Coaching Education

The Saskatchewan Racquetball Association is committed to excellence, whether you are coaching those who are first-time players or those who compete at the elite international level. We work in partnership with Racquetball Canada and the Coaches Association of Saskatchewan (CAS) to provide coach education and development opportunities that fit the needs of our coaches, using the programs and resources developed by Racquetball Canada and the Coaching Association of Canada (CAC).

Racquetball Canada has developed coaching education program links directly to our Long Term Athlete Development Plan (LTAD) and provides coaches with the right knowledge and skills to help all athletes develop to their potential .
