South Calgary Junior Squash Program

About Us

Inspired by our parents, Mick and Judy Grigg, who ran a volunteer junior squash program out of the Heritage Squash Club (30 years ago!), our junior squash program took off 20 years ago! Matt and Leona have been running the program since 2003. While Ozzie and Kyla have joined in the past few years. We all love introducing kids to the game, supporting our more advanced players and building our community.
