The Squash Canada Singles Officiating Program is a comprehensive program that encompasses all aspects of the training of referees and assessors, and the dissemination of information about the Rules of Singles Squash. Its purpose is to standardize the interpretation of these rules throughout Canada and to ensure that all matches are judged fairly.
Squash Canada believes that:
“Every competitive squash match should have a team of certified officials to ensure a safe and fair outcome to that match,”
The goals of the Singles Officiating Program follow Squash Canada’s mandate:
- To set and maintain standards for the training and certification of squash officials in Canada;
- To train and certify high calibre officials to meet the needs of Squash Canada’s high performance system;
- To facilitate links between the Squash Canada Officiating Program and international refereeing through the World Squash Federation and Pan American Squash Federation.
