OUR 4-step process

We follow a four-step process to clearly and effectively teach our campers new skills:

  1. Our pros name a particular skill and why it is important.

  2. Our pros demonstrate the proper execution of the skill.

  3. Our pros teach campers how to perform the skill.

  4. Campers practice the skill in game-like scenarios.

Green and Purple Abstract


At LevelUp, we understand the importance of individual feedback. One way that we do this is by recording each camper at the beginning of camp so that our pros can give commentary on their gameplay. These 4-minute pre-camp videos focus on dinking, volleys, serves, returns, and drops. They are reviewed, edited, and sent via email 2 to 3 weeks after camp; campers can rewatch their videos after camp to better understand what they should work on as well as to see the improvement that their hard work at camp earned them.
In addition, every LevelUp camper receives a training manual summarizing the tips and drills taught at camp. This way, campers don't need to worry about remembering every detail or writing things down — they'll always have notes to refer back to.

Pickleball Shots

Serving AND RETURNing

To start a point on the right foot, the first thing you need is the proper positioning for serves and returns. 90%+ of players below a 4.5 level start in the wrong location which puts them at a disadvantage before a point even begins.
Further, most returners don't know how to properly approach the net to take control after their returns.
We teach technique and strategies through drills and live game situations.


The better you get, the more valuable dinking becomes. LevelUp spends a great amount of time on the importance, fundamentals, ready position, shifting, communication, and strategy for winning dinking. We then use several drills and games to build well-rounded players.

3rd/5th Shot

By the time campers complete the LevelUp program, they will have the techniques, placement, and proper strategies for executing the drops that will get them up to the kitchen line. We also offer some special drills and games that our pros use to continually develop and improve on these skills.

Volleys and beating the bangers

The LevelUp program is all about learning and growing as players. Our pros will show you the common mistakes that people of your level make and how to overcome them. Next, we teach you the skills, drills, strategies and techniques to get you to move up a full level.

Attack Shots

If you want to be more of a threat at the kitchen “non-volley” line, we teach placement and techniques for shove/push drives, passing shots, and offensive lobs. Campers love this segment!

For Fun

Yes, everyone gets to hit a couple Erne Shots (from outside the kitchen) and Around-the-Post (ATP) Shots. While these are just short, fun drills, the majority of campers love these segments and end up incorporating them into their regular game play.
