Learn More about the Programs

The Specter Center Junior Program offers year-round lessons, clinics, and camps for kids aged 5-18. See below the three juniors program pathways we offer for the 2021-2022 squash season and don’t hesitate to reach out to our Squash Director if you have questions about the right program for you. <Br>

All of our junior programs are designed with the long-term health, happiness, and success of each athlete in mind. Based on the age and stage of development of the group there will be different technical, tactical, physical, and mental components incorporated into clinics. Sessions are designed to push players towards the edge of their comfort zone and make progress week over week.

*Players will be split into groups with practice partners of a similar age and stage of development as best as possible* We encourage you to email our coaching staff to help place you in a clinic that is right for you!

Active Start – Our Active Start program is designed for children under the age of 11 who are looking to discover the joy of the sport and learn everything new about squash. The Active Start program will allow your child to learn the proper techniques of the swing, movement, and some fun fitness programs all in a one-hour clinic.

Train to Compete – Our Train to Compete program is designed primarily for the development of our intermediate level players who are ready to learn more about the game in a competitive and strategic way. These players will also have the opportunity to start to incorporate a strength and conditioning program into their schedule. US Squash’s National Team Strengthening and Conditioning coach, Brigita Roemer, will be offering sessions designed for the development of a squash player this fall.

Compete to Win – Our Compete to win program is designed primarily for the development of our high-performance athletes seeking to take their game to another level and are looking to train as a professional and playing squash at the collegiate level.  These players will also have the opportunity to start to incorporate a strength and conditioning program into their schedule. US Squash’s National Team Strengthening and Conditioning coach, Brigita Roemer, will be offering sessions designed for the development of a squash player this fall.

Strength & Conditioning (for Train to Compete & Compete to Win) The strength and conditioning program will be led by our National Team S&C head coach Brigit Roemer twice a week, and is designed to suit players at the intermediate level and the High performance level who are willing and eager to develop and take their game to the next level. We are excited to start working with our players in a professional way and use all the technology and experience available for the development of our junior players to make it an enjoyable and exciting journey for our players.
