Women's Squash Week - September 15-22, 2018!
Celebrate Women's Squash in September with a club event!
Squash BC is proud to be hosting the province wide annual Women's Squash Week event September 15-22, 2018.
Women's Squash Week is to promote social play to inspire women to reconnect on the court and off. Through Women's Squash Week our aim is to help clubs increase membership, improve member engagement, increase lessons and participation in leagues, tournaments and other events and overall sustain squash at your club and in BC.
A toolkit with loads of ideas for events for hosting and promoting a Women's Squash Week event is being mailed to all clubs
Promoting Women's Squash in Your Community
The tool kits will include a registration form for participating that will enable Squash BC to promote a club's event(s) on the website and in your direct community through media
Pick a Female Champion in your Community
Squash BC is suggesting that club pros pick a Female Champion to help plan and promote your Women's Squash Week event. This female member of your club should be a key person that can help support you in planning by recruiting volunteers, promoting and participating in your club's event(s).
Dates to Remember:
August 15: Select your Champion and Register your event with Squash BC
August 15 - September 15: Promote your events and recruit volunteers
September 15 - 22: Host your Women's Squash Week Events
Officials... "Make it Official"
In preparation for the coming season, we will need referees from our squash community to ensure our competitions are played fairly, safely and in the positive spirit that we have all come to enjoy.
A few years ago, Squash Canada went through an officials' program (singles), database and website update which resulted in a mis-match between Squash BC's listed officials and those registered in the "official" Squash Canada Officials database. The database and website are maintained by Squash Canada and helps streamline the management of the officiating certification program.
To get back in alignment, we ask all certified officials to make their certification "official" by registering onto Squash Canada's Officials database:
