Lymm Squash Academy

About Lymm Squash Academy

Lymm Squash Academy, run and led by Coaches at Lymm Squash Club, has been introduced with the following aims:

  • To encourage Junior participation in Squash and other sports
  • To engage with the local community and offer a valuable sporting venue
  • To develop and nurture future talent into competitive Squash and its professions

The Academy promotes Squash to the local community by hosting public ‘Try-It’ sessions throughout the year and runs 6 week coaching programs for 5-11yr and 12-17yr age groups.

 

About Mini Squash

Lymm Squash own a range of Mini Squash Equipment, designed for children of different size, age and ability, which eases their introduction to Squash.

Mini Squash was designed by a practising Head of PE for Key Stage 1 and 2 children, and all ESR Affiliated Squash Coaches are qualified to coach Mini Squash sessions.

As juniors develop, coaches can provide all the support and advice needed to progress in the sport; such as entry into National competitions, coaching qualifications, refereeing qualifications, and more.

 

About the Programs

Lymm Squash currently runs frequent 6 week development programs on Saturday mornings, for separate age groups:

  • Mini’s 5 to 11 Years
  • Junior’s 12 to 17 Years

Each program begins by gauging the ability of each player before splitting into groups based on age/ability.  The program aims to develop the skills and technical ability of each child, culminating in fun games and competitions at the end of each program with prizes given to all children.

Programs are broken down into 6 week chunks for the convenience of children and parents but we hope that children will re-enrol onto subsequent programs to continue their development.
