Intermediate level: learn to compete!
Squash Club Future Stars prepares students for Middle and Upper School squash teams through technical and tactical training.
The Squash Club at EA offers training opportunities to elevate your child’s squash game.
The Future Stars Clinic series for 4th-8th grade Intermediate-level players (US Squash Rating of up to 2.5) will prepare students for Middle School squash teams as well as for US squash tournaments. Students will train technically, tactically, and physically. Competitive condition games will bring the students to the next level with demands on accuracy and strategy. Fitness will be a component of each session, consisting of on-court and off-court work on agility, stamina, court movement and core strength.
Game and match play will set the kids up for success in Middle School Squash and US Squash Silver/Bronze events.
