Ready to become a coach?

Squash NZ is committed to supporting and developing squash coaches throughout the country.

Coaches are critical to helping squash players improve and grow their love for the sport. Anyone can become a coach. All you need is a keen interest in the game of squash, the right attitude and a willingness to work with others to learn and build a positive team environment.

What it takes to join the Squash Coaching Network

Hook up with your nearest Squash Club or regional Squash District, do some training and then take to the courts.

Step 1: Find a club

Once you have identified the club you want to coach at, contact the club or district administrator to find out what upcoming opportunities exist.

Step 2: Initial training

The coaching modules will give you the tools and techniques you need to create quality squash lessons in every class. You will receive programme manuals, DVD resources and hands-on guidance from certified and experienced coach facilitators.

Step 3: Teach

As soon as you have completed the required coaching modules you can start coaching your own classes. Congratulations! You are officially part of the 1000 strong coaching network that is changing lives throughout New Zealand.

Ongoing Development
