weekend intensive trainings - 08-27-2019, 01:27 PM

What are everyone's thoughts on multi-day intensives? Do they really kick up your game as much as I am hearing?

Also, in the same line of questioning, if so.... does anyone know of any multi-day intensive trainings coming up, preferably on the west coast or Midwest?

You mean two day lessons from an instructor?

I am a big believer in pool boot camps.

https://forums.azbilliards.com/showt...ighlight=fargo

I have done local 1:1 training and was just thinking of opening up the doors to something like a boot camp experience. I have an extra room next to my pool room with a 9' diamond. I sent you a PM in case you'd like to connect.

I did a weekend group intensive training and it was not really worth it. One on one is the only way to go.
One exception might be a group session with professional players. Hanging out with a Strickland or an Archer for a weekend would be worth a few bucks.

Dr. Dave's Billiard University does three-day "boot camps" in Fort Collins, CO - looks like one a year. Unfortunately, this year's has already passed, but there's always next summer...

Thanks for posting this Pat.

For those interested, the Billiards University (BU) hosts a 3-day "Overview Course" Boot Camp and a 3-day "Advanced Course" Boot Camp every July, on back-to-back weekends (for those who want to attend both). The spots usually fill up well in advance; so if anybody is interested, don't wait too long to sign up.

The dates, cost, and program are described in detail on the BU Summer School Boot Camps website.

Regards,
Dave

DrDave,

We teach these in a local pool hall. I only have one table at home, which is OK for private individual lessons but not OK for a group of 12 students and 3 instructors!

Regards,
Dave

I've taken a 3 day SPF with Scott Lee, and I thought it was worth it.


My ego is writing checks that my stroke can't cash.

I hear you Poolhall60561...That's why I created the SPF National Pool School Tour. One on one teaching, in small groups of 8, with the top professional instructors in the country. Four days, 8 hrs each day. 12 cities, 12 poolrooms, 12 states. High intensity training for all level players. Sponsored by Predator, featuring Revo Cues, all students receive a $250 coupon from Predator, with paid tuition.

It really depends on what you're looking for, your learning style and your follow-up / dedication.

Generally, weekend trainings sessions are NOT going to kick your game up. You might get a very short boost in your game just based on attitude, but most times, people fall right back into their old habits. But, you will certainly get tools that you can use to practice - and practice is probably the only thing that will net you any meaningful results. After instruction, the burden is still on the player to figure out how to better themselves.

In addition to getting coaching, you should probably come up with some legitimate training routine that will expand your tool box and improve your consistency. Getting a table and banging balls or just playing games won't get you there.

Put in the time and you'll see the results. A coach can streamline your efforts.

Pool boot camp - 09-13-2019, 01:19 PM

I believe in these. The goal is not to elevate your game in three days. The goal is to identify where youíre stuck, develop a plan to get out of a rut, and then take the first few steps together with someone that can make sure youíre in the right path so your next three months donít look the same as your last three years. Combine this with private instruction from someone that can identify opportunities that most wouldnít know existed and Iíve had a lot of success helping people break through plateaus. No magic bullets, just hard work, but work that is targeted and efficient.

I just completed one with the original poster and heíll be posting a review soon. Iíll be making these available to those who are interested and that I feel Iím a good fit for. Dr Dave and Scott are awesome and I recommend taking advantage. As for me, Iíve broken through many plateaus in my life and am prepared to partner with anyone who wants to do the same. More to come. Thanks all.
