Become a Squash Coach

Coach Development 

Behind every great squash player is a great coach, and in Scotland, we have many coaches ranging from our level 1 coaches delivering extensive school/club programmes to our High Performance Coaches who work with regional squads and our performance programme at Oriam; Scotland’s Sports Performance Centre.

Our coaching pathway can support you to develop and progress in a coaching career, from our Level 1 qualification enabling you to coach groups of beginners, to our High Performance Coaches working with elite players.

Courses we deliver:

Scottish Squash Leaders Award

This course aims at introducing candidates to the basic skills required to support a schoolsquash programme or club programme. It will introduce candidates to our interactive schoolsquash resource which provides leaders with lots of fun games-based approaches to teaching squash. This will help individuals whether you are delivering schoolsquash or squash within a club environment.

It is a great course for young aspiring coaches or even parent volunteers.

Scottish Squash Level 1 Coaching Course

Our one-day level 1 course develops coaches to deliver squash to groups of beginners. This course is ideal if you’re an aspiring coach with limited or no experience in coaching. This course is also great for parents or squash leaders who are keen to help out with the coaching or increasing participation at your local club or facility.

Scottish Squash Level 2 Coaching Course 

The level 2 coaching course has been developed with support of our partnership with England Squash. This two-day course blended with online elements 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.

Scottish Squash Coach Licence 

Scottish Squash launched a new Coach Licence in November 2019. All coaches working within squash in Scotland are required to hold a Coach Licence.

The Coach Licence will allow regions, clubs, players and parents to be sure that all coaches are operating under the correct governance.
