In recognition of October being mental health awareness month, Squash BC is providing a forum to discuss mental fitness to help you and those around you to deal with the impact of COVID and hopefully a safe return to squash.
Dr. Bonnie Henry says “Sport is an important part of mental and physical health for children, youth, families and our communities.”
Mental Fitness is about feeling ready to play again. Exercise improves mood and serotonin levels. Learn how you can find balance with work, family and exercise and do it safely.
Part of Women's Squash 10 Week Challenge, the Shift Your Mindset conversation will cover important mental health topics such as resilience, connection, mindfulness and acceptance.
Date: Tuesday, November 3rd
Time: 6:00 - 7:00 PM
Girls and women participate in sports for reasons that are often different from boys and men. Feelings of belonging, togetherness and personal progress are highly valued, and in this unprecedented time, have become more important than ever. Find out how you can make your squash facility's environment more welcoming and supportive to women and girls - giving your facility the competitive advantage.
Topics will include: the look and feel of your facility; programming that encourages and supports female participation; training your staff and/or volunteers; having the right policies that support the safety and inclusion of your female members.
