The SSRA provides funding to people supporting squash activities throughout the course of the year. We review each application on its own merits and are open to the types of activities we support. Each application request is reviewed by the SSRA committee.
The list below provides a general guideline for funding:
Who is Eligible?
Anyone is eligible to apply for funding. Most commonly we fund coaches or parents to help with the cost of travel to various events. We are also open to funding local events that help promote squash in the region. We are cautious about providing funding directly to junior players, as this can impact their standing as an amateur player.
Is there a limit?
The SSRA is a small organization and we do our best to provide as much funding as possible, but we are constrained by budget. It’s important that you request funding early so as not to miss out. While there is no fixed funding amount, we do try to cap requests at $250 per player, with a maximum of $500 per request.
A Note on Transparency
So that we maintain the integrity of this process, we make all funding requests publicly available (both rejected and approved), along with the details of our decision. Starting from 2017, these details will be available via the Seattle Squash website at www.seattlesquash.com.

What is expected in return?
First and foremost we expect the funds to be used for the purpose provided in your application. We also expect that you’ll represent Seattle Squash in a positive manner. Starting in Janaury 2017, we expect that each event funded will provide content back to the SSRA that we can use to promote on our website. This may include a report that we can use on our blog and social feeds along with photos and other details from the event.
