2015 – 2016 Individual Championships: There has been a change in the location of the 2015 – 2016 Men’s and Women’s College Squash Association Individual Championships, which will be held March 4 – 6, 2016. The event will now be hosted in Stamford, CT, at Chelsea Piers.

Squash Ball Orders: With the season fast approaching, the CSA encourages you to take advantage of the organization’s relationship with Dunlop to order the balls you need for the year. Revenue from the sales goes to the CSA and helps us meet our mission of supporting continued success of college squash. Balls are sold for $30/dozen. Please contact Dent Wilkens with any questions related to squash ball orders.

Team Preview Questionnaires: As a reminder, please complete your team preview questionnaire. We will use the information submitted below to compose the preview. Feel free to respond informally, and we will polish your responses. Please note that we will only publish previews for teams that submit questionnaires through 10/2.

Information about graduates and incoming players are used in the preseason rankings, so if you do not respond, we will assume your team will be weaker than it was last season.
