For the committed junior player, we offer  consistent, demanding programming for teenagers among groups of their peers.  The Academy is aimed at players who have decided to commit to squash as their primary or secondary sport and intend to play competitively throughout the year.

Academy programs blend three elements crucial to development as a player: private lessons to focus on technical deficiencies and hone skills, clinics to provide a sense of camaraderie and build dynamic practice scenarios and generate consistency in shots and movement, and match play during which players of a similar skill level can play in game situations.  Match play, tournaments and monthly video assessments will provide touch points to understand areas for focus in the coming weeks and months.
