WELCOME TO FIRST DINK

First Dink is a youth development Pickleball organization that helps kids and teens to establish leadership, strength of character, and dedication that will continue to empower them to face the many challenges of life. The Pickleball game combines positive life skills with actionable learning experiences on and off the Pickleball court to build character, self-confidence, and resilience. Participants then take the qualities harnessed through youth Pickleball and apply them to everything they do - becoming the Game Changers of tomorrow.

"Pickleball 101" Youth Clinic

To lead into its launch on National Pickleball Day, First Dink hosted a “Pickleball 101” Youth Clinic on Saturday, August 6th at South Beach Park Pickleball Courts in Jacksonville Beach,  FL.

 

OUR PROGRAMS

Participants ages 5+ are able to partake in character-building activities ranging from team-building and conflict resolution to goal-setting and future-planning -  all while testing their skills on the Pickleball court. Using Pickleball paddles and other Pickleball Equipment, these developmental experiences prove to be both fun and meaningful!
