Squash is often referred to as physical chess and in most cases, the player focuses on the physical side 100% not considering that if they were to take time out from all the court lengths and look at strengthening their mental approach this would accelerate their development.

This course of workshops gives the junior player an introduction into developing their mental strength by discussing ways to handle pressure, build confidence, motivate themselves, and how to use mental imagery techniques to enhance their performance.

 Kent’s SDO Steve Franks uses his findings from the High-Performance Award and his life experiences to help the junior to start to think about how they can become mentally stronger on and off-court.

 Please contact Steve on elsteveo969@hotmail.co.uk to arrange a workshop for your junior.
