Cincinnati Squash Academy (AS)

Squash is the hook.
Education is the heart.
Grade levels: 4-6
Purpose:

Cincinnati Squash Academy (CSA) is the city’s only urban squash organization that uses the disciplined game of squash to help transform talented students in under-served communities into scholar-athletes, productive citizens and future leaders with character on the path to and through college.  Activities focus on 4 pillars: Squash + Education + Cultural Exposure + Community Service.

From http://www.squashacademy.org:

For urban squash students, the program is an intensive, year-round commitment. Each student will have a minimum of two weekday afternoon ‘practices’ a week which includes one hour of squash practice and one hour of academic tutoring. Each student will also have a weekend practice that will mix squash, character development, cultural exposure, community service, and academic prep.

Over the course of the school year, our students will receive more than 200 hours of supervised academic and supervised squash instruction, plus at least 10 hours of community service and summer programming. Students are matched with adult mentors who will serve as role models and travel to squash tournaments.

Months: Tryouts are in January then the program runs all year round.
