City Squash
Enabling New York City youth to fulfill their academic,
athletic and personal potential.


CitySquash’s selection process is competitive. We take great care when selecting students to participate in our program. Because we invest so much time and so many resources in each of our participants, we host rigorous tryouts each year and make selections based on who we believe will be able to make the most of the CitySquash experience. For every spot in our program, approximately eight students try out. The tryout process, which begins in third grade for elementary schoolers and sixth grade for middle schoolers, lasts several months and involves academic testing, teacher meetings, squash instruction, student interviews and more. Selections are based on attitude, work ethic, athletic ability, enjoyment of squash, teacher references, academic standing and commitment level.
