Program Overview

Steel City Squash is an academic and athletic youth program that provides life-changing opportunities to children from low-income families in Pittsburgh through education, mentoring, community service, and the sport of squash. Our mission is to provide consistent, long-term and reliable support to underserved students and their families. By maintaining the highest standards, Steel City Squash encourages each student to reach his or her fullest potential in the classroom, on court, and in the community.

During the summer, student-athletes commit to coming five days per week for five weeks and receive at least 3 hours of academic enrichment and 3 hours of squash/fitness/swimming/or other instruction.
