b) Introduce and implement the WSF Coach Accreditation process
c) Standardise and implement coaching levels internationally
d) Conduct WSF Coaching Conferences on a biennial basis

a) Disseminate Member Nation’s resources via the WSF website
b) Identify ‘Squash Developing Nations’ with the assistance of Regional Federations
c) Assist member nations when required with squash development programmes
d) Encourage Regions to appoint part time WSF Regional development coaches
e) Develop a standard promotional package that can be used to introduce squash in schools
f) Establish a programme for sending WSF appointed coaches to developing countries
g) Conduct WSF Ambassador Programmes in developing nations
h) Conduct WSF Development Conferences on a biennial basis


The WSF Coaching Committee have been finalising core content for coaching courses so that regions and nations have base areas that need to be covered in courses they provide (adding to as they wish). Not only does this ensure that worldwide there will be assured quality in coaches taking certified courses, but for the coaches themselves, their qualifications will be recognised internationally.

They have started with Level 1, which is now completed and and available on this website; to be followed by Level 2 and Level 3 during the coming year.

Each region will cross reference the core content with their own Level 1 outline to ensure that it embraces all the topics (and others too, if desired), or simply adopt this version if they wish. Then the details can be submitted by the region to the WSF Coaching Committee so that the WSF can then offer the WSF Certified Course logo to be added to course materials and certificates as published by the regions.

Meanwhile, regions will be able to check the content of courses offered by national federations, so that if they include all the core content the regional and WSF certification can be added to them too.

Thus anybody taking and passing such a coaching qualification will have the national, regional and world certification.

Naturally, all courses must be taken by an approved instructor, and each region will maintain a list of them on their website, stating the level at which they are qualified to instruct, which would be automatically endorsed by WSF.
