We want our players to to play the game with integrity and treat teammates as well as opponents with the highest level of respect. Not only do we want to work with players to improve all aspects of their respective squash game, but also to create a strong team culture where all players are appreciated and respected. We also hope that our players take advantage of the wonderful opportunities Hotchkiss offers its students both inside and outside of the classroom in addition to squash.
