More about the Idaho Senior Games

A message from BAPA President, Kevin Johnson:

PickleballThis is a reminder that the Idaho Senior Games are fast approaching. There are currently referee clinics scheduled for August 2 and August 4 at 8:30 AM at Sawtooth.  These clinics will be put on by Stan Sluder.  Currently we have people signed up for August 2 but we don’t have anyone yet signed up for the 4th.  If you are planning to attend on the fourth please let Rudy Whittaker know.  His email and phone number are shown below.  If we have no one planning to attend the clinic on the 4th we may cancel that clinic.
 
cropped-Yellow-Pickleball-1.pngThis is an important year for the Idaho Senior games as this is a qualifying tournament for the 2017 Senior Nationals.  We are expecting a number of out of town guests.  On the 2nd and 4th Stan will go over the referee’s roles and responsibilities to prepare you for refereeing.  The rules and referee procedures are also available on the USAPA website.  Acting as a referee is a great way to give back to the sport!  Even if you don’t think refereeing is for you it is a great opportunity to learn more about the game and the rules of play.
 
PickleballIn addition to refereeing there are a number of other ways you can contribute to the Senior Games by volunteering.  If you haven’t done so already please contact Rudy at the Email address or phone number and let him know how and when you can help.
 
My advice is to call Rudy early before all the cushy jobs are taken!
