About BOOST Pickleball Tournament Tune-Up Camp Training Camps:
These camps are designed for players seeking only the highest-quality training program experience, Pickleball Central has partnered with three-time US Open Gold Medalist Steve Dawson of the World Famous Bobby Riggs Racket and Paddle center.
BOOST Tournament Tune Up camp is a two day, drill and competitive prep course, offered just prior to a tournament, designed for players who are interested in lifting their game for better tournament results. This condensed version of our 3 day camp translates into more time per day on the court and more balls struck per day and is recommended for the committed devotee. Instruction and drills are geared toward shot selection and intelligent play. This workshop is more of a " What to do " session as opposed to a " How to do" camp. Your coaches are the best players in the world, so expect only the best advice on how to give your game a BOOST for tournament success
You should expect a lot of personalized instruction, as the instructor to student ratio is 8 to 1, and each drill is led by the Coach Dawson or his hand picked 5.0 Guest Pro & staff instructors. Space is limited to 32 participants and will use 8 outdoor temporary 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 Life Time has 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.
