The Academy is a squad-based programme primarily located at the National Squash Centre in Manchester. The players will be selected and invited to attend three-day training squads held monthly throughout the year.
The players invited will fall into two categories:
- Programme-assisted players (full time) who receive financial and sports science support for a 12-month period. As such, each player will be reviewed through the year via their ranking, results and development targets.
- Non-assisted players (full-time education) who are invited to attend squads and continue their elite development while studying. Any extra support is resource dependent and will vary throughout the season.
Who it's for: The Academy programme aims to nurture England`s leading talent and provides support in making the transition from promising junior to world-class senior player.
