Alert

No Late Start for MS and US - Wednesday, February 1

In view of the lost instructional day Monday, the Middle and Upper Schools will run block schedules through the end of the week (C, D, E, and F rotations). This calendar change means that, except in the Lower School, we will NOT run a late-start Wednesday schedule on February 1. Lower School will still have a late start. Middle and Upper School classes will begin promptly at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, February 1.

Overview

At the JV Level, many squash athletes are driven to move up and earn a coveted Varsity Squash letter. Quite often, the “bottom rung” of the Varsity challenge ladder is within reach of these talented players and frustration is often concordantly high. Strong encouragement and coaching in managing expectations, devoting time to practice and in losing and winning gracefully is crucial.

Athletes usually want specific feedback and instruction on the finer points of their individual game and often see the individual before the team at this level, so nurturing an attitude of “team first, individual second” is essential. Creating camaraderie between players, respect for the game, the coaches, the referees and finessing “game-specific” scenarios supersedes individual game scores in JV.

The JV level team is comprised of 20 players (10 female, 10 male), and most competition is with other area high school Varsity teams. Each season, the JV team makes a trip to Chicago to compete against Chicago-area high school programs.
