US Squash and the College Squash Association (CSA) have announced a series of one day regional College Squash Recruiting Showcases – the first of their kind – to be held across the country in October and November. These events, run and organized by local facilities, will provide the opportunity for high school players to play in competitive matches that can be viewed remotely by interested varsity college coaches for recruiting purposes. Registration is now available at the link below.
Each participant will receive a minimum of two match exposures per showcase. Each showcase will be live-streamed and recorded, with varsity college coaches able to access the content. In addition, all participants will be provided with a private video playlist of their matches, which can be used to support future outreach to college coaches. Matches will be live-scored through Club Locker, and will be factored in players’ US Squash ratings. To protect future player eligibility, US Squash and the CSA will communicate and enforce all recruiting rules and protocols during showcase events.
The series will be closed to high school players, with limited occupancy at each session based on governmental COVID-19 guidelines and facility regulations. Facilities must demonstrate adherence to US Squash guidelines for levels of risk mitigation in areas including but not limited to air circulation and filtration, surface sanitization, entry/exit and occupancy limits, and social distancing protocols.
Eighteen showcases have currently confirmed their participation in program, with more to be added to the calendar in the coming weeks, including in the Philadelphia area. To view the full schedule of showcases, please click here.
Registration is available on a first-come, first-served basis. The total number of players per showcase is limited based on facility guidelines and court capacity.
