Want to learn the basics of billiards? Perhaps you’ve played some and want to get a little more serious about the game. Open to youth ages 12 through 18, all skill levels are welcome to join. Instructor Ernest Thompson will share his knowledge of the game of pool. Mr. Thompson has over 13 years of experience playing the game and is excited to pass on his knowledge and techniques to the next generation of players. Academy focus will be on the rules of the game, equipment use and other fundamentals including stick handling, positioning, and the mental aspect of the game. All equipment needed will be provided. After the final lesson, we will have a skills tournament to show off all you have learned and to crown our Youth Billiards Academy Champion.
