Why Urban Squash?
All of us working with RhodySquash have seen first-hand the positive benefits of sports mentorship. All urban squash programs across the country have had success with:
Squash, described as chess at 100 mph, is a sport that requires athleticism, fitness, and tactics. It instills the importance of hard work, dedication, focus, and commitment. In conjunction with the other planks of the NUSEA program, RhodySquash will provide life-changing opportunities to disadvantaged young people in the Newport community.
NUSEA programs have a track record of excellence and are a proven success. The first branch, SquashBusters, currently has a 100% high school graduation rate, compared to the city-wide 56% graduation rate in Boston. Similarly, 84% of SquashBusters team members enroll in college, compared to the 36% matriculation rate for the city. RhodySquash aims for similar results on our commitment!
