Coaches require the skills, experience and qualifications relevant to the level of players they work with. Whether you are coaching beginners, giving your playing partners some tips, leading a group, running a programme, working with elite athletes or simply wanting some information to help your own game, you can progress your own development through the Coaching Pathway, which has clearly defined areas for coaches to become experts in their chosen coaching community.
Through CoachForce, Squash BOP provides coaches with opportunities to attend modules from the National Coach Development Framework to develop their coaching, expand their squash knowledge and gain national qualifications.
