England Development Programme (EDP) players on court

England Development Programme (EDP)

The EDP develops players with potential and helps them to make the transition into the England Academy with the ultimate aim of developing world-class senior players. It’s a focused talent environment, where players are dedicated and driven to be the best squash players they can possibly be. The EDP is split into two levels: EDP and EDP Potential.

The programme is focused on the development of a player’s game, but also the foundations of physical conditioning and psychological and lifestyle traits that are key to becoming successful world-class athletes.

  • The EDP has 24 England Squash contact days. Players on this programme will come together for intense training days on a regular basis. Attendance at training camps is paramount for continued development on the programme.
  • To supplement the training camps, there is an expectation that players will commit to the training and education required of them outside of the programme whilst they are in their home environments.
  • Players will be educated on all performance parameters alongside technical and tactical development through practice and video analysis. We will provide some additional top up coaching at relevant periods of the year to support the player outside of the central contact days. Training will be monitored and development will be tracked by using an individual player development plan.
