Join us at the Dunlop British Junior Championships for two insightful workshops on how to support your child during their sporting journey.
Friday 1st November
Delivered by Ollie Turner, Performance Nutritionist at England Squash, this one-hour workshop sheds some light on the basics of nutrition for the aspiring squash player and presents some top tips to help fuel performance during training and competition, as well as athletic development.
Ollie consults players about their nutrition at England Squash through the English Institute of Sport (EIS). His role has become integral to the development of English players, advising and engaging with them in order to maximise their performance on the court. Ollie is currently completing a PhD with Sheffield Hallam University in collaboration with England Squash and the EIS where he will produce a body of research on how players should fuel their bodies correctly to optimise their training.

Supporting young squash players workshop
Saturday 2nd November
Parents can become such powerful forces in their child’s sporting experiences. In this 90-minute workshop delivered by award-winning lecturer Danny Massaro, gain knowledge and a crucial understanding on what it takes for parents to become winning parents and help your child become a winner on and off court. Learn why it's more useful to act as ‘coach parents’ at events but, more importantly, stronger and wiser parents for all our lasting relationships with each other and those important memories we store up as you and your children pass through these junior years.
