Welcome to the Juniors Academy of Nicosia Squash Association
Squash is an intense fast-moving racket sport, that provides an excellent cardiovascular and aerobic workout. A complete workout in only 1 hour with the best cardio workout you can get! Squash has been recognized as the number one health and fitness sport. With SQUASH, children develop their skills, fitness, coordination, empowerment, and socialization! Through the playful training sessions, the children share fun and lively moments, developing all those elements that, as they progress, will help them achieve their personal goals.
Nicosia Squash Association runs a Junior Training Programme from September until June each year, whereas summer activities may also be offered. It is addressed to Juniors at all levels for ages 8-18, in group and/or private sessions whereas, for all Juniors who are new to the sport and wish to join, a special design program is also available.
Group sessions offers all enthusiastic and dedicated junior players an excellent opportunity to learn new skills and techniques while improving their overall squash game. This program is specially designed to provide the quality and consistency needed as they excel in the sport.
Private sessions are offered to either beginners or progressed players where they can get the maximum from their time on the court. It provides a great opportunity to work with a coach on a specific skill or even on the tactics of the sport. To make the most out of this, it should be combined with time in the court with a partner or joining a group session to practice and gain the benefit of the private session.
Junior Newcomers for our new junior players, a specially designed training program is offered, with a free week of trial and a subsidized monthly training fee for the first year. Our goal is for children to build a lifetime love of the sport and an active lifestyle by developing their skills, fitness, coordination, empowerment, and socialization, whether the player is interested in recreational or competitive squash.
All training sessions take place at "Tasos Papadopoulos-Eleftheria" sports center, at Engomi, twice a week from 16:00 and 20:00 on weekdays and from 09:00 to 13:00 on Saturday mornings.
