2020 Learning Plan

Another year gone by and an opportune time to review my learning plan. I plan to stay away from courses to keep my weekends free for the kids but I am in a good habit of reading most mornings of the week.

Why I need an early wake up

Thanks to different jobs and spurts of motivation I have gotten up around 5am, on and off for about 10 years. Yet it wasn't until our second winter with Danny that I finally committed to making it a true habit. I fell out of the routine and on most mornings Danny would wake us up between 5.30 and 6am.

My thoughts on improving flexibility for your sport.

Each sport has unique demands. Certain sports require greater strength, rugby, while others more flexibility, gymnastics.  As you take stock of your abilities and assess your training needs you may find you lack in certain areas. I am strong advocate for leveraging coaches, they can help identify weaknesses in your game and a strength coach or physio can help you develop them (this is of course skills that are not tactical / skill based - [...]

Growing our sport

Just a few weeks ago, while the snow blustered outside the VRC, we revved up, engaged and had 20 high school students sweating in their first introduction to squash. Imagine an opportunity to inspire youth to be healthy through your own sport. Imagine building a bigger and more inclusive community around squash. I think these two statements can become a reality but it will require a belief in our sport of squash. According to Squash [...]
