Resources for Organizers, Athletes & Parents

How To Guide

Racquetball Canada’s How to Guide is a great resource for program organizers and sport leaders. We’ve included several sections with useful tips for those operating:

  • leagues
  • drop in programs
  • programs for women & girls
  • programs for athletes with a disability
  • school and community based programs offered in court facilities
  • school and community based programs offered in facilities without courts

Check out the ideas we’ve provided for planning, marketing, managing logistics and registration. We’ve also provided some ideas for how to keep people coming back!

If your program or club has found a great way to deliver programs that we should include in our How To Guide, let us know!

Long Term Development

Children, youth and adults need to do the right things at the right time to develop in their sport or activity – whether they want to be hockey players, dancers, figure skaters or gymnasts. Long Term Development (LTD) describes the things athletes need to be doing at specific ages and stages.

Science, research and decades of experience all point to the same thing: kids and adults will get active, stay active, and even reach the greatest heights of sport achievement if they do the right things at the right times. This is the logic behind the Long Term Development Framework.

Mini-Clinics With Mitch

Mini-Clinics with Mitch is a ten-part series of instructional videos full of tips and ideas for athletes. Mitch Brayley developed this series in order to provide athletes with a focus while they were unable to access facilities during the COVID-19 shutdowns. Mitch provides useful ideas, drills and technique that can be used on and off the court at any time by athletes of all ages.

This is the 10th video of the series, where Mitch talks about developing a strong mental game. This gives you a preview of the series, but we suggest you start with Episode 1, which deals with goal setting.
