INFORMATION ABOUT DRILLS 

We are taking a break from 3.0 and 3.5 drills for a couple of weeks.

Our coaches have been overwhelmed with people signing up for drills who do not meet the guidelines.  This puts our coaches in the uncomfortable position of having to ask people to remove their names.  It is important to both coaches and players that participants in a drill class have similar abilities with the skills.
QCPC does not want members deciding what level player you are.  We chose a rating system that uses an outside, trained and certified professional to do our ratings to not put our coaches in the position of deciding what skill level you should be participating in.  Even with an outside rating specialist disappointment happens, but at least people can be upset with the process and not with other club members.  Ratings administered by club members for club members often result in friction and bad feelings.  Recently this has started happening in our club and the friction is directed at our and coaches who are trying to follow the guidelines we have set.  
We know people enjoy the player development activities we offer.  Last year we filled over 2,000 slots over a 6-month period.  We want to continue offering popular drill classes.  
To assure that coaches are NOT put in the position of assessing someone’s skill level, we will now require that you must have a USAPA or IPTPA rating to participate in 3.0 and 3.5 drills.  Assisted Play, 2.0 drills and 2.5 drills will continue as they are.
We will start drills again the week of October 28.
Our Player Development coaches enjoy sharing their knowledge with you and seeing people improve.  They do not enjoy asking people to remove their names from the list.  Please help us with this situation.
