OzSquash is a fun, play-based program designed to develop children’s hand-eye coordination, striking and other sporting skills essential for squash, life-long health and wellbeing.
In the Sporting Schools setting, the OzSquash program consists of four or five 45 minutes to one hour lessons that can easily be conducted by a local squash coach, and/or PE/generalist classroom teacher as part of the school curriculum.
The major objective of OzSquash is to use a ‘Learning Through Play’ philosophy to develop basic squash-specific skills and concepts as well as other important physical and cognitive skills, via fun games. Many activities within the program are adapted from the ‘Playing for Life’ approach where the major emphasis is on maximum participation, high levels of activity in a fun, inclusive and safe environment using activities that are easily changed, modified or adapted.
Sporting Schools is a great way for our state and territory affiliates to grow the number of children participating in squash in schools.
