Client Review: "Three sessions with Susannah raised the level of my game and most importantly the level of my understanding of the game. By actually coaching as we hit and drilled, I was able to incorporate her suggestions quickly and easily. Because of how she coached, I was able to not only change my stroke mechanics but understand how that fit into game strategy! I highly recommend her. Plus she is fun." - Alisa
Sharolyn has been a sports enthusiast her entire life, but no other sport has gripped her like pickleball. Just months after picking up a paddle, she played her first tournament and has been hooked ever since. She is a student of the game and particularly loves discovering new strategies to take her game to a new level. She also enjoys sharing this knowledge with others. She has taught lessons and clinics and finds great satisfaction in mentoring newer players one-on-one. She earned her PPR Certified Coach certificate in May 2023. In addition to playing and teaching, she thoroughly enjoys the leadership side of pickleball as well. She has helped organize and manage multiple tournaments in the Treasure Valley and currently serves as board president for the Boise Area Pickleball Association (BAPA).

Personal Statement: My name is Chris Mounier, and I am a pickleball addict (maybe you are too). I have several instructor certifications. I am also a Certified Rating Specialist which not only lets you know what level you’re playing at but what you must also add to your skill set to get to the next level. I don’t know why I’m certified with so many organizations…I just can’t help myself. Let’s work together to improve your game! Whether at a beginner or an intermediate level, we can work on strokes, drop shots, volleys, serve, strategy or on the mental side of your game. You will find that I teach with a lot of patience, encouragement, repetition and strategy. I teach not only the” how” to perform a skill but “why” it is important in your overall performance. Additionally, we can create videos of your training and games and review the videos together to assess your improvement over time.
Client Review: "The day I picked up a pickleball paddle, I was hooked. Landing on a court with Brian, I was impressed by his effortless skills. I learned he taught lessons, and it sounded fun. Over the last 2 years, Brian has proven to be a brilliant strategist with an ability to watch you play and create lessons on the spot. His lessons are tailored, focusing on specific strengths and weaknesses, and his prices are reasonable. He has improved my game significantly. He challenges you to be your best on the pickleball court, making every session worthwhile and a step forward in the game. He’s not just a coach, but a dear friend." - Karie
