Our Coaching Method
Evolving total body movement and the mind.
Our coaching method is to evolve total body movement and the mind. Total body movement encompasses all forms of movement from swing technique, court movement, body form and positioning, balance, and other athletic attributes. The mind is just as important as total body movement. This includes preparation, mindset, decision making, goal setting, successful thinking, progression planning, and many other areas.
Evolving the fundamental elements of effective total body movement, and a strong mind develops the most successful squash athlete.
Our Athlete Methods
During coaching and training sessions we teach our athletes methods to use during our three programme elements of Learn, Train, and Compete. Athletes are expected to follow our core values and ensure they have prepared properly before every time they step on court to ensure they can achieve the best possible result.
Our Core Values
Our core values are the foundation of everything we do. We expect all of our team, coaches, and athletes to uphold these values at all times. In coaching, training, competitions, and off the court these values lead us in the right direction and ensure success.
Our Programme Structure
Our programme consists of three elements. Learn, Train, and Compete.
Any athlete that wants to achieve the best level of success in their squash needs to be participating in activities in all of these three areas as each provides a different way of learning and improving, and each element being crucial in any athlete improving right through to those performing at the top level.
