Urban Squash Cleveland is excited to begin its third year of programming this fall.
Urban Squash Cleveland is a youth enrichment after-school program for inner city Cleveland youth. Urban Squash Cleveland combines academic instruction and support, instruction in the sport of squash with community service, as well as providing mentoring and life skills to impact the lives of middle school children in Cleveland.
Urban Squash Cleveland partners with Entrepreneurship Preparatory School, Cleveland State University, and Case Western Reserve University. Urban Squash Cleveland works closely with Entrepreneurship Preparatory School to identify students in the 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grades to be enrolled in the Urban Squash Cleveland Program. Students are chosen to be part of the team through a tryout and selection process based largely on attitude, effort and commitment.
After school practices and events occur at the Cleveland State University's Recreation Center and at the Case Western Reserve University's Veale Athletic Center.
Students who participate in Urban Squash Cleveland practice three days a week:
Monday from 4:00-6:30 P.M. (7th/8th grade)
Tuesday from 4:00-6:30 P.M. (5th/6th grade)
Wednesday from 4:00-6:30 P.M. (7th/8th grade)
Thursday from 4:00-6:30 P.M. (5th/6th grade)
Friday from 4:00-6:30 (alternating teams)
