WSO Products

WSO products come in various formats and cater for Events, Referees, Coaches, or Players. WSO can develop products as part of a curriculum or as individual sessions, and will fit effectively into your development plan:

  • Referees benefit from a current path that cascades down from the professional game all the way to grassroots officiating.
  • Players benefit from the clarity of the rules, understanding what the referees are looking for, and learning how they can solve traffic issues, movement patterns, or other challenges they may face during matches. Junior players become more comfortable being able to referee and understand the rules. 
  • Coaches benefit from understanding how to coach their players by gaining a deeper understanding of the referee’s current line of thinking regarding decision-making and movement patterns. 
  • Events benefit from a turnkey service that provides active referees with a more consistent line of thinking who have worked their way through the WSO pathway.

Who will benefit from WSO products?

World Squash Officiating (WSO) offers a variety of innovative online and in-person products designed to inspire and educate motivated individuals or groups who want to improve their squash experience by enhancing both their officiating knowledge and the skillset to apply that knowledge. These WSO products help participants develop a richer understanding of the rules, offer insight into player movement patterns and the impact those movements have on referee decision-making, and assist in getting the game to flow effectively.
