What is the Level I certification?

The Level I Certification is the first level of US Squash’s coach education program focusing on entry level players and fundamentals of the game.

Who is the course for?

This course is for anyone interested in the competencies required to introduce starter players to the game of squash. The level I course focuses on group instruction, with special attention paid to lesson organization, safety and general squash coaching knowledge. The course readies a coach for the instruction of the beginner and low-intermediate level.

What will I learn?

The coaches in our squash community are critical. For squash to grow and for players to stay in the game, they need to experience enjoyment and improvement. In this course you will experience and develop the qualities associated with a positive, motivating leader.
