Junior Squash Pathway

SQUASH+ through it’s squash player pathway programme has seen the development of junior players from beginners to fully capped international juniors.  The SQUASH + 1.2.3 Programme allows pupils to transition through the fundamentals of the game building all the key skills to see them transition into the SQUASH+ Academy Programme.

SQUASH+ 1.2.3 Programme

This SQUASH+ 1.2.3. pathway will be the starting point for most of our young aspiring junior squash players.  It is open to all young players, each level will have a mid week session and weekend session so hopefully everyone can attend either one or both.    Please have a look at the programme below.

INTRODUCTORY/BEGINNER/IMPROVER

INTRODUCTORY / BEGINNER / IMPROVER 5 to 9 years old.*
This level is all about introducing the FUNdamentals of movement and sport in a fun squash environment.

IMPROVER/INTERMEDIATE

IMPROVER / INTERMEDIATE 9 to 12 years old*
This level is focused on starting to lay the foundations of the game, learning all the required skills and how to implement them into a game structure.

INTERMEDIATE/TALENT

INTERMEDIATE / TALENT 12 to 16 years old*
Once the young performer reaches the SQUASH+ level 3 they have a good grasp of all the basic skills and how to execute them in a game situation.  These skills will be honed throughout this level whilst adding the final more difficult skills.  A focus will also be paid to the tactical aspects of the game and development as a match player.

*Please note the ages are a rough guide, it will be at the discretion of the coaching staff which level your son/daughter should be in.

SQUASH+ Academy Programme

The final phase of the SQUASH+ Squash Development Pathway is the SQUASH+ Academy Programme. This invite only programme is for those young performers showing real dedication and talent for Squash. It is a weekly smaller group session, allowing more contact time with the expert coaching staff.  Players will work through the programme from Aspire to Transitional to Elite SQUASH+ Academy.
Academy sessions are on Saturdays from 3pm.
