Squash SA Junior Interclub 2023 - 2024 Season

Squash SA in conjunction with coaches and clubs through the implementation of “Junior Coordinators” are trialling a new Junior Interclub competition in 2023/2024.

The program is designed to provide a fun team experience for beginner players and their parents to learn the rules of squash and the etiquette around the game.

Affiliated clubs that qualify for the Squash SA Junior Rebate Scheme will be eligible to enter one team each into a competition designed to bridge the gap between weekly junior training and AJST (Australian Junior Squash Tour) participation.

There will be no specific schedule outlined prior to the competition starting, however each club should aim at being involved in 3-4 “rounds” between January and June 2024.

Qualifying clubs have appointed Junior Coordinators as volunteers to coordinate rounds between clubs.  

Junior Coordinators hold a current Working With Children Clearance but do not need to be a qualified coach (ideally a parent from the club).

At the end of the year Junior Coordinators will be invited to a dinner at Squash SA’s cost to thank them for their contribution to junior squash in SA.


General information for match days:

Junior Coordinators should look to fill teams of 5-8 players. This should be agreed upon prior to the date of the round but can be flexible on the day if players are sick or absent.
Players can play extra “fill in matches” if a player from their team is absent on the match day, but no more than 1 match per player should be scheduled prior.
Players should play in order of merit when known, not necessarily in Sporty HQ (or Rev Sport) order.
Players from 0 to 500 Sporty HQ (or equivalent future Rev Sport) rating and 6 to 13 years old are able to play
All matches are best of 5 games to 11 points, players should mark and referee the match following their own with a coach or parent assisting if they struggle.
The winning team on the day is the club that wins the most games, not matches.

Cost to players:

·       Each player will be charged $5 cash per round (fill in matches for absent players will not incur an additional $5 charge).

·       All income for each team should be collected by the coordinator and will be: a. Given to the club coach if they attend the round as an honorarium b. Kept by the club as additional income to offset the cost of running their weekly junior program.

·       Each player should be encouraged to bring a small snack to share throughout the round to make the event social for players and parents. e.g., a packet of chips, a pack of fruit boxes, box of muesli bars, fruit to share.
