Squash Box League
The fall leagues wrap up in the next two weeks.
If you would like to play in the winter league starting in January 2018, let us know - you can play on a team every week or put your name on the sub list. Players are ranked, and play a match each week against players more or less at their own level. All levels welcome!
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up or for more information.
The box league is a good option for players who can't play regularly in the weekly league, and also for anyone who wants to get an extra game in here and there. Players are placed into groups (boxes) of 4-6 players. At the end of each session (usually monthly), the top 1-2 players move up, the bottom 1-2 move down, and the middle players remain in place.
You can check out the box league here
, and if you are interested in playing, send us an email at email@example.com
If you are a student interested in playing on the weekend, to have a lesson or just hit the ball around, email firstname.lastname@example.org
or text 250-314-9600 and we'll set it up. Gear and coaching provided as needed by the KSA (at no cost).
Rides from campus to the courts are available. Drop-in fees for students are $5 on weekends.
There is a facebook group set up for students who want to connect for a game, check it out here: TRU Squash Club
Free Online Ref Course!
In conjunction with Squash BC, the KSA is offering Squash Canada's Club Referee Certification Course
to local players. This course normally costs $29.99; thanks to funding from the Kamloops Blazers Sports Society (from a grant in 2015), we are able to offer this course for free.
This online course features high definition videos with slow-motion technology, plus downloadable course materials and links to additional officiating resources. Successful completion of the course will certify you as a Club Referee (the first level of certification in the Squash Canada referee system).
If you are interested in taking the course, email us at email@example.com
and we will provide the link and the code to access the course.
