Who Is Bootcamp For?

The Determined Enthusiast

You are a newer pickleball fanatic who has your heart set on getting as good as you possibly can, as QUICKLY as you possibly can.

The Savvy Senior

You're not as young as you used to be and you know you can't beat your competitors with power or speed. That's why you know you're gonna have to depend on your strategy and finesse to really improve your game.

The 3.0-4.0 Competitor

You play competitively, and you've done well in your skill group, but you want to take your game to the next level and start winning more games (and medals!) at the NEXT skill level.

What Students Say:

"[Bootcamp] has been a lot of fun… I’ve taken lessons from Prem before, but it’s been really good to have a little more time to do the indepth work. My wife bought Prem’s book a couple months after we started playing pickleball… but coming to Bootcamp adds on to what the book says, to give you a deeper understanding of WHY the strategies he has work. It’s so much more helpful to have him working with you on the court rather than trying to pick it all up from the book. I’ve been able to really understand what I’m doing and get a better grasp on what changes I should make… What I like about Prem is that he gives you a chance to come to your own realization that the changes he’s suggesting are good. He believes in what he’s saying, but he doesn’t pressure you to do it his way… If you’re thinking about coming to Bootcamp, come with an open mind, ready to make some changes to your game." Craig R. - Saint Simons, GA || BOOTCAMP PARTICIPANT 

"I’d been playing for about 9 months, trying to get better and better… After a tournament, I realized I can’t do it myself, I needed to get some help. So I decided to come to Bootcamp. It’s been incredible in terms of the education I’ve gotten. Prem knows what I’m doing wrong and what I need help with. We spent a lot of time doing drills and he clarified a lot of the things I wasn’t doing right. If you are serious about pickleball, if you want to get better and you don’t just want to be a banger…consider [coming to Bootcamp] because you're going to come back a better player. I had a great time. I’m sore and I’m tired, but I’d do it again!" Charlotte S. - Middletown, CT || BOOTCAMP PARTICIPANT

The Program:

This 4-day intensive training program includes a total of 15 HOURS (but I'm usually with you much longer!) of court time in 7 on-court training sessions. 

This means you will have plenty of time with me so you can actually create lasting change in MANY aspects of your game.

Here's what we'll cover in each session...

On-Court Training Session #1: Establishing a Baseline

Session 1 is all about Evaluation and Assessment. 

It’s where I see exactly what you’re doing right and (more importantly) what you need help with so that you don’t waste a minute of time blindly following the advice of every Tom, Dick and Harriet, but you can ZERO IN on YOUR particular weaknesses, which will have the greatest impact on improving YOUR game

On-Court Training Session #2: Drop Shot 'til You Drop

Session 2 is all about The Drop Shot. 

The single most common question I get from people (once they know what a drop shot IS) is “How Can I Improve My Drop Shot?”

In session #2, we drill on the drop shot, hitting it from the baseline, from mid-court and (maybe most importantly) defending against a BAD drop shot PLUS, I give you specific feedback on how to improve YOURS.

This means that by the end of this session, you’ll know what it feels like to sink drop shot after drop shot, and EXACTLY what you were doing RIGHT to make it happen so that when you go home, my voice will be ringing in your head and you’ll be able to do the same thing at home. 

On-Court Training Session #3: Be a Shark at the Net

Session 3 is all about playing at the net. 

In this session, we’ll work on improving your dinks, volleys and put-away shots, so that you feel comfortable, confident and assured when you play at the non-volley line so that you’ll never feel intimidated playing against another team at the net. 

PLUS, I’ll show you how to slow the ball down, so that you can take control of the point, take advantage of the opportunities you get (instead of blowing them), and win MORE games — even and especially against hard-hitters. 

On-Court Training Session #4: Developing Consistency

Session 4 is all about consistency. 

I always say that there is virtually no difference in skill level between a 4.0, a 4.5 and a 5.0 player. The difference is consistency. 

In this session, we pull out the ol’ ball machine (okay, actually it’s almost brand new), and get you set up drilling on your weakest shots. This means that when you go home, instead of saying “Oh no, they’re hitting to my backhand” you’ll say, “Oh goodie, they’re hitting to my backhand. I remember how to do this. No biggie.” 

PLUS, we’ll also work on dropshots, overheads and any other shots you request, so that you don’t have to worry about leaving Bootcamp without drilling on “that one thing” you know you want to work on…

On-Court Training Session #5: Dance with Your Partner (In the Box)

Session 5 is all about positioning. 

This is many people’s FAVORITE part of Bootcamp… 

This is all about positioning yourself correctly relative to the ball and your partner so that when you go home, you will be prepared for shots that would have previously gone whizzing by you, you’ll never wonder “Whose shot should that have been?” as you watch it go sailing down the middle, and this is one of the major skills that will move your game into the advanced levels — QUICKLY.

On-Court Training Session #6: Taking It Home

Session 6 is all about YOU... 

This is another part of Bootcamp that guests rave about. This is where you’ll get your individualized “Game Plan” assignment to take home with you, so that the improvement doesn’t stop when you leave Bootcamp. You’ll know exactly what YOU need to work on to keep taking YOUR game to an even higher level.

NEW Bonus Session on Monday! Session #7: Live Coaching!

We've all been there - all that hard work in practice and drilling that you did, suddenly seems to vanish when you get into the game situation - no more! This session is all about live play an in-game strategies, all under my watchful eye to ensure that you're applying what you learned the past three days.

Accommodations are NOT included with Bootcamp, however accomodations are generally available within a short drive of the courts. All locations are conveniently chosen to be within 1 hour proximity of a main airport.

"I like Prem's style, it's great. He’s very laid back, very exact. He’s not negative about anything.... I’ve read the book several times before, [but coming to Bootcamp] gives me an experience with the drills that I can now go effectively practice."

John B. - Clearwater, FL || BOOTCAMP PARTICIPANT

“I cannot say enough great things about Prem's teachings... My husband and I had both read his book.... But to be able to hear him speak about these concepts, listen to him explain in greater detail and then get to practice over and over under his watchful eye was terrific. He has a great teaching style. He is warm and engaging and .... What I liked best about his teaching style was that he emphasized that what he was teaching was “a good way” not THE only method to playing smart pickleball. By doing that [he] took the pressure off of me to feel I needed to do it exactly [his] way and then I could concentrate more on how to execute within my limits. I now feel more confident on the court and much better prepared to deal with the no finesse blam slammers."
