I learned to play pickleball in high school P.E. class. I picked the sport up again in 2009 when Rockford experienced a movement to grow the sport in the Forest City. In 2010, I founded Northern Illinois Pickleball which is a non-profit through the Rockford Park District Foundation.
I have instructed countless people over the last decade and enjoy getting people into the game and on an active lifestyle journey. In 2019, I decided to take instruction to the next level and became a Certified Pro through the Professional Pickleball Registry (PPR). I am certified by the PPR to instruct adults and youth. I am also a USA Pickleball Youth Program Provider (YPP).
I am available for beginner, intermediate, private, and pro-play lessons, as well as facility contracting and am fully insured. I teaches outdoor lessons in the summer months, and indoor lessons for the Rockford Park District during the winter months.
Dedicated to getting you on the court!
