Natalie receives the Grit Academy Award
At The T Squash Academy, we not only teach athletes the sport of squash, we also emphasize developing strength in character. The core principles embraced at The T Squash Academy are Kindness, Respect, Self-Discipline and Grit. When an athlete in our program exemplifies one of these qualities, they are recognized with The T Academy Award.
A rising star in our tournament league, Natalie received the award for Grit in June.
During an extra practice session, Coach Laura asked Natalie to practice her backhand with the right technique on the swing machine a couple times before she could continue to play. 15 minutes later, coaches notice that Natalie is still at the swing machine working hard to perfect her swing. This act demonstrates the amount of dedication and focus Natalie has on her game.
