Tournament Director Certification


Running a squash tournament involves a great deal of coordination and management. US Squash provides a Tournament Director Certification Program to help support tournament promoters.  Given that not every type of tournament requires the same amount of preparation, both a Level 1 and Level 2 Tournament Director Certification course is offered to ease tournament directors into the tournament management process and equip them with all of the necessary resources to run a successful tournament. Each course provides tournament directors hands on experience, an overview of all US Squash guidelines and policies, and efficiencies in the tournament preparation process, ultimately leading to a more organized tournament experience for tournament directors, parents, coaches, and players!

Any questions can be directed to
