Evergreen Junior Program:
Since 1971, our club has had one of the longest running and most successful junior squash programs in the province. It has been an effort of many volunteers combined with highly experienced squash professionals.
Beginning in 2012, the Junior Program will be split into 3 sessions: Fall, Winter and Spring. The fall program will begin September 7, 2012 and run into December.
Please see the schedule page for session dates.
The program encompasses various aspects of squash development:
- Squash skills: Drills for skills, critical thinking and strategy
- Fitness: Aerobic, anaerobic, strength, elasticity
- Injury prevention: stretching, and specific exercises
- Learning to play squash games, and have fun participating in squash events and competition
- Mental preparation: Positive thinking, self-motivation and visualization
- Learning to set, and accomplish, short and long term goals
Doubles Juniors Squash
As part of the program we like to introduce the Intermediate, and Advanced juniors to the game of Doubles Squash. It is a great way to integrate them into a team modality, to learn strategy, and to share and complement abilities in this fun, and exciting mode of squash.
We will have events and tournaments in which they will be able to participate.
Bring a friend
Having a friend share your sport is always more fun because you share the same experiences, and have one more thing in common. This also helps promote squash at the same time. Have your friend join you in a junior training session, and see how they like it.
This is a great way to get involved in your kids activities. They also benefit, as they see their parents understanding, and enjoying what they are doing. It has been proven that kids with parents volunteering do better, and get more motivated to participate in any sport.
In order to maintain the affordable price, the Junior program is dependent on volunteers. We encourage parents to be available for various duties including coaching, court monitors, and for our annual Junior tournament. Your contribution will be greatly appreciated!
