True! We've seen juniors not much taller than their rackets thrash men old enough to be their dads. Now that's gotta be cooler than sitting in front of PlayStation. Surely.
We have two grades for Juniors - Under 12s and Under 19s. The only real difference is that Under 19s get a membership swipe card to get in the door and flick on the squash lights.
Junior Club nights are free for members and $10 for visitors and run each Friday during term time.
Club night held on Thursdays during Terms 1 and 4 of the school year.
CLUB CHAMPS - held first term.
Youth Coaching Programme is run by our Head Professional, David Mustard and includes term coaching, holiday clinics, tournaments, private & group coaching. Ask mum or dad to call David Mustard (tennis) on 021 476 606.
Squash Junior Club Night runs every Friday during chool terms on Fridays from 4-6pm. Non-members are welcome to come along and try out a few sessions to see if they like squash and want to continue. We're sure you will!
Our coach Jarrod van Driel has many programmes and opportunities on offer for all ages and levels of junior squash players.
The Double Dot Squash programme follows an individualised approach. There is no single style or instruction manual for coaching which can be repeated for every player. Every player is an individual with their own style, strengths, weaknesses, and ways of communicating and learning. Double Dot Squash works closely with their players to understand them as individuals and how they work. They can then adapt and provide them coaching in a way which best fits them and an individualised approach towards achieving their goals and success. They listen, motivate, and push our players to be ambitious and enjoy every time they step on the court.
