Officiating, Singles & Doubles
Squash BC is part of a nation wide officiating program that has been set up and maintained by Squash Canada. Part of your membership dues will go to the running of this program. Officiating is an integral part of squash and help to promote fair play and safety. Officiating programs develop new officials, promote mentorship, encourage officials to increase their certification and proficiency from the club to the national level. Officiating courses will provide a greater understanding of the rules of squash and should be help improve the level of play and overall safety of players in Canada.
Squash Canada is currently transitioning to a new officiating program, and we apologize if this causes some disruptions. All officials must now register at http://squashcanadaofficial.com. If you were already an official under the old system, you must also email scans of your assessment booklet to Dave Howard at [email protected] in order to maintain your old officiating level. We apologize for any inconvenience this creates.
