As effectively as he parried his opposition’s strategies when a participant on the PSA circuit, Michael Khan, now chair of the WSF Coaching committee, mentored, facilitated, and guided his diversified group though 3 days of thought provoking presentations.
Some of Squash South Africa’s most experienced coaches will be appointed as National Tutors and African Tutors viz. Graham Prior, Alan Stapleton, Mike Bester, Gary Plumstead, Alan Colburn, Mike Bester, Liz Mackenzie and Sally White. In the future they will be involved in presenting course to aspiring coaches in Africa, as well as fulfilling an even more valuable role in South Africa. Recently qualified Level 2 coaches: Mike Tootill, Gary Wheadon, Ravi Govender, Jason Le Roux and Munro Montanus will become National tutors pending an assessment of their presentation abilities under the mentorship of one of the National/African Tutors.
