in SUMMER 2023, we offered the following:

summer SQUASH CAMPS

 SquashWest Summer Sessions are designed to improve the skills of new players while increasing confidence on the court. Emphasis is placed on good sportsmanship.

We will be implementing two different training sessions daily, Monday through Friday, to better cater to the needs of our athletes. The morning session, called the Quick-Start Future Stars Program, will run from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm. The afternoon session, called the Next-level Elite Training Camp, will cater to our advanced students who are aiming to elevate their game to the college level will take place from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm. This session is open to high school athletes, college players, and adults with a US Squash rating of 4.0 and above.

Quick-Start Future Stars Program

Designed for athletes new to the game through to Bronze level players, our Future Stars Quick-Start program will equip you with the fundamentals and get you ready to play competitive matches. We will focus on developing correct technique, increasing racquet head speed, and hitting the ball accurately to targets on the court. Our aim is to simplify the game, enabling students to quickly progress to the next level.

These sessions are invaluable for players looking to participate in Bronze and Silver tournaments in the Fall.
