Essentials for Schools

OzSquash Logo

OzSquash uses a ‘learning through play’ philosophy to develop basic squash specific skills and concepts as well as other important physical and cognitive skills via fun games. Many activities within the program are adapted from the ‘Playing for Life’ approach where the major emphasis is on maximum participation, high levels of activity in a fun, inclusive and safe environment using activities that are easily changed, modified or adapted.
