Our Top 3 Tips For Getting Recruited In This Sport

  1. Most squash teams are either Ivy League schools or small DIII colleges, so athletic scholarships are prohibited—this means you will need to be at or very close to the academic threshold to be admitted and play squash in college. Grades come first!
  2. Play in top events such as, World Juniors, British Junior Open, Canadian Junior Open, Dutch Junior Open and alert college coaches so they can watch or stream your matches.
  3. When you’ve narrowed down your list a bit, specifically ask coaches about their admissions process and how they can support you with your application.
