Joe
Kneipp to train at Dartmouth College

June
4, 2003: a Team Kneipp press release           

Summer
2003 – Dartmouth

World
#12 Joe Kneipp is planning to make an assault on the world’s top
10 by training alongside Power this summer. Not Jonathon Power the current
Commonwealth Games gold medallist, but John Power his father and the head
coach of Dartmouth College where the Power Squash Academy is held over
summer.

Kneipp
will spend all of July based at Dartmouth training alongside Power’s
camp. There were numerous factors in his decision to train at the Ivy
League College.

“Summer
is quiet for tournaments and leagues – especially this year with the Cathay
Pacific and British Open cancelled – so it’s a time to concentrate
solely on training” Kneipp said. “I live and train in Amsterdam
which is a wonderful city with consistently poor weather. So during summer
when it’s a beautiful sunny day the last thing you want to do is
spend the day inside a squash court. My coach Dan and I agreed that it
would be better to go somewhere when we can focus one hundred percent
on squash and training and have less distractions. We’ve trained
at Dartmouth before and the mixture of great facilities and a vibrant
squash community make for excellent training conditions.”

Although
this is the 5th year that the Power Squash Academy has been held in
the States it is the first time Joe Kneipp has been associated with it.
The
Academy’s director John Power said “The Power Squash Academy
is very excited
to have a world class player the likes of Joe Kneipp training at the Dartmouth
College courts while the Academy is in session. His day to day presence
and commitment to his training will be a huge motivator for not only the
more than one hundred young players who will be here throughout the month
of July, but also to the Dartmouth players who will be in residence for
their sophomore summer”.

Although
Kneipp won’t be coaching as part of Power’s Academy he will
be involved. Power said “At least once per week Joe will play or
train with some of the better players or coaching staff so that the kids
can actually see him in action. We haven’t finalised the details
yet but Jonathon will probably come to the camp for a weekend and do an
exhibition match with Joe”.

Kneipp
will be training at the camp with his coach and brother Dan. “Typically
Dan and I will be on court for two or three hours a day” Kneipp
said. “We will also be taking advantage of the other facilities
at the college. There are 10 international courts including a show court
that has three glass walls, a weight training room, pool, all weather
track and apparently some of the most picturesque running and cycling
routes. We’ll also take our golf clubs and tennis racquets. It should
be a great month.”

The
Power Squash Academy has intensive training camps for competitive boys
and girls running from June 29 – July 18, followed by two one-week
sessions for juniors of all levels. There is an adult weekend from July
25-27.
