Squash Referee Course

February 17th, 2014

Squash Canada has restructured the entire referee certification process in the last year in an effort to make the lowest levels available to everyone. As a result the Club Referee status (formerly D Level), is now available online. The cost is $30.00 and you can simply sign up, log-on and complete the course.

Go to www.coursepark.com/squashcanada  to take the course. By doing this you help us increase the number of certified officials around the province (which helps our government funding), but more importantly helps improve the understanding we have of the game and hopefully helps everyone be better players and officials.

Tournament of Hearts

Jesters 2013 Results

November 19th, 2013

Everyone had a good tournament this year with some of our juniors playing outstandingly. Seth Harker and Stephen Messier both brought home wins in each of their respective categories while James Huvenaars, Jeremie Kalgutkar and Sarah Nesbitt all played well in their devisions. Darian Peterson, Cace and Delaney Heffernan faced tough competition playing in the main division and Simone Hipfner gained a lot of experience participating in her first tournament outside of the NWT. Coaches Ozzie Vallejos and Jeff Hipfner are very happy with all results from this weekend of play.
