Stay Active has a partnership with Squash SA through Sporting Schools which means you can book us directly for your next Oz Squash program. OzSquash uses a 'learning through play' philosophy to develop basic squash specific skills and concepts as well as other important physical and cognitive skills via fun games.

Stay Active encourages all students aged 5 - 12 years to participate in at least 60 minutes of moderate to vigorous physical activity every day, to meet the minimum recommended requirements for this age group as outlined in the Australian Physical Activity and Sedentary Behaviour Guidelines. Participating in an after-school OzSquash program enables students to achieve their 60 minutes, as well as other great benefits of physical activity such as enhancement of memory, concentration, behaviour and academic achievement.

Program content:

The skills students will learn include: grips, striking, volleying and serving. Many activities within the OzSquash program are adapted from the Playing for Life approach where the major emphasis is on maximum participation, high levels of activity in a fun, inclusive and safe environment. Stay Active have a partnership with Squash SA that enables students to have access to a free “come ‘n’ try” session at an affiliated squash centre, when the school is within a 5km radius of that centre. This session would follow the completion of the Sporting Schools program and would be run by an accredited Squash Club Development Officer.

Format:

Stay Active can deliver an after-school OzSquash program ranging from 4 – 8 weeks in duration. Our maximum number of participants is 25, or 30 if there is an allocated teacher/SSO who actively assists every week. We ask that, where possible, the program is offered to an age range of children whom span across no more than three year levels (e.g. years R – 2). This allows our Children’s Sports Facilitators to design a program that is tailored to that specific age group.

Equipment:

To promote ongoing participation in sport and physical activity beyond the delivery of our programs, Stay Active endeavours to utilise any sports equipment available at the school and/or OSHC. Alternatively, we can lend our OzSquash equipment pack to your school for the duration of the program at no charge. However it is important to note that this will be discussed with the school prior to scheduling the program.

Qualification:

Stqay Active coaches have completed Squash Australia's Foundation Level Coaching course which qualifies them to run Squash programs in primary schools.
