CSA Names Harry Smith as Interim League Commissioner

The College Squash Association (CSA) Board of Managers announced that Harry Smith—who has served as the US Squash Senior Director of Junior Development for nearly a decade—has been named as the Interim CSA League Commissioner for the 2023-2024 season. The transition has taken effect immediately given the recent departure of CSA Executive Director & League Commissioner, David Poolman.

Smith, who played #1 for Colby College and captained their squash team in 2012, will oversee all aspects of the League Commissioner role, including pre-season rankings, coach communications, dual match coordination, conduct and compliance, coordination with the Board, and management of all championship events.

Over his decade-spanning tenure at US Squash, Smith supported the accredited tournament structure nationally with a focus on improving the tools available for tournament directors, as well as assisting with the implementation of national championships. Under Smith’s direction, US Squash implemented best practices and a renewed emphasis on sportsmanship.  Smith played a pivotal role in US Squash’s return to squash after the COVID pandemic—including the reset of junior rankings.

During this interim assignment the junior squash community may contact juniorsquash@ussquash.org should they have any specific concerns related to junior squash. The junior squash community may continue to contact tournaments@ussquash.org with junior tournament related inquiries, and rankings@ussquash.org with ranking related inquiries.

CSA leadership will be conducting a national search for a permanent Executive Director & League Commissioner to begin in spring 2024. Inquiries should be directed to careers@csasquash.com.
