At Off The Wall Squash, we are constantly looking to find new ways to develop our beautiful game, and in order to do this we have to start from the grassroots up.
Putting time and energy into our juniors is the only way to develop talent for the future and to keep turning out world class athletes, but most importantly to get more children playing and having fun through squash.
This page is intended to present some of our junior development initiatives that our team is working on for juniors in both Essex and beyond. We also sometimes team up with other like minded people and organisations to really get programmes and initiatives moving. England Squash and The PSA Foundation are two organisations we are currently wokring with who have shown their support and have endorsed our Junior Progress Awards.
We believe in action, not just talking about things!
This is our Primary School Programme, it teaches important coordination and team work skills whilst providing a seamless link into regular extra curricular activity via a clear and structured process.
Over the 6 weeks, children will learn basic hand-eye co-ordination skills, spatial awareness, racket skills, movement, balance, match play and refereeing. The programme is designed to deliver 5 weeks in the school hall, with the final week inviting the children to visit the local squash courts.
The schools who are part of our programme are invited to compete in our Roman Cup Primary School Competition. You can download a case study below.
If you are a coach or school interested in the programme, please get in touch with us, we’d be delighted to discuss how we can assist getting squash into your local school.
