Special Olympics

Special Olympics Pickleball athlete training will be on Mondays beginning Aug 1 thru Nov 7, 5:30pm, Courts 3-4. Tom Asbel is the Board Liaison coordinating this endeavor. Any member interested in being a coach this year please email the Club BOD at tppickleballclub@gmail.com. Online training is provided and a background check is necessary. An initial coach’s training will be held Sunday, August 13, 2023, 9am to noon, Cypress Creek High School in Pasco. If you are unable to make this training other options may be available. Coaching requires a good attitude and the ability to show athletes how to play and enjoy the game of Pickleball.
