Squash & Racquetball Victoria has established a staged pathway for aspiring squash athletes to assist individuals to reach their highest possible potential in the sport. A two tier pathway (see below) offers opportunities for players from junior to sub-elite. 

All programs are designed to complement the work being done with the athlete’s personal coach and are seen as additional training opportunities not preferred coaching. Applications are invited in November for the Squash Vic Academy (SVA) and for the Talent Development Squad December-January.
