Saturday, October 18 (10-6): Essential “Tactics First” Training for Squash Coaches $149
Recent research has shown that for an open (tactical with many decisions) sport like squash a “Tactics First” approach produces smarter and more mentally tough athletes. Coaches will learn how to use a tactical model (in this course the Zone model) to develop, deliver and evaluate Tactics First training to their squash athletes. This course targets coaches working with developmental athletes (8-18) and coaches of players to a 5.0 skill level (U.S. rating system), and will include how to use Dartfish Easytag to help analyze tactics.
Sunday, October 19 (10-6): Advanced “Tactics First” Training for Squash Coaches
In this course coaches will learn how to apply a second zone tactical model (Kevin Parker/Yvon Provencal’s “Egg” Model) to designing practices and evaluating mach play, and then be guided in how to develop their own tactical model of squash. More advanced tactics and shots will be addressed, and will include how to use Dartfish Easytag to help analyze tactics. This workshop is essentially the Coaching Association of Canada’s Level 4 Performance Analysis task.
