About Our Coaches

We do our best as coaches to try and unlock and expose these kids full potential as squash players while still being able to have fun during these camps. They come out of camp with so much more knowledge of the sport! We help these athletes of all skill levels to reach an elite level of play. It’s rewarding as a coach when we are successful in that and we see the improvement day by day, play by play. I look forward to coaching another year at the International Squash Academy camp!
I had so much fun at the International Squash Academy camp! This was my first time at a sleep away camp and I was really nervous but the coaches made me feel right at home and comfortable. The coaches taught me so many new things that I will take with me and continue to practice! They really focused on our weaknesses and helped them turn into strengths. I can’t wait to go back and continue to learn more!
I would highly recommend this camp to those parent who are looking for a camp that is going to push their children as athletes. Sending my daughter here has really helped her improve her squash skills and techniques. The coaches were excellent and they really know the game and what they are talking about. They also did a great job focusing on the sportsmanship of the athletes. Job well done to the coaches, thanks so much!
I felt challenged at camp and appreciated the feedback from the coaches to help me get better. This will definitely help me as I am trying to make Varsity this season.
It’s so great to see these kids improve their squash game at our camps. We really like to focus on the competitive play but at the same time have fun with it. Our goal is to make these players weaknesses turn into their strengths and it’s so rewarding when we’ve succeeded in doing so. It’s great to see so many kids passionate about the same sport as these coaches.
