2017 J/K & Colts Training Squads Announced

At the conclusion last Friday of the WP Closed Tournament, where Rodney Durbach and Alex Fuller were crowned 2017 champions, the Jarvis & Kaplan and Colts training squads were announced.

Women's Squad

Karen Blom; Liesl Claxton; Zoe Durbach; Alex Fuller; Hannah Knight; Nele Gilis (NZ); Katie Mayhew; Demi Steenkamp; Shanna Swart; Lara Valstar; Gill van Vlaanderen; Barbara Vintcent & Sacha West.

Men's Squad

Antonio Bruni; Paul Coll (NZ); Murray Commins; Owen de Jager; Rodney Durbach; Jason Elley; Aubrey Lawrence; Shaun le Roux; Mighael Lombard; Jon-Ross Malloch; Thean Toerien; JoJo Shean; Rowan Smith; Jarred T-Cupido; JP vd Merwe & Justin vd Poel.

Neil Oosthuizen was also invited, but he has indicated his unavailability for this year. Furthermore, at least two of the above have been 'earmarked' to captain the Colts team, although only one will be chosen.

Colts

Cameron Arries; Ethan Brink; Joffvre Duminy; Johan Koegelenberg; Matthew Lambrick; Luthando Mathebula; Dean Nortier; Stefan Ranoszek; Emil Snyman; Nathan vd Westhuysen; Luke van Vuuren & Glenn Yates.

A few of the players above have indicated they won't be available for Jarvis. Nevertheless, the selectors felt we would like to invite them to training, in order to firstly recognise their achievements on the court this year, as well as giving them exposure to higher levels of training with senior players.

 
HOW IMPORTANT IS THE "COOL-DOWN"?

(Article copied from "Squashskills.com" - 11th Feb 2015)

For the diligent squash player, the cool-down (or warm-down) has long been as much an integral part of training/playing as the warm-up. But while for most players the warm-up will follow the same general pattern of progressively warming and mobilising the body in preparation for exercise, there is usually seen a far higher degree of variance in cool-down routines. Similarly, whilst the benefits of a properly constructed warm-up are fairly well established and understood, you’ll hear a far wider variety of perceived reasons for the presumed necessity of going through a cool-down routine post-exercise. So just how strong is the research support for the cool-down, and if we are going to go through a cool-down routine, what exactly should we be doing?

EARLY STAGE DEVELOPMENT FOR JUNIORS

Should your child specialise in a sport? Or play a multitude of them? Read here a blog by Gary Nisbet, a professional fitness and conditioning expert with "Squashskills" what the current thinking is! Also follow his blog at 'squashskills.com/blog'...

For those that coach juniors, or have children of their own that are keen squash players, the question often comes up of ‘How soon should my child specialise in just the one sport’? It’s a difficult one, with lots of factors to consider, and it can often be very difficult to give a categorical answer.

SHOULD WE DO AWAY WITH "YES LET?"

OR START BEHAVING ON COURT?


Towards the end of 2013, PSA CEO, Alex Gough was in hot water for apparently using some rather 'flowery' language, directed at the volunteer referee presiding over his match. He apparently called the ref a "%$#ing wanker" for calling "yes let". Gough then told the referee that he was the reason that squash was not in the Olympics (for calling so many lets). (For the full article, see the 'Squash Ezine' edition dated 14 November.)

NEW SQUASH RULES EFFECTIVE 1st JANUARY 2014

The current squash rules have been in effect since 2001. Since then, there have been only two changes:- the major one being the move from a “hand-in hand-out” scoring system to the ‘Point-a-Rally’ (PAR); and a minor one stating that the “tin” includes “board.”

A working group was established, primarily to simplify the language, and make the rules more “user-friendly” through a more logical structure. At the WSF AGM in October, the changes were ratified and will come into effect from 1st January 2014. Although no major changes have
