Squash Level III builds experienced players’ fundamentals to help them get even more power, finesse, and success from their game. Each week focuses on central, critical skills, though other related on- and off-court elements will be addressed. Throughout, the camp makes an asset of Hopkins’ hot courts; the pace is high, and outright winners are very difficult, a combination that acclimatizes players to the long, creative points of advanced junior squash. Camp limited to twelve players.
We select coaches based on their ability to communicate with and inspire junior players. We have had coaches from Trinity College, Yale College, and the PSA tour. We have found great success with coaches from A-level prep schools and private clubs.
Tom Pashley: Coach for Sacred Heart, Greenwich. Competed on the PSA world tour for 5 years. Played for England at junior European and World championships. Highest world ranking: 105
Jenn Pellitier played for Canada throughout her junior career at 2 Pan-American Championships and one World Championships. Played for Trinity College, capturing the National Championship in 2014.
Whitney Stewart competed in Juniors, High School, and College at National Level Championships; individually ranked in Top 10 in the US and Canada. Played Pro in France and league in South Africa. Coached since age 16.
We maintain a 3:1 (or better) player:coach ratio, which is extraordinarily low.
