Army Squash Coaching Strategy

Work continues in developing the Army Squash Coaching Strategy and for this we need to recruit and qualify coaches at all levels.  AS Sec will be compiling a database of current coaches and a list of all those wanting to become a Squash Coach.  For those already qualified you should have seen the ‘COVID-19 Update for Coaches’ from the CEO England Squash.  Whilst the primary concern of England Squash is for those civilian self-employed squash coaches, there are useful links to the dedicated coaching web page, the introduction of coaching webinars and a series of squash coaching session plans.  For those whose qualification may have expired and for those interested in becoming a squash coach here is the  COVID-19 update for coaches link to whet the whistle.  Anyone serving who is interested in becoming a Squash Coach or is already qualified contact the Sec at dcampey@ascb.uk.com and we will endeavour to fund and get you on a course as soon as COVID restrictions allow.

The new Army Squash Coaching Strategy is available here

Activities and courses will commence once allowed back on the court.  In the meantime Corps Squash reps are to provide name and contact email for all current squash coaches to the Permanent Secretary

All AS Event Organisers are to ensure that they have carried out a full Risk Assessment prior to an event and have a signed copy of the new AF 5010 displayed in a prominent position during the event.  They are also to carry out a dynamic risk assessment immediately prior to the event and any additional risks are to be annotated on the form 5010.   This RA compliments the mandatory safety briefing that should also be carried out prior to an event starting.
