Intensive Pool Clinic
Pool Lessons & Billiard Lessons – The Intensive is our “boot camp” for billiard players of every level. After 25 years of refinement, we feel this is the best pool player training program available. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been playing. This is the true – and often surprising – billiards foundation every player needs, taught by highly experienced, full–time pool instructors.
We identify & correct your form flaws. We all have some, we’re typically not aware of them, and they are what’s holding us back. To play better pool, you need a simple, precise, consistent setup and stroke that works with your body. You need clear, physics-correct understanding of ball behavior, and practical methods for finding perfect aim.
You want to enjoy the game more, and play with dignity. We promise this, and more, will happen for you.

“Love it, I feel better already”
“Pace is good for all skill levels. Instructors are very approachable and the video analysis is particularly helpful.”
“I’ve played pool all my life and I thought I knew the game well; but after going to the pool clinic I was very happy with what I got out of it. The instructor was great and very helpful, so I’m going to take the advanced class also. Thanks”
“Excited to practice what I have learned and am glad I took the class. I have a good foundation to use for continuing to learn and become a better player.”
“Individual instruction was positive with all instructors. I mean the put forth positive comments rather than negative comments to gain corrective action.”
