Pool & Billiards Lessons

This section contains articles organized into Lesson Plans.

A lesson plan would comprise of a few progressive lessons aimed at providing just enough information that will allow the 'student' to understand a concept or two at a time. As the 'student' progresses through the lesson plans, a new and slightly more advanced concept(s) is taught and so on and so forth.

Similar to a classroom environment, most of the articles will be followed by practical exercises that will help the 'student' gain more understanding of the game of pool and billiards by providing assignments that will have them use their newfound knowledge in actual practice.
