US Squash is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization which serves as the only national governing body and membership organization for the sport in the United States. Founded in 1904 and headquartered in Philadelphia, it is a member of the U.S. Olympic Committee, the Pan American Squash Federation and the World Squash Federation.

As a member of the 7th and 8th-grade squash team, you must:
1) Register (no fee) yourself on US Squash 
2) Register a parent on US Squash
3) Complete the Referee Exam* ($45)
*New to squash players will work toward this at practice.
Returning players will need to check their profile and see if they have aged up and need to take the next level referee exam.


Please Note: If you will be competing in US Squash Tournaments (highly recommended) OR if you will be going to Nationals, you will have to purchase a US Squash paid membership that will be valid through the last day of Nationals.

US Squash accredits and supports a calendar of junior tournaments throughout the country. Tournaments are structured into several levels, each designed to offer competitive opportunities for all ages and levels.
