Developing Coaches

Coaching is all about sharing knowledge and experience, making squash fun and helping athletes to reach their potential. A quality coach can make a huge difference between a good experience and a great experience. Coaches develop, support and motivate their athletes to enable them to gain the knowledge, skills and attitudes to participate and succeed. They also provide more than just sporting knowledge – they also shape many other skills that can be used in everyday life such as leadership, teamwork and commitment.
