How to Choose the Right Summer Squash Camp

There are tons of summer squash camps out there to choose from on a yearly basis. Despite that, there’s a reason why tons of softball players head to one of our New York squash camps and all of our other locations every single summer.

The International Squash Academy has had the pleasure of welcoming thousands of campers to join us and improve their on-court skills. Our success has been made possible by our energetic and passionate coaching staff, which includes former high-level players and successful college coaches.

But what else sets us apart from the competition enough to convince you to join us at one of our many locations this summer? It’s because of what’s truly important to us, and it’s the following aspects of our camps that should help solidify that this is the right summer camp experience for your child.

The International Squash Academy is in existence for a singular purpose: to help squash athletes of all ages and ability levels to improve their performance and achieve elite levels of competitiveness. As just mentioned above, this happens by providing instruction from some of the sport’s top coaches in a positive and fun atmosphere. With everything we do, though, we have our five core values driving the bus: excellence, fun, improvement, safety and sportsmanship.

Our campers constantly tell us that their week at camp was the most memorable week of their entire summer, and it’s because of our top-notch coaching staff, a progressive instructional curriculum and the superior customer service we provide up until, during and even after camp.

We know that a lot of players come because they’re serious and competitive, but squash is a game and it’s meant to be fun. That’s why we develop a creative daily schedule that fosters meaningful interaction with all campers to bring about lasting memories and friendships.

That doesn’t mean we don’t want you to improve on the court, though! A low camper-to-coach ratio allows our staff to personally get to know each camper and be invested in their individual development.

Letting your child be in the care of other adults – whether it’s for a few hours or for a few days – can be unnerving for parents. We ensure that there’s a safe and healthy camp environment at all times thanks to a responsible staff that supervises all camp activities.

Last, but most certainly not least, we want to develop the whole person. A week is not a long time at all, but we practice teamwork through leadership opportunities that lead to on-court lessons of honesty, integrity and mutual encouragement.

Our staff is able to do this so consistently because of our official partnership with the Positive Coaching Alliance. We’re proud to employ staff members who are Double-Goal Certified with the PCA.

So, with all this to offer to campers on a yearly basis, it’s a no-brainer to join the International Squash Academy. And if this will be your first summer with us, we’re looking forward to seeing you come back each year and watching you improve by leaps and bounds!
