It's been awhile since my last blog post, but I'm back today with a big announcement. I've taken a coaching job in Turks and Caicos on Providenciales starting May 1st. I imagine half of you have't heard of it so here's the wikipedia link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turks_and_Caicos_Islands
It was a difficult decision to leave my current position at St. Michaels as I have been there for 8 years and there are a number of dedicated and strong juniors. That being said, sometimes you have to do what you think is best for you and I believe that is what I'm doing with this move.
What lies ahead in Turks and Caicos and for Serious Squash? The club Graceway Sports (http://gracewaysports.com) has 2 courts and my main job will be to build up numbers in their program. I will be focusing a lot on increasing the junior development and eventually taking a team to some international tournaments.
I intend to do a lot more video analysis, blog and social media posts. Another main goal of mine will be to set up tourist packages for people who want to go to a place with beautiful beaches and also get in some high quality squash coaching.
Serious Squash will soon be stress free living on island time. I did visit for a few days in December to see what I would be getting myself into. Here are a few pics from my trip.
Good Luck, Waiting for more posts :)ReplyDelete
