COMMUNITY SQUASH

At Portland Community Squash, we decided to bring the best parts of our sport together under one roof. Read the Community Squash Pledge:

We build community

We measure success by access, equity, and integration

We share the values of respect, effort, and positivity

We volunteer to share resources, skills, and time

We bring together neighbors of all backgrounds

We raise money to remove economic barriers

We extend beyond sport to empower the whole person

We support every community member for life

We become a second family

 

We gather and celebrate

 

We grow stronger each day

 

We inspire others to think bigger and do more

And when they ask, why squash, We invite them .

PCS harnessed five years of community squash innovation into an open-sourced collection of slides and documents. View the Community Squash Package here  - LINK
