Our goal is to help you raise your game to the next level. The Overview Course (see topics covered below) is open and appropriate to players of all ability levels from beginner to advanced. The Advanced Course (see topics covered below) is open only to those who have already taken the Overview Course or who have solid proficiency in all Overview Course topics. 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.

Upcoming Dates and Location
