How to keep new members keen

New Members Keen

Helping new people to stay is a challenge for many clubs. Findings show that a gradual and staged acclimatisation programme for those who are new to squash is the key to overcoming early drop-out rates. The secret to looking after new members is to keep their confidence high:

  • Frequency before intensity. It’s important to just get people into the habit of playing.
  • Allow them to manage both the duration and intensity of their participation. Trying anything new can be intimidating and the key to success is to start slow.
  • Celebrate the immediate wins - increased energy levels, feeling more positive, or the endorphin high you get straight after a match.

Combining these three tips with the SquashStart coaching resources and accompanying modules will help increase people’s confidence and help them reach a stage where squash is a permanent feature in their lives. Instil confidence, give people control and celebrate every small step of their journey towards loving squash. Find out more
