Who Is Bootcamp For?
The Determined Enthusiast
You are a newer pickleball fanatic who has your heart set on getting as good as you possibly can, as QUICKLY as you possibly can.
The Savvy Senior
You're not as young as you used to be and you know you can't beat your competitors with power or speed. That's why you know you're gonna have to depend on your strategy and finesse to really improve your game.
The 3.0-4.0 Competitor
You play competitively, and you've done well in your skill group, but you want to take your game to the next level and start winning more games (and medals!) at the NEXT skill level.
The Bootcamp Breakthrough is for you if:
You believe you are doing what you're supposed to do, but you still aren't getting the results you'd like, and you suspect that getting some customized, personalized feedback on your shots would make a BIG difference. Or...
You're dedicated to your pickleball drills, but you still aren't making the progress you'd like on the court and you need an expert's eye to assess what you're doing wrong. Or...
You're eager to find out how far you can take your game, and while you're satisfied with the progress you've made so far, you have a sense that you have the potential to play at a higher level. Or...
You and your favorite pickleball partner are starting to play more tournaments at the (3.0) - (4.0) levels and you want to start bringing home the gold...
What Students Say:
"I’d been playing for about 9 months, trying to get better and better… After a tournament, I realized I can’t do it myself, I needed to get some help.
So I decided to come to Bootcamp. It’s been incredible in terms of the education I’ve gotten. Prem knows what I’m doing wrong and what I need help with. We spent a lot of time doing drills and he clarified a lot of the things I wasn’t doing right.
If you are serious about pickleball, if you want to get better and you don’t just want to be a banger…consider [coming to Bootcamp] because you're going to come back a better player.
I had a great time. I’m sore and I’m tired, but I’d do it again!"
Charlotte S. - Middletown, CT || BOOTCAMP PARTICIPANT
"[Bootcamp] has been a lot of fun… I’ve taken lessons from Prem before, but it’s been really good to have a little more time to do the indepth work.
My wife bought Prem’s book a couple months after we started playing pickleball… but coming to Bootcamp adds on to what the book says, to give you a deeper understanding of WHY the strategies he has work. It’s so much more helpful to have him working with you on the court rather than trying to pick it all up from the book.
I’ve been able to really understand what I’m doing and get a better grasp on what changes I should make…
What I like about Prem is that he gives you a chance to come to your own realization that the changes he’s suggesting are good. He believes in what he’s saying, but he doesn’t pressure you to do it his way…
If you’re thinking about coming to Bootcamp, come with an open mind, ready to make some changes to your game."
Craig R. - Saint Simons, GA || BOOTCAMP PARTICIPANT
This 3-day intensive training program includes a total of 12 HOURS of court time in 6 on-court training sessions (Approximately 4 hours of training per day.)
This means you will have plenty of time with me so you can actually create lasting change in MANY aspects of your game.
Here's what we'll cover in each session...
On-Court Training Session #1: Establishing a Baseline
Session 1 is all about Evaluation and Assessment.
It’s where I see exactly what you’re doing right and (more importantly) what you need help with so that you don’t waste a minute of time blindly following the advice of every Tom, Dick and Harriet, but you can ZERO IN on YOUR particular weaknesses, which will have the greatest impact on improving YOUR game.
On-Court Training Session #2: Drop Shot 'til You Drop
Session 2 is all about The Drop Shot.
The single most common question I get from people (once they know what a drop shot IS) is “How Can I Improve My Drop Shot?”
In session #2, we drill on the drop shot, hitting it from the baseline, from mid-court and (maybe most importantly) defending against a BAD drop shot PLUS, I give you specific feedback on how to improve YOURS.
This means that by the end of this session, you’ll know what it feels like to sink drop shot after drop shot, and EXACTLY what you were doing RIGHT to make it happen so that when you go home, my voice will be ringing in your head and you’ll be able to do the same thing at home.
On-Court Training Session #3: Be a Shark at the Net
Session 3 is all about playing at the net.
In this session, we’ll work on improving your dinks, volleys and put-away shots, so that you feel comfortable, confident and assured when you play at the non-volley line so that you’ll never feel intimidated playing against another team at the net.
PLUS, I’ll show you how to slow the ball down, so that you can take control of the point, take advantage of the opportunities you get (instead of blowing them), and win MORE games — even and especially against hard-hitters.
On-Court Training Session #4: Developing Consistency
Session 4 is all about consistency.
I always say that there is virtually no difference in skill level between a 4.0, a 4.5 and a 5.0 player. The difference is consistency.
In this session, we pull out the ol’ ball machine (okay, actually it’s almost brand new), and get you set up drilling on your weakest shots. This means that when you go home, instead of saying “Oh no, they’re hitting to my backhand” you’ll say, “Oh goodie, they’re hitting to my backhand. I remember how to do this. No biggie.”
PLUS, we’ll also work on dropshots, overheads and any other shots you request, so that you don’t have to worry about leaving Bootcamp without drilling on “that one thing” you know you want to work on…
On-Court Training Session #5: Dance with Your Partner (In the Box)
Session 5 is all about positioning.
