About Our Coaches
Head Squash Coach Paul Assaiante enters his 25th season as Trinity College Head Men's Squash Coach in 2018-19, after guiding the Bantams to a 19-1 record, an 11th consecutive NESCAC Championship title and their 16th College Squash Association (CSA) National Team Championship crown in recent years.
Assaiante guided Trinity to 13 consecutive CSA National titles from 1999 to 2011 and 252 wins in a row which is the longest winning streak in the history of intercollegiate varsity sports.

Assaiante’s professional athletic career was nothing short of spectacular. He was one-half of the U.S. national doubles championship duo in 1994 and captured the USSRA 50-and-over men’s squash title in 2004. Joining Assaiante will be members of the Trinity Squash Coaching Staff and Team.

My son has recently just picked up this sport and sending him to the International Squash Academy camp was such a great decision. The coaches don’t waste any time teaching these kids and working on their skills at individual players. My son’s skill have improved so much since the camp and I would highly recommend sending your children here! The Coaches were great!
I met so many new friends who were just as passionate about this sport as I am which made it that much more fun for me! The coaches did an awesome job with helping us improve our skills. They really focus on our level of play. At the end of this camp I saw a lot of amazing results for myself as a player and I can’t wait to go back for more!
I had such a good time at camp. The coaches were great, and so was the food. We had so much fun staying in the dorms.
This camp was very well run and organized. The large number of campers allowed for appropriate skill groups and great competition. I would recommend this camp to others looking to get better at squash.
It was great to be with other kids who love the same thing I do. The coaches were talented and friendly and taught us a lot of new things. See you next year.
