Our Values

To Infinity & Beyond

We believe that you should shoot for the stars. We strive to put our best foot forward, in all things coaching, clinics, and tournaments and go ABOVE AND BEYOND so that you have the tools and ability to excel past your goals.

Never limit yourself on what you perceive is possible. Let’s not look for the answer of “if we can”, but rather “how we can”. Just as we promise to never limit ourselves to “if”, but rather “how”, we encourage you to set and reach goals thinking about the “how”.

Sophia Racine

Sophia has a passion for many things but especially for people, sports, design, and wine (this comes from her Italian roots).

She has her Bachelor in Urban Planning and is an Urban Planner for Stantec in Montréal. Some of her favorite projects in Urban Planning include community gardens, Public Transportation, T.O.D ( Transit Oriented Development), and the Urban Design of a Major Baseball Stadium.

She is a natural athlete, competing at the college level in hockey and can easily pick up any sport she finds…including Pickleball. Soon after she discovered Pickleball, she became eager to improve and compete. She has quickly learned and excelled, now competing at the highest level in Québec in less than 6 months! Even though she loves it, she still has the occasional paddle throw. (haha, only kidding)

With her passion for people, and now pickleball, she couldn’t have been more excited to start this new venture with Elite Pickleball!
