Referee Tutorial:

Friday, Dec-01, 4:30pm-5:15pm at INTENSITY
After 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.
