  • Any program that wishes to send more than their allotted slots, please contact Edgardo.
  • Spots will be available contingent on programs accepting allotted slots.
  • SEA reserves the right to reject any player that doesn’t fit the listed criteria.

Selection Criteria – Session 3

  • Rising 7-12 grade students
  • For HPT players or potential HPT players 
  • Programs can nominate a player they think would be a strong candidate for SEA’s HPT. Space for the session is limited, and spots will open up based on the availability of current HPT players.
  • Programs should nominate their top players based on squash ability. Academic performance, attendance, program engagement, or the type of school that a student attends (e.g., boarding, public, private) should not bias your decision to nominate a student for the opportunity.
