Please join us for a lecture by world renowned squash coach Mark Allen on how to manage stress in junior squash players.  This lecture is for parents of junior players only.

About Mark Allen:

As a junior Mark captained England to first place in the World Junior Team Championships and finished fourth in the 1990 World Junior Individual Championships.  He competed for 3 years on the P.S.A. tour, and during this time achieved a highest world ranking of 41 and won matches over some of the best players in the world including Peter Nicol and Jonathan Power.

In 2000 Mark qualified as an English SRA Level IV Coach with Elite Status, this is recognized worldwide as one of the highest coaching qualifications in squash. From September 2003 to August 2005, Mark was Head Coach and Manager of the U.S. National Junior Women's Team. The U.S. Team finished 4th in The 2005 World Junior Championships, and #1 player Lily Lorentzen finished in the top 8 places in the individual event; both of these were best ever finishes for the United States in a world championship squash event. For this success, and other record performances from members of the team during his two year tenure, Mark was voted by U.S. Squash as the National Coach of the Year, 2005.

Mark is a U.S. Squash Coaching Panel Tutor, qualifying U.S. Coaches to teach at Level I and Level II, and he is currently writing the syllabus for the U.S. Level III program.

He graduated in 1996 from Nottingham University with a B.A. in industrial economics. While there, he continued to play at the university level capturing 3 British University Individual Championship titles in addition to captaining the British Universities Squash Team to victory in the 1996 World Student Games.

In December 2007 Mark decided to make a move back to Cape Town, South Africa, where his professional squash career first started.
