Coaching Staff

Damon has experience at the very highest level of coaching and training in the sport, and works with a number of the world’s lehttps://www.penncharter.com/uploaded/summer_camp/1.29.13_pcsquash_058_0358_lo.jpgading players, including the former World #1 and current World #17 and #19 ranked players. In addition, he coaches many of the top-ranked junior players in the country, including the current girls U17 #1.

Program Highlights
Squash Camp is intended for a wide range of players, from relatively new players with a little experience in the sport, to intermediate and school team players looking to further develop their game. The camp will cover all aspects of squash, including skills-based work to develop a strong foundation in technique, conditioned games to help explore the tactical elements of the game, and match play to bring it all together! In addition, we will look at physical training for squash, including movement, agility and strength through a range of conditioning activities and movement-based games. Our aim is to provide each player with a fabulous experience of the game in a challenging, innovative and fun environment! The camp will take place in the Penn Charter Kline & Specter Squash Center, an air-conditioned facility with seven glass-back international courts.
