Our Philosophy

At NeuroPickleball we apply brain science to improve your pickleball performance.  Neuroscience teaches us how human brains learn best, and gives us innovative options for problem-solving.  This sounds like it might get complicated, but it’s often so much easier than you’d think.  Neuroscience helps us work smarter, not harder, and our use of these principles sets us apart from other coaches and programs.

We relentlessly pursue results for our clients:

  • We tailor our instruction and coaching to your individual needs, because we know that everybody’s different.  What’s holding you back may be pickleball skills, strategy, or it might be athletic attributes like vision, mobility, agility, balance, consistency, confidence, or focus.  
  • Critics tell you what you’re doing wrong, coaches tell you how to fix your problems. We solve pickleball problems and find solutions that work for you.  
  • Our clients improve during our clinics. We also show you how to continue improving after the clinic, on the court, and even at home or in the office.
  • Clients who take all three of our most popular clinics, and then continue to use the drils and practice we teach you, will raise their level of play to a 3.5 or higher.
