Level 1 Coaching Course

Our 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.

Delivery Method: Online/Remote Learning

We realise the way in which people learn, work and engage in coach development may have changed and therefore we have adapted our level 1 course to be delivered in an online and remote format. Candidates that sign up to complete their level 1 course this way will attend four online group sessions and work with a local qualified coach on the practical elements allowing them to achieve the same qualification.

Delivery Method: Face-to-face Learning

Delivering in this form means that the course will take 1 day for candidates to complete. You will be required to attend the course on a specific day at a set location.

If you would like to enquire about holding a level at your facility/club please contact us to discuss further.
