Camp Director Daniel J Howard
Daniel (DJ) Howard comes from a sports background in which he grew up playing multiple sports before deciding to play both basketball and tennis in college. Upon graduating with a degree in Exercise Science, DJ began his career as a teaching tennis pro and spent some years coaching a state-ranked tennis team.View Daniel J's Bio ⟩
DJ discovered pickleball about six years ago and fell in love. He played his first tournament at the 5.0 level and won gold. He was hooked from that point on and immersed himself into learning all he could about teaching and playing the game better. DJ has continued to play 5.0 and pro-level events and has won numerous medals, including five at the US Open.
As a student of exercise, multiple sports, human movement, and pickleball, DJ brings unique knowledge and experience you don’t find elsewhere. His playing ability, teaching experience, pickleball knowledge, outstanding communication skills, and passion for helping people learn and grow are evident in all his clinics and camps. DJ has taught thousands of students ranging from beginner to pro level.
DJ resides in mid-Michigan and is a father to five beautiful, joyful children. He spends as much time with them as he can when not traveling to play or teach pickleball.
