CityView Racquet Club new Director of Squash, Charlie Johnson, a nationally recognized elite junior squash coach, is spearheading the development of one of the most exceptional junior squash programs in the New York City area. This fall, CityView is offering a Junior Development Program open to non-members -- a great way for kids to get started in squash. A second program, the Junior Elite Tournament Training Program does require CityView Jr. Membership, but this is an affordable and viable option for many families who want their kids involved at this level to play tournaments.

Junior Development Program

The Junior Development Program is designed for beginner to intermediate players and open to members and non-members alike, and will group children according to age and ability. This program will develop your child's skills by covering basic strokes and strategy, introducing light squash specific fitness training and incorporating match play to prepare for tournament level participation. Designed for juniors from 6 to 13 years old, the class will teach basic strokes, strategy and involve them in game play. Each class is one hour and will be instructed by CityView’s Director of Squash, Charlie Johnson. Cost $350/child (includes all 10 sessions).

The program begins the second week of September and is offered either in a five week session (2 days per week) or a ten-week session (on Saturdays). Please note, if you have a group already formed that would like to enroll together, CityView is open to additional days/times if available.
