The search for new Squash Haven team members begins each fall in gyms throughout the city. We spend the month of September introducing thousands of New Haven students to the game of squash- as well as the Squash Haven program - in their gym classes. We introduce their families to the program at open houses throughout the city.
New team members are selected after a rigorous tryout process which includes seven days of academic and athletic tryouts at Yale as well as a written application, teacher recommendations, and family interviews.
Because they are the characteristics most necessary to success at Squash Haven, our primary selection variables are academic and athletic motivation and commitment. We also proactively seek team members who will be the first in their family to graduate from college.
