Junior squash Performance Academy

Squash performance player

A high-intensity training environment for junior players aspiring to become the best they can be within sport performance, leadership and positive influence.

We invite players to talent development sessions based on their curiosity to learn and improve and understand their role socially within the group.

Our coaches provide an environment where holistic personal development is held in high regard. Players will experience an environment where learning from failure is accepted and encouraged. Players can vocalise and rationalise their errors to make corrections quicker and more efficiently.

Players will be challenged, not just to be the best they can be physically and skilfully, but also socially. Positive role modelling and leadership skills are developed too.
