“Building a Safe and Welcoming Environment to Attract and Retain Females in Squash” Panel Discussion
Couldn’t join us for this discussion?  Not to worry!  We’ve got you covered with a recording of the entire presentation! Join moderator Anna Kirbyson along with panelists Dara Sklar, Giselle Delgado, Sandy Reimer, and Tara Mullins as they explore how you can make your squash facility’s environment more welcoming and supportive to women and girls – giving your facility the competitive advantage.

“How to Avoid Injury” Squash Physio Tips with Jamie Sonego
A proper warm up before getting on court is so important! A dynamic warm-up can help to improve your athletic performance and also prevent injury. The purpose of a dynamic warm up is to increase blood flow to the areas which will be working and to wake up the nervous system. It should mimic movements that you will use consistently throughout the course of your upcoming activity. In the videos, Jamie Sonego, a squash player and physiotherapist in Vancouver, demonstrates some examples of different dynamic movements to help warm up the hips, the thoracic spine (upper back), and shoulders prior to getting on court! They will help get you warmed up so you can get into those deep lunges! If you have any questions for Jamie feel free to contact her at jamie@baselinewellness.ca
