PHILADELPHIA, NJ - Geoff Mitchell, the head squash pro at the Chatham Club, received the National Coach of the Year award from the United States Olympic Committee on Tuesday night at the 2016 U.S. Open Squash Championships being held at Drexel University.

Mitchell was presented the award by Dent Wilkens, the senior vice president of operations at the ASB GlassCourt at the 2016 Delaware Investments U.S. Open.

Mitchell has been a teaching pro for more than a quarter century. A top player often ranked as high at No. 1 in his age group in the country, Mitchell has developed hundreds of juniors into national champions and intercollegiate team and Team USA members. Since 2012 Mitchell has been the board chair for StreetSquash Newark, the New Jersey-based urban program.

He has been recognized as a key visionary in American coaching circles. Beginning in 2013, Mitchell has been one of seven regional coaches, helping guide the creation and implementation of the US Squash regional squad structure. In January 2015, he led the US Squash-sponsored American team to the British Junior Open.

US Squash has given out the USOC National Coach of the Year Award since 1998 when Paul Assaiante received the award. Other winners include Demer Holleran, Mark Allen, Adam Hamill, Natalie Grainger and last year’s winner Jim Stephens.
