Sharing Your Knowledge & Experience

Steel City Squash could not succeed without the generous support of volunteers. Their time, talents, and efforts are pivotal to the program’s mission and we thank them all for their dedication to our community and students.

Volunteers range in age and expertise, from high school students to senior citizens, those who have never played squash before to former professionals and national champions. Each can offer homework help, enrichment instruction, and squash & fitness instruction to all of our students.

No matter what a volunteer’s ability or schedule, there are ways to make deep and lasting impacts on the lives of our very deserving students. Thank you!
