These are intensive but fun and rewarding weekends of training and evaluation run by three knowledgeable, experienced, and enthusiastic instructors:

Dr. Dave
Dr. Dave Alciatore

Samm Diep

Our goal is to help you raise your game to the next level. The Overview Course is open and appropriate to players of all ability levels from beginner to advanced. The Advanced Course is open only to those who have already taken the Overview Course or players who already have solid fundamentals, good pool knowledge and intermediate-to-advanced skills. In both courses, the instruction is catered to each individual so you can learn at your own pace. BU and PBIA instructor certification and upgrade training is also available for those interested in teaching.
