Kindergarten and First Grade:
We will be learning how to strike using a short handled manipulative. The students will experience striking different objects such as wiffle balls, ping pong balls, and small gator balls.
Second Grade and Third Grade:
With these grades we are in the emerging stage. We will be working on improving our basic skills while introducing new skills such as striking then balancing, walking while striking, and various strategy games.
Fourth and Fifth Grade:
During this time, fourth and fifth grades will be working on perfecting the skills of striking, passing, and control. These grades will be introduced to the concept of the game Pickleball.
Sixth grade is when game play and tactics are introduced. This will be done by learning the basic rules of the game of Pickleball. They will be using all of their skills while working with others to achieve a common goal.
