Maximize Your Billiards Skills with Premium Advice from a Veteran
I have been a PBIA instructor for over 13 years as well as player for 20+ years. I am no magician, I cannot make anyone a better pool player! However, for those that are interested and motivated, I can provide the knowledge, guidance and tools for any player to become their own coach and maximize their skills.
About James (JP) R.

I can teach you anything from fundamentals like stance, pre-shot routine and stroke mechanics to more advanced concepts such as bank and kick shots, jump shots, combinations, caroms and billiard shots. So no matter if you've never held a pool cue or you're a seasoned veteran, take your game to the next level for less than the price of a good pool cue when you bring me on as your instructor/ coach!

I'd strongly recommend James. His advice, direction and feedback were incredibly helpful. I will definitely be scheduling additional lessons.

Very clear explanations. Feel like I improved with just one lesson. Gave me lots to work on. Will take another lesson.

The American Poolplayers Association (APA) was founded by professional poolplayers and Billiard Hall of Famers Terry Bell and Larry Hubbart in 1979 as the National Pool League, which became the American Poolplayers Association in 1981. The two realized the popularity of the sport, but knew, that different from other sports, there was no existing recreational league system. Today, the APA, also known as the Canadian Poolplayers Association in Canada and the Japanese Poolplayers Association in Japan, has grown to nearly 250,000 members and boasts more members than all other “national” leagues combined. The League is administered locally by a network of Franchise Operators, called League Operators, and is conducted weekly in a variety of both 8-Ball and 9-Ball team formats. There are nearly 300 APA Leagues throughout the U.S., Canada and Japan.
