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.

*Summer Academy Registration Form – Sessions 1 & 2
*If a student is selected after you completed the registration form your program can replace them with another student. Please notify Edgardo of the change.

Selection Criteria – Session 3
Rising 9-12 grade students
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.
