Squash Club at EA
The Squash Club at EA is relaunching programming! A brand new performance pyramid (below) for all K-12 student-athletes will offer a systematic pathway to assist the development process. The methodology will inspire all aspirational squash players to evolve from learning to play in Lower School, tailoring periodized programming toward training to compete for Middle/Upper School elite performers.
Options are available for one day per week, through to a full-time, six days per week training program. Champions will be created on and off court, by teaching students how to set and achieve their goals, so drEAms can come true!
The four programs on offer within the tiered pyramid are Lower School Clinics (fall and spring) directed by Demer Holleran; Future Stars (fall and spring only), Talent Squad and EA-cellence Academy (12 months of the year) directed by Lyall Paterson. Individual lessons are also offered on a private, semi-private (2-3) or try-vate (small groups of 3-4 for first timers) basis for juniors and adults.
All squash programming is held in the Madeira Squash Pavilion at The Episcopal Academy.
Lyall hails from Scotland, where he is a 6x National Junior Champion and has represented his country at European, World, and Commonwealth Championships.
