Squash Haven is one of twenty member programs in the National Urban Squash and Education Association, joining over 2,000 year-round team members who challenge themselves on the court and in the classroom. There are seventeen domestic programs as well as four international affiliates in Canada, Columbia, India, and South Africa.
All of the programs share a model where students learn the game of squash in the context of a rigorous after school team environment that emphasizes academic development, community service, and strong interpersonal team values.
The first member program, SquashBusters, was established in Boston in 1996. Since then urban squash programs have helped students participate in unique summer opportunities, attend college at a much higher rate (85%) than their peers (40-50%) and participate in educational partnerships with schools like Harvard, Columbia, and the University of Chicago.
While each program is an individually managed and fundraised non-profit, NUSEA member programs share general programmatic goals in additional to standards in sixteen areas of operation including attendance/attrition, programming, budgeting, and strategic planning.
Member programs come together twice a year in the National Urban Team and Individual Championships.
