Program Goals 


In Collaboration with
M Squash SoNo
85 Water Street South Norwalk

New Canaan public school squash players in 7th and 8th grades will focus on the further development of technical and tactical skills, increased fitness and team dynamics in preparation for interscholastic competition, particularly at the high school level. The program will ensure early focus on those participants who have not already achieved US Squash Club Referee Certification. Players will also be able to accurately complete a match score sheet, compete in and understand the protocols for team play and peer-coach teammates during competition. We also welcome players brand new to squash.

All players are expected to adhere to the New Canaan Squash, Inc. Code of Conduct.

Additional Details:
Arrive 10 minutes before practice starts. 
Late arrivals may not be allowed to play as it disrupts the team to reorganize drills to work the later arrival in.
Transportation by carpool. Please be inclusive to all players.
