Double Dot Squash Director and Head Coach Jarrod van Driel has been named the 2017 Squash New Zealand Club & School Coach of the Year at the recent Squash New Zealand Annual Awards Evening at the Jet Park Hotel in Auckland.
This award is given to a coach who is working with junior and senior athletes in a club or school setting. This could include coaching individuals, junior programmes, beginner coaching, schools coaching, and graded teams. The judging criteria is based on coach development, coach activity, athlete outcomes, and the coach's impact.
Jarrod has developed himself as a coach, and the athletes he works with significantly over the past year. He continues to work closely with our Double Dot Squash Clubs to help them grow and develop and be amongst the leading squash clubs in Auckland and New Zealand.
"Thank you to Squash New Zealand for awarding me as the 2017 Club and School Coach of the Year. Thank you to everyone for your continued support and I am looking forward to an exciting year of squash ahead!" says Double Dot Squash Director and Head Coach Jarrod van Driel.
