It certainly was a year like no other. But SQB dug deep, worked hard, and persevered. We are excited to take what we learned this year about determination, resourcefulness, imagination, and friendship into a new year.
The usual crowded van rides, boast-drive sessions, and chock-filled calendars have been replaced by Zoom fitness classes and online tutoring, but SQB remains programmatically strong and focused. At every turn, our goal continues to be in-person interactions with our students and we’ve done this hundreds of times over this year in small group PODs and one-on-one get-togethers.
During this difficult time, SQB has made it a priority to get our students out of the house, with the main goal of having fun.
Even with the quarantine, SQB Providence is going strong.
The 2020 Rumble was record-setting celebration of professional and amateur squash and a reminder of the power of the program.
SQB Providence is off to a busy start. Read about what we've been up to since the program year kicked off in September.
SQB Providence completed it's first full year of operations with lots of great academics, squash, and community service activities.
In its very first year, SquashBusters Providence is already having a powerful impact in the city. With strong partners by its side, the program is serving nearly 30 students with a plan to eventually serve 110.
Halfway through the 2017-2018 program year, SquashBusters keeps going and growing. A brand-new team of Providence sixth-graders signs on, the Posse Foundation selects an SQB senior for the third year in a row, and Boston's varsity team heads down to Philly for their first-ever high school nationals. Meanwhile, the Derby's just around the corner!
On February 10, SquashBusters Providence officially welcomed its first team of sixth-graders into the SQB community. Check out the Providence Journal's coverage of the exciting event!
Year 22 shines especially bright for SquashBusters. We welcome 50 new 6th and 7th grade Boston and Lawrence students, elevate squash to official varsity status, and realize our Providence dream.
