Nicol Champions Academy

The Nicol Champions Academy was founded 12 years ago by Peter Nicol (former World #1 for 5 years), Jess Winstanley (Mental Conditioning & Fitness), Melissa Winstanley & John Nimick (producers of Tournament of Champions, NetSuite Open). All shared the same goal of providing an outstanding learning experience for young squash players in a fun, caring environment. NCA runs squash training programs at Poly Prep in Brooklyn, Amherst College, College of Charleston, Nicol Squash Club in Rhode Island and international programs in Amsterdam, Portugal and China. All NCA programs feature outstanding professional players and coaches who guide players through specific squash & mental curriculum set by Peter Nicol.

Returning for their second summer at The Pingry School, The Nicol Champions Academy is delighted to run three weeks of camp in Summer 2019. The program is designed to challenge and teach junior players, with mornings devoted to technical on-court work and off-court conditioning, while afternoons center on match play and mental strategy. The squash program is designed to cover major areas of the game over a 1-week period. Each day has a different theme, and that theme is technically practiced, coached, applied in conditioned games, and then finally in match play. Headline coaches will be named soon!

This camp is open to players of all skill levels, in rising grade 6+.
