Elite Junior Boys & Girls Squads

These training squads are chosen by the Squash New Zealand Junior Selectors based on a combination of results and potential.

Squad Goals

The major goals of this squad are:

  • To prepare players for World Junior Championships
  • To encourage players to launch careers as full time squash players
  • To develop their game technically and tactically
  • To develop their physical capacity to compete at international level
  • To educate players about the lifestyle, mental and emotional demands of international squash.

Players will be given individual programmes and specific individual goals will be determined between their Squad Coach, Contracted National Junior Coaches, Strength and Conditioning Coach and players.  

If it is considered that a player is not putting in the required effort to reach and/or maintain the standards stated for squad membership, they will be told they are no longer a member of the squad. There are four areas of consideration which are fully explained in the Selection Policy Document:

  • Skills
  • Fitness
  • Movement
  • Values of players
