Intro to Squash: This is our introductory program for young athletes who are playing squash for the first time.  Led by Zac Alexander, the program teaches the fundamental skills needed to sustain a rally in a fun and encouraging environment. The objective of this program is to learn the rules of the game and develop the skills necessary to graduate to the elementary school clinics where players are expected to be able to maintain a 10+ shot rally.

Elementary School: This curriculum is for elementary school students. Participants work on and become familiar with technical fundamentals, including grip, swing and some footwork and movement patterns as well as more advanced tactics. These clinics use a “Competition” ball, which is a standard size but has a 10% longer hang-time than the standard ball. The goal of these classes is to prepare students to graduate to a standard ball and play in local tournaments.

Middle School: These clinics are for middle school students that want to work hard to improve their skills to compete effectively. The standard “Pro” ball is used in all classes and all players have full-sized racquets. Classes are 1½ hours and include speed, agility & conditioning training. We recommend participants play a match every week during the semester to put the theory they learn in the clinics into practice. The goal of these classes is to prepare students for the more intensive drilling and training in the High School program.

High School: The High School program is a competitive training program for high school students that want to improve their squash skills. Classes are 1½ and include speed, agility & conditioning training. The program is coached by INTENSITY’s Director of Squash, Alexander.  New players are required to take a private lesson to qualify for the program.

REGISTRATION: Spaces are limited and INTENSITY reserves the right to not accept a registration. INTENSITY makes every effort to ensure that the programs run to schedule but reserves the right to re-schedule in the event of insufficient sign-ups or events beyond the club’s control.

CANCELLATION POLICY: cancellations for camps or clinics must be in writing and will be accepted up to one week prior to the start of the session for refunds.

ABSENCES: due to the popularity of our programs, make-ups are not offered.

INJURIES: a doctor’s note is required in any case where make-ups are deemed an appropriate remedy for missed classes or, in the case of a prolonged injury, where a house credit may be issued for future use in a similar future program. Refunds are NOT offered and registrant agrees to make payment in full for all registered programs. Registrant agrees to pay INTENSITY reasonable attorney’s fees and costs in connection with collection of any amounts owed.
