Richard Millman is the creator of the Millman Experience, a squash learning and training system that puts together players of all ages and abilities and covers all aspects of the game. The former head coach of the US National Team and Cornell University Squash, Richard has coached players of all levels – from players ranked in the top fifty in the world to those holding a racquet for the very first time.
Richard has been certified at the highest coaching status in both the United States and the United Kingdom, and he has been the Director of Player Development for US Squash. He was awarded the USOC Developmental Coach of the Year, has been recognized three times as one of “America’s Top Fifty Most Intriguing, Interesting And Influential People In Squash” by US Squash, and has been the head professional at five different US clubs.
Richard has won nine US national titles, four Canadian national titles and a British national title. He has been ranked in the top two in his age group for over twenty years and has been recognized for his sportsmanship and his promotion of the game not only in the United States, but worldwide. Born in England, Richard and his wife, Pat, became US Citizens in 2013.
The Millman Experience, led by US Squash Coach of the Year, Richard Millman, is a unique squash training weekend.
Through a combination of storytelling, discussion and lots of on-court drills and games, you will learn squash’s most important principle, have new light shed on some of squash’s most misunderstood concepts, and discover your own inner squash potential.
Anytime you spend an intense and fun time with a group, bonds form. Some people come in having been friends before and other meet for the first time, but all leave being part of the Millman Experience Community.
This session will greatly increase your knowledge about squash strategy and technique, about how to practice effectively and about the secrets of the game.
• You will learn squash’s most important principles.
• You will learn a slew of new practice games that work for all levels.
• You will meet new people and have fun.
