Communication and Conduct Focus of New Junior Parent Account Policy



US Squash has announced that by February 29, 2016, one parent or guardian per junior player is required to have a separate US Squash account—free or paid— linked to that of his or her child(ren). If an adult already has an account or membership, this will occur when confirming the relationship with the child and affiliating accounts.

During the process to create an account, the parent or guardian will be prompted to agree to abide by the Code of Conduct for Parents, Coaches and Attendees. Increased awareness of the Code of Conduct serves US Squash’s goal of engaging families in the shared responsibility for proper conduct on and off the squash court.

Parent or Guardian-specific accounts will also allow US Squash to communicate directly with parents on issues that will enhance families’ experiences in the sport. These include regular communications on policy updates, news from the junior squash community, and new ways for families to manage their experience in tournaments and follow the results of their players.

Both parents are strongly encouraged to have an account affiliated with each child participating in junior squash. The overall policy and requirement is consistent with most other youth sports organizations

Junior players without an affiliated parent may be removed from the rankings and prohibited from registering for and competing in tournaments beginning March 1, 2016. Junior squash participants without the ability to affiliate an account with a parent or guardian will be addressed on a case by case basis.
