27. HIGH PERFORMANCE CAMP 17-20 March 2023

December 23, 2020 Uncategorized 0

We are very excited to be hosting some of the top juniors in the country as they descend into Pretoria for a squash experience of a life time. UK based, world class coach – HADRIAN STIFF – will be the head coach at the National High Performance Camp, and all the invited players will get on court coaching and mentoring from Mohammed el Shorbagy and Joelle King’s coach. Players between the ages of 12 – 18 will train in their skills level groups to ensure that every player gets the best possible training regardless of age.

USA based and South African World renowned sports motivational speaker – Allistair McCaw – will also be part of the camp with regular sessions via an online link. The focus will be “being champion minded”, while Nicki de Villiers – herself an ex Protea basketball player, will assist with guiding the players to “eat like a champion”. The senior players will do a question and answer session with Nicki.

The on court sessions will vary from low to high intensity, according to the level planned for the day – and players will experience both a “sharpening up” of their skill while laying a strong foundation for the rest of the season ahead.
Having a different training partner at each session adds to the value as players need to adjust to a different opponent in every match they play.

The coaching staff are all highly qualified SquashSA coaches and have many years of experience running these camps.

Menanto Malan is a qualified Biokineticist and will do a fitness evaluation on each of the players. This info will be valuable in taking forward, as players will have something to work with once at home.

We look forward to having the players fly-in on Friday 17 March 2023, and enjoying four days of squash, squash and more high quality squash.
