PLAY ON A TEAM

Uniforms:

Staples Squash teams provide team uniforms (shirt and shorts) for all players. The uniform should be worn to all matches. Teams will also provide the opportunity for players to purchase their own uniforms (entirely optional and will be discussed at parent meeting).

Logowear:

Staples Squash Captains will work with Squash Parent Managers to select logwear items. The link to purchase these items will shared with parents and players.

Referee Tutorial:

Friday, Dec-01, 4:30pm-5:15pm at INTENSITYAfter each match is completed, the players who just competed are required to referee the subsequent match. Therefore, is critical that all players understand the rules of squash and how to score matches. US Squash offers a referee exam which can be taken through the US Squash website. This is a requirement for any tournament player but incredibly valuable for anyone participating in match play. Don’t worry, it starts with the basics and, as the kids age up, they take the next level exam. All team players should attend the December 1st session at INTENSITY to help them become better familiar with the referee and scoring process.

US Squash / ClubLocker Membership:

It’s a FairWest League requirement that all match players must be US Squash members. There is no cost to signing up your son/daughter on the US Squash website and creating a profile. Once a member and after your child begins to compete, he/she will build upon a squash rating and ranking. Go to US Squash and click on ‘Create Free Account’ located just under ‘login’. Paid accounts are ONLY necessary if your child plans to play individual US Squash accredited tournaments. The individual squash rating is important as it will establish a means for lining up the player’s matches vs other High School programs.
