Squash Summer camps are a great way to develop young squash players who can outplay, outlast and outperform the competition! Camps are appropriate for players of all skills and ages. This year, we are pleased to announce overnight camps at Mercersburg Academy featuring guest coaches!
All of our camps include training in the key elements of squash excellence:
- Technical Skill — stroke and movement mechanics
- Tactics — building shot sequences and patterns in order to execute match strategy
- Performance — building speed, strength and agility on court.
- Mindset — managing emotions, building a ‘grit’ mindset, establishing preparation for performance
- Match Strategy — Identifying opponents strengths, weaknesses and style of play. Developing strategies for setting the tone in a match, and responding to opponents play.
Players will be divided by skill, as appropriate, and areas of focus will shift, based on strengths of each player.
Day Summer Camps
Camps run in three sessions: 10 am – noon, noon-2pm and 2pm-4 pm. Campers can do 1, 2 or 3 sessions per day. Full day campers receive a discount, and are provided lunch.
Day camps are best suited for players who aspire to win at the silver level of play, or to be on a school team in the fall.

Assistant coaches return to the summer camps providing fitness training, drills to drive consistency, and match play experience.

Student: coach ratio 4:1
Campers will need to have their own non-marking shoes and protective eye wear for camp. Racquets will be provided to players who do not have one, but the coaching staff recommends that campers purchase a racquet if they intend to play squash beyond their camp experience.
