Help Needed – Whitmer High School Pickleball, Friday November 8, 2013

Hi Everyone,
I have been contacted again by Jamie Clay, High School PE teacher at Whitmer High School, wanting to see if we would be able to come in and work with his kids again to play pickleball.
We are going to do all the classes on Friday, November 8, starting with the 8-9 am class, then the 9:30 to 10:30 am class, the 11 to noon class and finish with the 1:15 class. Lunch will be provided for those helping

Where to go:  Whitmer High School  is off Alexis Road, pull onto either Whitmer Drive or the access drive, park in the lot between the high school and the football field and go directly to the field house.  No need to check in at the main office. If anyone is asked, we are working with Jamie Clay and he has cleared us as a group.

Please let me know if you can help me with any of these times. Please call me on my cell at 419-509-3023 or email at bucksrgr8r@aol.com.
Much appreciated,
Connie

Volunteers Needed – Summer PE Classes tomorrow at 10am Rossford Pickleball Complex

Tomorrow is round two with the Summer Physical Education classes. We need volunteers to help Connie at 10 am tomorrow, June 15th at the Rossford courts.  There will be 60 high school students attending the session. These are kids from all the local high schools that have chosen to take their PE requirement during the summer so they were able to fit more academic classes into their regular school session.

This is an excellent opportunity to help grow pickleball with the younger generation and we are so glad to be hosting this type of community activity on our courts.  If you are available tomorrow, please consider helping Connie out and email her at bucksrgr8r@aol.com to let her know you can help.  A big thanks to Connie for leading and setting this up. I hope many of you can adjust your schedules to give her a helping hand.

Thanks in advance to anyone willing to help!

Rossford High School Summer PE Classes – Volunteers Needed

Are you a retired gym teacher, coach or just someone who loves the game of Pickleball?  Connie is looking for help with teaching Pickleball during the Rossford’s summer PE classes.  She would like six volunteers to work with the students this Friday,  June 8 and next Friday, June 15.  The class will consist of 50 + students which we will break into two groups spending an hour with each group.  The coaches purchased 24 Diller paddles plus balls.  They will show the informational video from the USAPA website and go over the rules and regulations of Pickleball on  Thursday.  We will then work  with the students in 2 sessions on Friday to play some real games and have fun.  Having six volunteers would give us the ability to have one person on each court to work  with the players.
If you are able to help Connie with this, please email her at bucksrgr8r@aol.com.
This is a great opportunity to share Pickleball with the next generation!
Thanks in advance to all who participate.
