The 2015 UVA Junior Gold falls between the summer’s first two camp sessions, providing players the opportunity to experience residential life and squash life at UVA on either side of a tremendous summer tournament.
Residential Squash Camp at UVA Week 1 - Head Coach Shaun Moxham
Saturday, June 13 - Thursday, June 18
Shaun Moxham will be the head coach for our first week of camp. For players participating in the Junior Gold at the week’s end, the physical work will taper down beginning on Wednesday. Shaun and the coaching staff will ensure that those campers who are tournament entrants will move into their first-round matches in the best condition to compete.
Campers will check out and move out of their dormitory accommodations on Thursday morning. So if they are planning to compete in the Junior Gold, parents will need to arrange for hotel accommodation locally in Charlottesville for the tournament dates.
Residential Squash Camp at UVA Week 2 - Head Coach Mark Allen
Sunday, June 21 - Friday, June 26Sorry Week 2 Now Full
Mark Allen will serve as both camp director and head coach for week 2 of the Residential Squash Camps at UVA. Week 2 will begin after the tournament has come to a complete close. Players who did not compete in the Gold tourney will be assessed in the afternoon after check-in. Players who competed in the event and played through as far as Sunday will have the option to rest and recuperate during the afternoon assessment period.
Several coaches on the camp staff will be on the tournament staff as well. These coaches will be making a point of watching camp participants during the tournament. As such, we will be encouraging Gold Tournament players to take the opportunity to rest ahead of the first training session on Monday morning.
Campers will not have access to UVA dormitory accommodations until Sunday afternoon. Tournament players will need to check in and move into dorms during the regular check-in period, which we anticipate as 3:00pm - 4:00pm on Sunday. All campers participating in the Gold event should arrange hotel accommodation locally in Charlottesville for Friday-Sunday of the tournament.
NOTE: We strongly recommend that players choose to participate in only one camp session in conjunction with the tournament. Players who would like to participate in two weeks of the Residential Squash Camps at UVA should choose one week in June and return for the third session, which will run from July 21-26.
Entry into the UVA Junior Gold is online through US Squash. While both events are affiliated with the Virginia Squash program, their administration and management will be supported by separate entities. Therefore the payment and registration process for the tournament will remain separate from those of the residential camps.
