Volunteer

Main Content

Volunteers are what make MetroSquash work.

A key component to our success is our extensive network of program volunteers. With only 13 full-time staff and over 400 students in the after school, weekend, and summer programs, MetroSquash relies heavily on our responsible, dedicated volunteers to help support day to day programming operations on the court and in the classroom. On the squash court, this will allow students to improve at a much faster rate than in a group setting by receiving positive feedback, praise, and one-on-one instruction. In the classroom, students benefit most from the increased attention of one-on-one tutoring. Volunteers can also participate by chaperoning weekend activities and by volunteering at events.

Please take a moment to review the opportunities for volunteering below and reach out to us with any questions or to get started. We look forward to seeing you at MetroSquash soon!

Opportunity Areas

Squash

MetroSquash is looking for volunteers with a squash background to help lead guided instruction on the courts. Squash volunteers will be required to meet with one of our squash directors during their orientation session in order to have their squash skills assessed.
