Rules Clinics and Officiating Courses available in August and September

Aug. 06, 2019

Learning the Rules is an easy way to improve your Squash Game!


Squash Alberta is running an Officiating Initiative in 2019/20 with primary goals as follows: 

  1. Educate our members on the spirit and culture of squash with emphasis on sportsmanship, fair-play, respect and fun for everyone. 
  1. Improving people’s knowledge of the rules and their application will improve everyone’s enjoyment, level of play and confidence when scoring/refereeing. 


**Our pool of officials is getting smaller so hopefully we will find a few people that are interested in getting more involved as officials as well. 


Squash Alberta will be offering free clinics and courses (for all SA members) in Calgary and throughout Alberta starting in August to facilitate the process.  Watch for notification of dates and locations in future emails and/or check on Club Locker under the “Tournaments Tab” for clinic /course info and registration. 

August Courses: (available to all SA members - maximum 30 participants/session) 

Saturday August 17   @ the Glencoe Club             Officiating Certification Course   9am - 330pm 

Wednesday August 21   @ the Calgary Winter Club      Rules Clinic    6-8pm

Calgary Interclub Squash Association (CISA) is instituting an incentive program to support the initiative. 

For the 2019/20 season, CISA Interclub Teams will be awarded a 1/2 point per team member that attends/passes a rules clinic/course (up to 2 points maximum/team) as follows:
