These calls give coaches the opportunity to provide input and learn about the work the CSA board is focused on. I encourage as many coaches as possible to attend.

2017-2018 CSA Match Coverage Survey

Live Scoring Update

College teams have access to Club Locker live scoring for all matches, which will allow your fans to track your team’s results in real time while also smoothing the process of results entry for coaches. Please see the attached document for instructions on live scoring. As an added benefit of the CSA/US Squash partnership, for the 2017-2018 season US Squash will waive fees and allow all fans to access the Club Locker live scoreboards at no cost; only a free account is required.

Match entry timing

As a reminder, all scores must be entered for matches on the same day they are played.

Incident Report Form 

The CSA is commitment to supporting teams in maintaining the highest standards of conduct and sportsmanship throughout the season for teams, coaches, and fans. Should you see a violation of the these principles during a match, coaches should submit an incident report form to the CSA. The incident form and adjudication process information is available here: https://csasquash.com/about/incident-reporting/

Referee Program

Coaches will receive an email shortly with more information on a CSA/US Squash joint referee program for this season. Coaches interested in engaging with the program should respond to the survey contained in that email.

Eyewear Reminder 

All players must wear CSA approved eyewear during warm-ups and competition. The CSA adheres to the US Squash eyewear policy, which is available here. Please note that Rudi Project and Oakley eyewear is not approved to the ASTM F803 standard, and that I-masks should be worn over any regular glasses or non-approved eyewear.
