The Squash BC High Performance Program aims to support our province’s top junior athletes with competitive training and development opportunities, including programming, camps, and access to high-quality coaching. The program is guided by our Provincial High Performance Coach and administered by our office team.
Squash BC works collaboratively with Squash Canada to ensure our high performance athletes have competitive opportunities at the National and International scale. Learn more about Squash Canada’s National Squad Program.
New High Performance Program
