Squash ACES meets regularly every Tuesday and Thursday from 3 pm to 6 pm during the school year.
Our staff meets the students after school, walking with them from Reynolds Middle School to Franklin & Marshall College.
Each session, students spend the first half of practice on the squash court. After a healthy snack, the students spend the second half of the session doing academic work in the classroom. Franklin & Marshall College has very generous by providing court time and classroom space for students in the program.
One Saturday a month, Squash ACES meets to play squash or experience other sports such as frisbee, tennis, and dance. The program also provides monthly enrichment activities, academic based field trips and community service projects, as well as opportunities to travel to and play with other urban squash programs. Squash ACES staff communicates with families and Reynolds school staff on a regular basis.
Squash ACES encourages involvement by reaching out to members of the Franklin & Marshall and Lancaster communities. College students and members from the community help on the squash court and in the classroom.
