Tawa Junior Academy is a coaching programme offered during school terms.
There are three levels:
Tawa Tiggers (Small nix) This is suited for 3-8 year olds. This is about learning basic skills and having fun. Parents are encouraged to join in.
Tawa/Mana Tornadoes This is suited for 8 years and above or whenever a child has sufficient skills. It is held on Mondays at Tawa with two sessions times: 3.40—4.20pm & 4.20–5pm. Cost is $65 per term (for 8 sessions). This provides juniors with skills to play competitive squash. Nick Mita and our junior coaches run these sessions.
Tawa/Mana Cyclones, Hurricanes and Typhoons This is for older juniors who are already playing competitive squash. It is held at Mana on Monday evenings from 5.15-7pm. Cost is $80 (for 8 sessions). Nick Mita runs this.
Tawa Elite Squad Juniors who are aiming to (or already) represent Tawa at Wellington or national level receive coaching at high-performance level. Session times are arranged with coaches.
