Level 1 coach – Funding opportunities all across Staffordshire


Staffordshire Squash is looking to increase the number of coaches at clubs and venues across the county. This, we hope, will create more opportunities for juniors and adults within venues and increase participation.

With this in mind, we are offering to part fund up to 2 individuals per club/venue through their level 1 coaching. This offer is open to all Staffordshire squash venues regardless of whether they are affiliated to England Squash or not.

The England Squash level 1 coaching course is online and can be done in your own time but you’ll need to be quick to take advantage of the £120 discounted price (normally £150) as this ends on the 2nd of December.

This is a breakdown of how it would be funded –

£40 funded by Staffordshire Squash

£40 funded by club / venue

£40 funded by individual

If you have 1 or 2 individuals at your venue who you think would be interested please contact them asap. We would ask that they pay for the course up front. Once they have completed the level 1 and provided proof, Staffordshire Squash will send out the funding.

It is easy to become a squash coach. Below is more detail on the benefits of the course.
