Key points of our coaching programme in Solihull are:
1 – Fun
Firstly our coaching sessions are designed to be fun for those taken part whilst they learn the fundamental techniques.
2 – Progression
We work to a wristband system, like karate, so that children can measure their progress as their skills improve.
3 – Tournaments
Once Juniors are ready for competition they can join the club leagues and are encouraged to participate in Warwickshire Junior squash tournaments. We are very lucky that Warwickshire is one of the leading counties in the UK for competitive squash.
