Squash Girls Can Coach Development Programme
What is it?
The programme aims to increase the number of active female coaches through subsidised coaching courses. Those who attend one of the subsidised courses will deliver female-only squash sessions in return for the funding, and will have the opportunity to receive support and guidance to assist their development.
We offer the following subsidised courses:
- England Squash Participation Award (Lvl 1) - £75 (usual price £150)
- England Squash Club Coach Award (Lvl 2) - £130 (usual price £260)
How to apply
- Find a course you'd like to attend on our website.
- Use the online form to apply for a subsidised place.
- You will be informed whether your application has been successful no less than 3 weeks prior to the course start date.
