When it comes to pickleball one size does not fit all.
Now more than ever, pickleball players are investing in private coaching, but it can be difficult and expensive to access.
To top it off, learning pickleball at a camp is like drinking from a fire hose. Too much information to process!

Hey, I'm CJ — pickleball princess, golfer girl and skier chick, cat mama to Ralph and Shirley (yes, Happy Days), and unapologetic Star Trek addict.
Since I started coaching more than three decades ago, one thing has remained the same: My commitment to see students not as they are but as what they can become and to move heaven and earth to help them realize their untapped potential.
You should know that when it comes to helping pickleball players over 50 live their best lives on and off the courts, I'm an expert. Besides being a pickleball coach, I'm a personal trainer and weight management, specialist. Good pickleball is not just technique; it's the mind and body working holistically.
Hola. My name is Tony. I’m a former tennis player – 40+ years. When not thinking about or studying pickleball, I like to travel with my wife Jill, especially if it's in Matilda (our RV).
In 2016, shortly after learning pickleball, I played with my friend Tom in the Open division at the first US Open in Naples, Florida. That morning we learned just how complicated the game can be and how far we still had to go.
Since then, I have been on a quest, both for myself and for other players I have met along the way. For myself, it has been to learn everything; figure out each angle to this sport. For others, it has been to help them see what I see, to know the game the way I know the game.
We knew that online training COULD provide excellent results (why do you think it's so popular). After all, our channels with a combined 40,000 YouTube subscribers and 4,000,000 views have helped thousands of players understand the game better and improve as players.
They were drowning in a sea of overwhelm. Jumping from one video to the next in search of the magic bullet to transform them into the player they knew they could become.
We knew we could show players how to build a foundation based on solid fundamentals from organized information, a roadmap personalized to each player's talents and abilities. But as much as we love YouTube, it wasn't set up for that!
VIPickleball is the only online learning community of its kind. It combines step-by-step teaching videos with personalized coaching from CJ and Tony and a community of like-minded people all intent on improving as players. This combination of courses, coaching, and community available 24/7 provides an unparalleled learning experience unlike anything else in the sport.

CJ and Tony, along with our vibrant community of like-minded pickleball players, will be there to encourage and bring accountability to your goals on and off the courts.

Let’s address a few elephants in the room.
You can join and cancel at anytime. No long-term commitment required
Online learning is so much more than watching videos.
We provide you a variety of resources and step by step instructions to identify the information you need to improve and learn how to incorporate it into your game.
In VIPickleball there are multiple instructional modules from which to choose.
Each module is comprised of multiple video lessons and resources designed to help you understand the concept and build a practice plan to develop the on court skills you need to achieve your playing goals.
There are three components and something to look forward to every single week inside of VIPickleball.
On-Demand Digital Library
Since CJ and Tony are most widely known for their coaching, they’ve created a variety of on-demand classes that can be accessed 24-7. But they didn’t want to stop there because they know from experience the fastest way for players to improve is through coaching. That’s why they offer weekly access to them to get all of your questions answered.
Live Coaching Opportunities
In addition to the on-demand digital library, they’ll be a variety of live events, including webinars and office hours.
Those will be conducted on Zoom. Upon completion, event replays will be posted in the digital library for you to review.
In addition to connecting with Tony and CJ, the community section of the site is where you get to surround yourself with like minded pickleball players: people who have a desire to improve.
Ask questions and share your knowledge and a variety of pickleball subjects from paddles to strategies to shoes and everything in between.
We’ve got you covered with winter-friendly programing
We have indoor drills, a fitness challenge, and much more to keep you engaged, fit and improving.
Tony and CJ love producing YouTube content. Unfortunately, that platform isn’t conducive to the step-by-step content you need to improve quickly. While you might be able to search old videos and find some valuable content, it would take hours and you still wouldn’t have all of the pieces to the puzzle. In VIPickleball we provide step-by-step content not found on YouTube as well as coaching to get your questions answered. We do all the heavy lifting: all you need to do is practice to get real results.
Please don’t give up. VIPickleball is designed as a step-by-step program that you can access at any time. You can repeat the modules as often as you like. In addition, the office hours, video breakdowns, AMA (Ask Me Anything), and other community resources are designed to create measurable improvement.
We’ve found that it’s better to learn the correct habits from the beginning than unlearn bad habits. When you understand the strategies and concepts you’ll make real progress and won’t get distracted by all the bad information online and on the courts.
Office hours are weekly coaching calls with Tony and CJ. These are conducted on Zoom and open to all members. Details on the calls can be found in the Events section in the community.
One of the shortcomings of the explosion of online pickleball coaching is it’s all one-sided. They talk and you listen, and in our opinion, it’s not the best way to learn.
In addition, there’s a reason that pickleball is so popular: IT’S SOCIAL!
CJ and Tony wanted to create a safe space for two-way communication to increase the speed at which players learn. In addition, they wanted to give you access to the insider conversations, and a chance to connect with other like minded passionate pickleball players for encouragement and support. No insults, no politics, just pickleball.
Lastly, the community influences future instructional topics.
Our community offers safe moderated discussions.
Since the conversations are easy to search, there will be less need for new members to repeatedly ask the same question. They’ll be able to access the answer and add to the ongoing discussion.
We think you’ll find a group of passionate pickleball players who want to improve their game, not the same 20 or 30 people dominating the conversation.
There’s no commitment. You can cancel at any time.
From time to time there will be guest clinicians and premium events, including live, in-person events that won’t be included in the monthly membership. However, members will be offered a discount to events sponsored by VIPickleball.
If you're still reading this, we know you're feeling called to shake up your pickleball game.
No matter what you decide to do, we care about your success.
If you want to change your performance level, and we're guessing you do because you're still here, then STOP looking for the latest and greatest.
Let's get clear about this. Regardless if you decide to go on this journey with us in VIPickleball, we want you to do one thing for yourself. Understand that no one-shot, strategy, or the latest YouTube video is standing between you and taking your pickleball game to the next level.
Outstanding performance in any sport, including pickleball, is the ability to understand the game, mold that understanding into your skills set, and then execute it over and over, under any condition.
As life-long competitive athletes and coaches, we know first-hand it takes a holistic approach to improve: technique, strategy, mental performance, and physical fitness. And it has to fit into your busy lifestyle. That's exactly how we designed VIPickleball.
There is a whole toolbox of support waiting to carry you through 2021 and beyond if it feels aligned with your pickleball goals. We want to help you take a step forward.

And VIPickleball is the *best* way to receive guidance, support, and our expertise to navigate your pickleball improvement path.
So if you're ready to do this, we look forward to seeing you in the community!
CJ and Tony