This is many people’s FAVORITE part of Bootcamp…
This is all about positioning yourself correctly relative to the ball and your partner so that when you go home, you will be prepared for shots that would have previously gone whizzing by you, you’ll never wonder “Whose shot should that have been?” as you watch it go sailing down the middle, and this is one of the major skills that will move your game into the advanced levels — QUICKLY.
On-Court Training Session #6: Taking It Home
Session 6 is all about applying what you learned...
This is another part of Bootcamp that guests rave about.
Drilling and training is good, but most of the time, when you get into a game setting, everything you learned goes out the window. In this session, we play out actual points where I coach you as you’re playing to implement what we’ve practiced.
That way, when you get home, you’ll already have practice PLAYING OUT A GAME with your new skills so you won’t be as likely to revert to old habits and you’ll ACTUALLY see a change after Bootcamp.
PLUS, this is also where you’ll get your individualized “Game Plan” assignment to take home with you, so that the improvement doesn’t stop when you leave Bootcamp. You’ll know exactly what YOU need to work on to keep taking YOUR game to an even higher level.
The Dates & Locations:
Accommodations are NOT included with Bootcamp, however accomodations are generally available within a short drive of the courts. All locations are conveniently chosen to be within 1 hour proximity of a main airport.
"I like Prem's style, it's great. He’s very laid back, very exact. He’s not negative about anything.... I’ve read the book several times before, [but coming to Bootcamp] gives me an experience with the drills that I can now go effectively practice."
John B. - Clearwater, FL || BOOTCAMP PARTICIPANT
And The Learning Starts Today...
When you register for Bootcamp today, you DON'T have to WAIT for Bootcamp in order to get started improving your game, because you'll get...
Immediate, Complementary Access to My Dropshot Masterclass Online Training Program ($497.00 Value!)
Immediate access to the e-book version of my best-selling book, Smart Pickleball (Regularly $9.99)
An Autographed Copy of My Book, Smart Pickleball (Regularly $24.95) sent to your doorstep within a week of registering
During this 3-day Bootcamp, you and your partner will get over 12+ HOURS of court time with me.
The last person I worked with privately paid $1,000 for 2.5 hours of court time with me… (At that rate, Bootcamp would cost about $8,000…)
The current rate for a 1-Day VIP Intensive with me is just about $5,000 a day.
These rates might seem high until you remember there are about 3 million pickleball players in the world (and more every day) but just one of me.
And then you’ve also got to remember that the expertise you’ll draw on at Bootcamp took me DECADES to develop (starting in my table tennis days) and I’ve invested thousands and thousands of dollars in travel expenses and tournament fees, not to mention easily over ten thousand hours of playing, practicing and teaching.
So with all that in mind, the regular price for Bootcamp should be about $3,000, but I've decided to set the 2017 price at just $1997 per person, $1497 each for partners.
I highly recommend that you bring a partner with you to Bootcamp. That way, you’ll have someone to practice with when you go home, and better yet, you’ll have someone to PLAY with who knows what they are supposed to do and when!
But while I strongly suggest you register with a partner, I also recognize that, depending on your location and situation, it may not be realistic to find someone else to bring with you.
I don’t want anyone to be penalized just because they don’t happen to have a pickleball-loving spouse or practice partner to jump at the chance.
Snce I KNOW you are eager to improve your game, I have decided to extend the Partners' special rate to you, even if you sign up as an individual.
$1997$1497 per person

If you are 100% committed to improving your game, I want you to feel absolutely confident ??that? Bootcamp? will help you do it?. Here's how my refund policy works...
Bootcamps frequently sell out with waiting lists. In order to be fair to the other players who are fully committed to showing up to bootcamp, there are NO refunds prior bootcamp.
However, if you purchase today and for any reason aren't able to attend, you can always transfer 100% of your purchase price to a different date/location OR transfer your registration to another person at no additional cost up to 30 days prior to bootcamp.
Last minute cancellations can really have a big impact on these events. It’s a headache for my team and having 3 people on a court instead of 4 can impact the rest of the players as well. For this reason, a $197 transfer fee will be deducted from your purchase price for any cancellations or transfers made within 30 days of bootcamp.
After Bootcamp - Wait 30 Days
You're going to learn a LOT at bootcamp, and while you will definitely notice plenty of immediate improvement, i??t's going to take some time to ?fully ?integrate? what you've learned? into your game.
?But I want to make sure you feel that your game has actually improved as a result of what you learn at bootcamp.?
If you participate fully in Bootcamp and don’t feel like it has improved your level of play after returning home for 30 days, write to me and let me know what you're struggling with. I'll do my best to help you address your challenges, and if it doesn't work out, ?you can ask for? up to? a ?50% refund.
I won't get back my hours on the court with you, but I do want you to walk away satisfied with your experience.
“I cannot say enough great things about Prem's teachings... My husband and I had both read his book.... But to be able to hear him speak about these concepts, listen to him explain in greater detail and then get to practice over and over under his watchful eye was terrific. He has a great teaching style. He is warm and engaging and .... What I liked best about his teaching style was that he emphasized that what he was teaching was “a good way” not THE only method to playing smart pickleball. By doing that [he] took the pressure off of me to feel I needed to do it exactly [his] way and then I could concentrate more on how to execute within my limits. I now feel more confident on the court and much better prepared to deal with the no finesse blam slammers."
