What is pickleball?! It is a sweet sport with a sour name, a craze that is sweeping the nation. It combines many elements of tennis, badminton and Ping-pong. The game is played both indoors and outdoors on a badminton-size court, with a slightly modified tennis net, paddles and a plastic ball. Our outdoor courts are located at Model Elementary School, 412 South Greene Road, in Goshen (open seasonally). If you want to learn more or see what pickleball mania is all about, you may also join us for indoor play at Model Elementary School in November. For more information, please contact Kim Stephens at 534-2901. 

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

This introductory session will give participants a basic understanding of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu history, theory and techniques. Classes will include a warmup, stretching and technical instruction. Self-defense techniques and movement drills, without striking, also will be taught. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is unique to most
other self-defense systems as it focuses on use of leverage and proper technique, taking the attacker to the ground and defusing the situation by use of joint locks and holds. Class is taught by Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Goshen instructor Bryan Barrick at 427 West Pike Street, Suite 2 (behind Bob Evans and Walgreens). Session cost is $25.00.

Winter Session: February 7, 14 and 21
Youth Class (ages 4–14): 5:45–6:30 pm
Adult Class (ages 15+): 6:30–7:30 pm
Fee: $25.00
