Pre-Season Lessons for H.S. Students – Fall 2018

The U.S. High School Squash season is very short – November to March – about 12 weeks of actual squash – not enough coaching to develop into a complete, skillful player.


Former Canadian Junior National Coach Tim Bacon is an expert on the science of developing junior players.  In addition to coaching top Canadians including Jonathon Power and Graham Ryding, who went on the become World #1 and #9 respectively, he has worked as a Sport Scientist with most of the top U.S. juniors at the Princeton Squash Camps since 1987.

Tim coaches using the latest LTAD models and Sports Pedagogy  systems such as Decision Training and the Games Approach to make lessons fun and ensure a player’s optimal development.



Individual or small group (3-4 players) lessons and training are available in both Connecticut and Western Massachusetts:

  • Wesleyan University or  within a 30-minute radius ($25 travel fee)
  • At your school squash facility within a 30-minute radius of Northampton, MA
