Special Conditions:
For this course
  1. This course is for players wishing to really improve their 4 ball breaks. Yes, you regularly run 4BBs, but too often there is quite a bit of heart-thumping scrambling and big rolls involved getting from hoop to hoop, nasty angled hoops, or having to run hoops from 4-5 feet back. All in all, there are too many 'unfortunate' breakdowns stopping you from making frequent all-round breaks.
  2. So how can you eliminate those breakdowns? Avoid those big rolls? Get right in front of hoops? This course will focus you on the 5 key factors that will enable you to master 4 and 3 ball breaks. More than that, it will show you how to set up a break, how to pick up stray balls in corners or on far-off boundaries, and how to keep the break going all the way round.
  3. The course is run over 2 separate days, allowing you time to practice and incorporate into your game what you learn on Day 1 (26 April) before going on to enhance your skills and tactics on Day 2 (14 May) of the course. Each day is fairly intensive, but you will be given a comprehensive reference pack and practice guide to help you after the course.
