Club Programs

The CSA welcomes any and all new college squash programs and encourages their growth and development. The ultimate goal is for each program to be a self-sufficient college-recognized varsity program that plays a full season of matches including participation in the end of season CSA National Team Championships.

Club Teams:  Club programs may enter the nine-player divisions of the National Team Championships if they meet the requirements for selection to the tournament. Club programs must pay the CSA’s annual dues and Team Championship fee each season by the specified deadline.

Matches: To be eligible for the National Team Championships, club programs must play the required minimum number of team matches. Click here for National Championship Eligibility Policies.

Player Eligibility: Eligibility rules are extremely complex and schools with varsity programs have compliance personnel that review player eligibility cases. In accordance with the CSA’s Eligibility Rules, club and emerging programs may not have graduate players on their rosters.

Grants: The College Squash Association’s Grant Program aims to provide both established club programs and emerging college programs with financial support to aid in their growth into strong and sustainable programs.  The fund targets new development with the ultimate goal of creating self-supporting college teams that continually expose the game to new players and markets.  To request a grant from the CSA, please fill out the application below:

Responsibilities: All teams that play intercollegiate matches are expected to follow all of the rules of the CSA as detailed on the website
