickleball Camp because we enjoy playing pickleball, and the timing of mid-August was convenient for our summer vacation together. The camp experience EXCEEDED our expectations in every way. Beginning with the registration process through PickleballCentral.com, everything was very organized, and the staff was very welcoming. Steve Dawson is not only a very accomplished pro pickleball (and tennis) player, but he was also a master at teaching the skills of pickleball to our group of campers. Along with Coach Peter and Coach Del, Steve  was very enthusiastic and engaging with all of us, and we received just the right blend of technical instructions and opportunities to put our new found skills into practice. My wife and I now feel that we have learned how to play pickleball the "correct way" (before we start developing too many bad habits), and we are very eager to put these skills into action at our local courts.

Awesome experience!!!
