Festival of squash and more junior coaches

This last Friday we held a Festival of Squash with 28 Junior children from local schools.

The children came for the morning and we had 4 different activities run by Oli and Gabi, both Juniors with coaching badges.

It was a great success as you mayhave seen from the twitter post. https://twitter.com/sndschoolsport/status/1235884059353587713?s=21

We had some great feedback today from one of the teachers, "The feedback from the squash was really positive. One of my least active said 'This was so much fun, I am so glad I came'".

The school are very interested in taking this up as an activity, and as part of our Feoffe fund bid we have secured 2 hitting walls which can be taken into school and left with them for a few weeks.

Our other theme is developing more coaching capacity in the club and yesterday David and Caitlin completed their Level 1 course at Hazelwood club in London.

We now have 4 Junior coaches (2 paid for by Squash Girls can, the others by the county) who will support the coaching work across the county.

I was doing my observation for the traing the coach course and will be able to deliver Level 1 coaching courses locally, as and when we need them.

A few photos below from the Festival and of David and Caitlin on the coaching course. It was worth the 7 o'clock start!
