NCA is heading to Amherst for a 4th year! Players will be able to experience sporting life on a college campus while receiving world class coaching. NCA training blends squash and mental conditioning with an emphasis on verbal and personal reflection alongside goal setting. Each player will return home with a notebook filled with technical coaching points, what worked and didn’t work well for them, and goals for the remainder of the summer and season ahead.

Intense training & play will be had on court - technical, tactical, 1-1, group training & match play will lay the groundwork for improvement. Each day is themed to a different area of the game. An inner-camp tournament will take place during the weekend. Fitness will incorporate resistance band training, technical movement practice, and Yoga. 

Off-court in the evenings are various fun activities - movies, soccer, squash, volleyball, ropes course, BBQ & hanging out on campus/in town. We also head to a beautiful lake beach once a week!

The Amherst Camp is best suited for players aged 14+. Please note that financial assistance and sibling discounts are available. To request a single week please email us. To request a day camp rate please email us. Thank you!

FAQ: What is the difference between the 14+ College Squash Experience camp and the 14+ Intensive Technical Camp?

College Squash Experience: this camp is led by current college coaches, and each day is run like a college squash practice. This camp’s focus is on meeting the coaches and learning about their college programs, get a feel for college squash structure, and play. This camp is a great fit for a player who is touring college camps to meet coaches/be seen by coaches, and can only fit in a week of camp at a time. Week 1 is represented by Amherst and Trinity, Week 2 Amherst, Trinity and Middlebury.

14+ 2-week intensive w/Peter: this camp draws a competitive group of players who's focus is to really improve. It's an intense but also a really fun camp led by highly technical coaches. We get deep into goal setting, mental strategy, and cover the college squash recruitment process. Only Amherst coaches are represented at this camp.
