Coach Mark is the Pickleball Teaching Professional at the Birch Bay Activity Center (BBAC) in Birch Bay, Washington. Since 2020, he’s been helping the leadership team at this community-focused recreation center to develop and grow its pickleball program.
One of the newest initiatives at BBAC is the startup of a Junior Development Training Center. In February 2022, Coach Mark became a Certified Junior Pickleball Instructor through IPTPA, the International Pickleball Teaching Professional Association. At the same time, BBAC became an official IPTPA Junior Development Training Center.
Visit the BBAC website (and this recent article in The Northern Light newspaper) to learn more about the Coach Mark programs and events scheduled in 2022, including kickoff of Youth Pickleball and the Junior Development Training Center.
