Shine as a Squash Stars Provider or Leader

As a Squash Stars Provider or Leader, you will introduce squash to children and unlock a galaxy of fun activities and games.

It is also a great way to earn while positively influencing children to join our many squash clubs.

A Squash Stars Provider is an organisation that is recognised by SqA as an “Endorsed Provider” in Sporting Schools. Each provider may engage in booking a Squash Stars program with a school and engage a Squash Stars Leader linked to their organisation to facilitate program delivery.

Squash Stars Leaders are a very important part of the Squash Stars program. Linked to a Squash Stars Provider or as an individual, they lead our Squash Stars sessions, building a love for physical activity, being active and having fun at the same time!

Becoming a Squash Stars Leader is a rewarding experience, allowing individuals to make a meaningful contribution to their community.

  • Leaders are there to introduce children to squash with positive and supportive encouragement.
  • Squash Stars is all about fun, so our Leaders need to embody this and create opportunities for children to enjoy both structured and free play.
  • The focus is on improvement rather than ‘winning’ and all children should receive equal time and attention.

Anyone can be a Squash Stars Endorsed Leader, there is no need for squash experience or to be an experienced coach.

The Squash Stars program is simple and fun to deliver with groups of children. The tailored online training programs will equip any Leader with the squash knowledge and the group management knowledge to be an awesome Leader!

Only Leaders who have completed the required training will be linked to a Squash Stars program.
