WHY SHOULD MY CHILD LEARN SQUASH?
While there are no guarantees your child will attend college, squash could be the edge they need to get into an Ivy League institution. Potential scholarships aside, your child will learn a sport that builds muscle, develops hand-eye coordination and agility, provides exceptional cardiovascular training plus mental sharpness.
Level 1: Getting Started
Level 1 focuses on the basics of squash, building the foundation for young players to succeed in the sport. Your kids will be evaluated to ensure the basics are mastered before moving on.
Level 2: It's Your Serve
Level 2 continues with forehand and backhand and then adds the serve, return of serve and the drive. Official rules of the game are introduced to prepare your kids for the US Squash ref test.
Level 3: Calling The Shots
This level is for kids who have passed both Level 1 and Level 2. Your child will start to put everything they have learned into “real time” and add cross-courts, lob and the drop shot.
Level 4: Master Your Game
Each week, your child will strengthen their shots, play a match and be evaluated by the coach. Shot selection, strategy and court positioning will be the focus in these “real time” matches.
TRAINING & COMPETITION
For your gifted child, they will sharpen technical development, gain tactical advantages and hone competitive instincts through situational drills, competitive match play and intensive physical training.
