Getting good coaching is fundamental to learning to play any sport effectively and
gaining maximum satisfaction.
As life becomes more competitive, coaching is essential to those who have high ambitions
or whose parents want to provide their child with a once in a lifetime opportunity.
At Debenham Squash Club we offer coaching in squash and racketball to anyone and
everyone from 5 years old.
The 2 main forms of coaching - are individual and group.
Individual (1-on-1) coaching is by far the most effective, as problems are both easier
to identify and more rapidly fixed. It is important to establish good technique at
an early age, otherwise bad habits creep in, which are much more difficult to remedy
later. Naturally, it is more expensive, but players simply will not progress to the
higher levels without it.
Group coaching has its advantages, as it allows players to partake in drills where
more than 2 players are needed, and also gives them an opportunity to play in peer
groups and observe and learn from a different viewpoint.
Coaching can be divided into 2 major categories:
Technique focuses on the process of shot execution (grip, stroke etc.)
The following are the basic shots in squash:
drive - straight and cross-court
serve & return of serve
Tactics mainly cover the dynamics of the game and start with basic do's and don'ts
and progress to more sophisticated patterns of play and shot deception. The main
movement around the court
body and racket language
patterns of play & thought processes
