SEASON GUIDELINES

 

iMASK INFORMATION
  • This season masks and goggles are required on court, and it’s almost guaranteed that players of all levels and all ages will be required to were masks during the winter season (Dec-Feb).  Wearing masks may cause your goggles to haze or fog.  If you are experiencing this, we encourage you to purchase an iMask. The iMask+ WSD Mid Length Face Shield product has been designed for the specific needs of Squash Players.  The slightly shorter visor allows for freedom of movement while still protecting the face area. This protective barrier can help in the fight against COVID-19, and also provide impact resistance to protect your face from ball or racquet strike.  The iMask comes in adult and junior sizes (11% smaller for 7-10 year olds), and can be worn over Rx glasses.  You can learn more about the iMask (WSD Mid Length Face Shield) at https://www.imaskusa.com/
