Level 2 Coaching Course

The level 2 coaching course has been developed with support of our partnership with England Squash. The three-day course enables coaches to learn the skills to coach both individual and group lessons. This course allows candidates to develop the skills required to deliver the technical and tactical requirements of squash to juniors and adults at beginner and intermediate level.

Candidates will learn how to analyse player’s needs, plan for a series of lessons and to operate as a Club Coach.

WHAT CANDIDATES HAVE TO SAY

“I thoroughly enjoyed this course, it was a great learning experience that encouraged me to completely refocus on what I was trying to achieve in a lesson and how I then delivered this. The course helped me to improve my planning and the content of my own lessons by developing a structured format based on key focus points. The course conent was excellent and delivered in a relaxed environment with cheesy jokes thrown in for good measure – I highly recommend attending this course!
