Elm City Squash
Reinvigorating Squash Camp Model
Elm City Squash at Yale, directed by Yale Associate Head Coach, Pam Saunders, is constantly looking for new ways to enhance the camper experience.
First, the program offers the lowest coach to camper ratio in the market, and for the 2014 camp season, instantaneous, in-depth video analysis of all sessions will be offered.
By investing in technology such as iPads, wide angle lenses, and video breakdown software, Elm City Squash will provide players with a DVD of their coaching feedback at the end of the week.
This movement, tactical, and technical feedback can be brought home and used with other coaches or on one's own.
This summer, Elm City Squash will offer three weeks of camp, featuring 12 teaching professionals for each session. These are professional coaches, not college students, representing institutions such as Brown, Columbia, Harvard, Haverford, Penn, Vassar, and Yale.
Each week of camp has a different focus, from game tactics to training and season preparation. Players learn the science behind training and reaching their maximum potential during the long squash season.
In addition, campers can sign up for extra sessions within the week that address sport psychology, nutrition, yoga, and training concepts.
Week 1 will take place from 6/23 - 6/28
Week 2 - 7/6 - 8/11
Week 3 - 7/20 - 7/26.
