Check out the Squash BC Calendar for future Junior Pathway events near you!

The Bentall Centre Athletic Club in downtown Vancouver is looking to expand the junior program and is now opening up the program to children of non-club members. The junior program is currently in it's early stages and has two age groups meeting once per week (Sunday afternoons); Ages 8-11 run from 3-4pm and ages 12-17 go from 4-5pm. If you have a child (or children) that you would like to get involved in squash but your local club does not have a junior program, please email Andrew at Andrew.lynn@ivanhoecambridge.com  to inquire.
