About the Event:

In March of 1980 six young American women competed for the first ever World Junior Championships in Sweden. The team was headed by coach Carol Weymuller and the players were Alicia McConnell, sister Patrice McConnell Cromwell, Karen Kelso, Kat Castle Grant and Diane Staley. They weren’t supposed to win. They had barely scraped together enough money for flights and the entry fee. They sewed USA decals onto the backs of their warm-up jackets on the way over and since they couldn’t afford the tournament hotel, they billeted with several families. They were hardball players but had to adapt quickly to the softball game. They not only captured the World Junior Team Championship title, but Alicia McConnell also won the individual gold medal. The program, hosted by ToC MC Will Carlin, will include keynote speaker Jennifer Cooper from UN Women (the global initiative for gender equality) giving a brief overview of the new Sport for Generation Equality initiative, and award presenter Ned Edwards, retired squash champion and now associated with US Squash.

All proceeds go directly to the PSA Foundation’s We Are One Fund which helps professional players who have been adversely and severely financially impacted by the pandemic. We are excited to honor this team’s great accomplishment at the ToC Virtual 8th Annual Women’s Leadership Awards Program on April 7th and invite you to join us!

What is The ‘We Are One’ Fund?

The ‘We Are One’ fund is a player-driven initiative which aims to bring the squash community together by providing relief to PSA players that are in need of urgent financial support due to the effects of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and suspension of the PSA Tour.

Thanks to the generosity of the squash community, $110,000 has already been distributed. However, there are still players in need of financial support to help with the simplest of expenses such as food bills, rent and medical costs. Help us to ensure the professional players we know and love remain safe, healthy and can continue to compete in the sport that we all love during this difficult time! 

“These funds have helped me to come back home. Most importantly, it has given me hope to continue training. I am very thankful to anyone who has contributed to this initiative. These are harsh times and solidarity is hard to find. I am sure your donations have eased pain. Rest assured that I am giving my 100 percent in order for me to display my best level of squash once we get back.”

World No. 188 Miled Zarazua from Mexico.

“It really helped me trying to stay positive and motivated to train during these past months. It’s really hard to keep the head up when we struggle financially, so all the help we can get is welcomed at the moment.”

World No. 73 Rui Soares from Portugal.

“I have to thank the PSA for the initiative and specially the donors because of their generosity. My income mainly comes from coaching and it’s been 4 hard months. Summer is also a bad season for coaching and this summer even worse, so this money will help me so much to keep playing when the tour resumes and to keep training where I need. Again, Thank you very much to everyone who have participated in this initiative.”

World No. 222 Joel Jaume Izcara.
