Private Lessons

Private lessons offer the opportunity to get one-on-one time with a coach. Each lesson is tailored to the individual student, which allows for more focused training. Lessons are 20-30 minutes, and can cover technique, tactics, goal setting, and tournament preparation.  If you would like to start private lessons, or get more information about scheduling and pricing, speak with your coach.
