Coaching (Draft)

Would you like some help to improve your squash or racketball?
If you would like some coaching to improve your game, FOS&RC have a number of members that are also independent qualified ESR squash and racketball coaches. Coaches can help you develop and improve your game in either individual or group sessions.  Members can find out the rates charged by contacting the coach directly using the contact details opposite.

Coaching is a private agreement between the member coach and the player seeking coaching. 

Fair Oak do not currently have official appointed coaches working on behalf of the club.  The only official coaching session is the junior sessions on Saturday mornings which are supported by the club by the provision of free courts. On occasions there may be special club events which may involve free coaching.

The full club policy on coaching can also be seen at the bottom of the page. 

England Squash and Racketball (ES&R) publish recommended minimum rates for coaching which can be seen at the bottom of the page. Please note these rates may not be what the coach will charge and relate to 'per hour' therefore our normal 40 minutes sessions will be less than the stated rates. When approaching any coach please ask exactly what the coaching fees are including any light fees. 

Please note that coaches are now asked to make a small contribution per court (£1 peak / 63p off peak) back into club funds in return for operating their business at the club.

It is the members responsibility to ensure that any information shown on this page or on any club notice board is current and up to date.
It is not mandatory for coaches to hold an ES&R licence.
