Junior Development

Our junior squash coaching program provides exciting and fun opportunities for kids to learn and develop their skills. Our coaches are experienced players who will help teach juniors about strategies, technique, court movement, as well as incorporating fun drills and games designed to improve skills. The coaches focus on every player to ensure everyone has a great time and can achieve their full potential! All gear is included for participants.

 

Allocation to the junior groups is based on both age and ability.
