SquashBond brings together children from diverse segments of society for an after school program and summer camp for 8-18 year olds that combines intensive squash training with leadership development. The program gives participants self-confidence in their own abilities while developing perseverance, sense of social responsibility and mutual respect for peers from different religious and socio-economic backgrounds.  

 

In the 4-6 hours each week of squash and education, participants take part in squash, academic tutoring, mentorship and trilingual language skills development.  In addition, they participate in periodic community service initiatives and field trips that help them develop their characters and increase their social awareness and sense of belonging to the group and to Israeli society as a whole. 

 

In 2019, SquashBond is launching IsraelConnect, a three week program for elite international high school squash players which combines intensive squash, service, and learning about Israel.
