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.

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!
