Pickleball at Shape Florida!
135 PHYSICAL AND HEALTH EDUCATORS ATTEND PICKLEBALL DEMONSTRATION! Tracy Bowen-Brown – Coordinator of K-12 Health, Physical and Driver Education of Collier County Public Schools, Carol Caefer, Assistant Director – Pickleball For All and Jim Ludwig Executive Director – Pickleball For All, USAPA District Ambassador Southern Tropics, Event Director – US Open Pickleball Championships all worked together to present a 6 step teaching program for the Society of Health and Physical Educators of Florida. The Convention was held at the Tradewinds Resort in St. Petersburg, FL on October 15, 2016.
With an expected 25 – 35 expected to show we were thrilled to see an amazing 135 interested participants. There were two pickleball players in this crowd of educators, that was a surprise to me!
The teaching module is designed to help educators teach a class of students, in some cases may number up to 60. As we know there are not enough courts in schools to have sixty people play at the same time. Tracy set up a six station teaching program to include court dimensions, rules, serve, the dink shot, basic court play and more advanced play.
We continue to spread the sport of pickleball reaching new worlds all the time!
