Coaching is a rewarding and fun way to be involved with Squash – coaching helps improve player enjoyment as well as their performance in the game. Newcomers can be introduced to a fantastic new sport that will keep them fit and healthy for life. Full time professional coaching is also financially rewarding if organised well – and it can provide a good business with flexible hours and good holidays.
Are you interested in Coaching Squash in your club or community? Are you an existing coach with a previous qualification? Are you a competent Squash Player? If you feel you would like to work with beginners and club players as a Squash Coach – Irish Squash run a number of coach development programs that train you to become a professional squash coach.
It is a requirement of Irish Squash and WSF that candidates who wish to attend the WSF Level 2 course must first complete the WSF Level 1 programme. Full details about these courses can be found HERE under ‘Coach/Dev’.
Irish Squash courses are supported by the World Squash Federation and delivered by WSF and Coaching Ireland certified tutors. The courses certified by Coaching Ireland fit on the Irish and European coach education framework. Information about the Coaching Development Programme for Ireland (CDPI) can be found HERE on the Coaching Ireland website.
As with all Coaching Qualifications – on successful course completion you will be required to complete a vetting procedure and complete the Ethics in Sports course in order to become a registered coach. All potential participants for courses need to be members of Irish Squash to apply for a place.
