Video Assessment Analysis – We provide squash assessments utilizing the professional motion analysis software. With the cooperative efforts between our PT staff and our elite level squash coaches on site, we have the ability to clearly and effectively walk you through a video analysis of your desired stroke/strokes, allowing coach and client to closely analyze any inefficiency in technique. A dual view of your pre-correction and post-correction video will provide you with biomechanical insight, which will be used to compare noticeable improvement in technique and form.
Along with improving performance, we also use this assessment as a preventative and corrective measure in regards to injury. The more efficient your technique, the less you prone you are to sport related injury. This could potentially alleviate any existing injury or discomfort due to squash play.
At its core, the program strives to build confidence and self-esteem and provide opportunities for personal development and college admission. The program includes mentoring and a community service aspects.
We have a 501c3 set up, identified 3 possible venues in DC, one of which is a massive school/ community center redevelopment and another that could fit two courts – both close to target population so transport will not be an issue. If you would like to be involved in discussing and developing an urban youth squash program please contact Connie Barnes at email@example.com
Just when you thought things were maybe getting a little weird working in the squash world, along comes a member that erases that last little bit of doubt. Worldgate’s Bill Ho sent me an email with this picture of his office. No Bill isn’t moonlighting selling racquets, he just can’t bear to part with his dead ones…. I will let Bill explain.
It’s my office. I came to collect broken racquets when I couldn’t part with favorite racquets that I broke. Then as I had an office with empty walls, I put these racquets up. Of course it spurred conversation in the workplace. Then as my squash colleagues broke their racquets I asked for them to add to cover the other bare walls. The long and short of it, I started in 2003 and I think I have over 20. I have not been actively seeking them lately though.
I think we need to help him out..send your broken racquet to AussieNick and we will make sure that nasty bare space is covered! When it is we will post again!
