Mission Squash is an intensive urban youth enrichment program that combines academic coaching, squash training, and community service into one all-encompassing experience for students grades 6 to 12.
The program aims to give youth from underprivileged homes the opportunity to make a better future for themselves by staying in school, graduating and aspiring to college while at the same time improving their health and fitness through the game of squash.
Urban Squash is a formula that consistently inspires underprivileged youth to excel and to make positive changes in their lives. Opportunities such as camps and tournaments are incentives that motivate students toward academic excellence. It literally takes them out of their existing environment to show them new possibilities."A sport long associated with a small subset of U.S. elite schools aims to change the lives of Houston’s urban youth." - Alistair Barnes, Mission Squash Founder and Chairman
