Fall 2020 After School Racquets Programs

The After-School Racquets Program's focus is to get RCYC's young Junior Members playing squash and badminton. The goal of the program is to teach each child the excellent values of exercise, meeting new friends and playing the sport into adulthood, while having fun. Coaches work with players on the basics of each game: forehand, backhand, volley, serve, movement, and game strategy. Sportsmanship and learning how to play in a fun competitive environment will also be reinforced. The after-school program can accommodate beginner/intermediate players.

Saturday Racquets Programs

The focus of the Saturday Youth Racquets Program is to introduce RCYC Juniors to squash and badminton. The program aims to help each participant develop and improve their athletic skills, meet new friends and most importantly, have fun! The children are divided into three age groups: 3–5 years, 5–9 years and 10–16 years. During each session, participants will receive technical instruction in squash and badminton. A graduated system is used to ensure the progressive advancement of each child. Participants will learn swing technique, tactical skills, proper etiquette, safety and rules for each activity.

Squash

Competitive Squash Program (Ages 11+)

TUESDAY/THURSDAY | COMPETITIVE SQUASH PROGRAM (CSP) | AGES: 11 + 

To join this program, players must be assessed by the squash professionals. The Competitive Squash Program will begin the week of October 6th. We will be doing things a bit differently this fall to keep both your child and the teaching staff as safe as possible. Clinics will be at a limit of 4:1 ratio / one court / no mixing of groups. Juniors must bring their own water bottles. 

The CSP program is for the junior squash player who is interested in developing their squash skills so that they can compete; whether it be with a School Team or a local Squash Ontario/Canada competition. By increasing on-court time, by committing to two days a week, players can work on different aspects of their game. Players must have competitive level squash skills to participate in this program. 

Below are the dates and times for the programming. Let us know your interest so that we can start putting the pods together.
