What is it?
Aimed at 7-13 year olds, our Squash Stars course is our introductory-level junior programme and aims to build fundamental skills and confidence, whilst encouraging children to reach for the stars, both on and off court. This six-week beginners course focuses on guiding children to develop skills such as hand-eye coordination, racket work, movement, balance and match play. Each session is led by a trained leader and will give your child the chance to explore, play, and make friends in a fun and safe setting. We want to help them soar in every aspect of their life and that starts with a positive experience with sport.
What is included?
Your star will get six sessions with a professional England Squash qualified coach and will be provided with a loan racket and safety goggles to use free of charge.
What do you need to bring?
You will need to ensure your Squash Star brings with them indoor non marking sports shoes, sportswear and a drink to keep them hydrated.
Why should my child try squash?
Squash should leave your child beaming from ear to ear. It is suitable for children from all backgrounds, shapes, and sizes and provides an inclusive space where they can truly belong. It’s also an indoor sport, so they can avoid the unpredictable British weather and stay warm on our courts! By taking part in squash, your child will benefit in many ways:
- They should have tonnes of fun, whilst being active and learning a new skill.
- It’s an opportunity to meet new friends.
- They can put their new skills into practice and play squash as a family, giving the opportunity for extra quality time together.
- The sessions boost confidence and encourage children to reach for the stars.
