Weekly Junior Sessions

Please check timings/durations with Richard Avery.

Junior sessions are held on Saturday mornings. Currently they run from 10:00 to 12:00.

  • 1000 - 1100 Beginners (Mini Squash)
  • 1100 - 1200 Intermediate (Improver Level)

The cost for each session will be 20.00 for members, and 25.00 for non-members for 6 sessions. Sessions will normally run for 6 contiguous weeks, with a week off between each 6 week period. As Richard is doing the coaching almost entirely on his own, there will have to be some flexibility. Coaching will run throughout the season from Sept/Oct thru to April/May time. We are also thinking about the possibility of providing some mid-week sessions.

We follow the Mini Squash, Development Player Awards and Top Player Awards that form part of the National Coaching Scheme and are a means of developing players through a programme of skill testing and development.

We have two Level 2 coaches and many helpers. We also hope to bring in some top-level coaches from time to time.

Enquiries to Richard Avery.

County Juniors

Our juniors are actively involved in the county scene. There is a logical progression through county junior training events to the county teams. Beyond that, there is the regional Area Academy and minisquads which aim to develop young players up to national standard. Two of our juniors (Clare & Thomas Heneghan) have been invited to attend the Mid West Area Academy and mini squads, and have been selected to play for the Mid West region in the Inter-Area championships.
