JUNIOR SQUASH PROGRAMS


JUNIOR SQUASH PROGRAM
The Junior Squash Program is designed for children between the ages of 6 to 14, who wish to learn to play squash and develop basic skills such as hand-eye coordination, spatial awareness, better balance, speed and agility. The program's exercises will help kids progress and improve while having fun.


FUNdamentals (ages 6 to 9)

Is about utilizing a fun and laid back environment to begin to develop the fundamental movement and sports skills that play such a critical role in squash. Children should be encouraged to compete against themselves as well as in fun and entertaining game formats with fellow children. It is important to emphasize the ABCs (Agility, Balance, and Coordination) but to do so in a relaxed environment. Children should be encouraged to participate in other sports and physical activities to continue to improve their fundamental movement and sports skills across several mediums.

LEARN TO TRAIN (ages 8 to 14)

The importance of a proper training routine cannot be understated. Learning to Train focuses on teaching young squash players the significance of training by focusing on building their technical and tactical skills. Learning to Train involves developing squash-specific skills through a concentration on the technical concepts of power under control, consistent grip, and hitting the ball with varying degrees of height, direction, spin, and distance, and the tactical concepts of the importance of the “T” and playing offense vs. defense. Children can begin to play within a competitive environment but the ratio between training and competing should be 80% training, 20% competing. Children should also be encouraged to play several other sports to help further develop fundamental sport and movement skills.
