Have Fun, Make Friends

We specialize in leaving nobody behind.

When you’re living with a disability, finding and accessing quality, affordable and fun sports can be frustrating.

There are always challenges, like:

  • Navigating a new recreational experience and environment safely
  • Finding the financial means to pay for registration fees, etc.
  • Transportation to and from squash 
  • Getting the necessary sports equipment and appropriate safety gear


That’s why we created the CBS Hot Shots!
An inclusive squash program that breaks those barriers for you; complete with a 4 week free trial period!

A Global First

We are the first squash program in the world to offer coaching services to persons with neurodevelopmental disabilities and persons with partial or no vision.

The WSF continues to promote squash as one of the most inclusive, accessible, and healthiest sports in the world. With the tremendous advancements in technology and global outreach by governments for improved national health and fitness, significant advancements have been made to modify equipment and elements of the game to ensure that it is more inclusive and much more accessible. I know that recently, efforts have been made to introduce the game to emotionally, mentally and physically challenged individuals and I would like to extend our gratitude to the Canadian Inclusivity Squash Program, Conception Bay South, for being a leader in this initiative.

I am coming back to compete again in September. I am enjoying this program to show my talent on the court. I am really enjoying playing squash with my fellow athletes and coaches who are very helpful. The main thing when enjoying playing squash is to have fun!

The program is run well. The administration is excellent. Communication is excellent. Fees are reasonable. Coaching supervision is great. Coaches are doing a wonderful job instructing athletes and pushing them to perform to the best of their ability. Athletes are having fun and learning new skills. They are motivated. They are interested in attending every week and look forward to it. As a parent I feel it is a good use of my time to ensure my son gets to squash because I believe it benefits him socially, physically and mentally. Thanks to you and the coaches for an extremely well run program that is very much enjoyed by the athletes.

I signed up for the Squash Camp with doubts as for what this could offer me. I had no experience with the Squash sport, and very little knowledge of how the game was played. I have very low vision and am legally blind. I felt nervous and indeed intimidated. I thought to myself, what am I doing? However, it turned out to be a great experience as well as a confidence booster. I am so glad that I signed up for the camp.
