TESTIMONIALS

Get Inspired by Our Students

"Thank you, Omar and Khaled Sobhy. My son Andy's road to recruitment by Cornell was paved by a few great coaches & mentors. We count you among the special ones. Your impact on the court and in the head was truly significant." 

— Chris, Cornell University, Class of 2019 Parent

“No other person has pushed me more as an athlete and as an individual…”

 

“In all my life, never have I met someone as driven and passionate as Omar Sobhy. Without his guidance and support, I wouldn’t be where I am today. Omar was the key to unlocking my potential, not just on the squash court but in all facets of my life. Omar always gives 100% of what he has; for me, it felt like he gave 110%. Even after our clinics or lessons were over, he was always happy to stay late and train with me for a little longer. Unlike other coaches, Omar helped me to identify my specific strengths and weaknesses in all areas of my game—physical, mental, tactical, technical—and gave me specific exercises to refine my skills. Beyond just feeding me drop shots and drives during lessons, he pushed me to improve myself whenever and wherever I could. No other person has pushed me more as an athlete and as an individual. When I was discouraged or exhausted, he kept encouraging me to work harder and stay motivated; he kept me on track. With his help, I turned the corner and went from a good squash player to a great one. Beyond squash, he has been instrumental in instilling a persistent drive and work ethic that will serve me in my college years and beyond. In 5-10 years, I hope to be like Omar: to set an example of hard work and determination for younger peers to emulate and to help unlock the potential in every student.”

“Anyone who wants to improve their game, especially the mental strength component, will benefit from training with the Sobhys”

 

“My Coach, Omar, has had a profound impact on me, always pushing me far beyond what I thought was possible - not just on the squash court, but also in life in general. The amount of time and energy Omar gives to his students is second to none. My squash and fitness has improved more than ever, especially my overall consistency and confidence controlling points and attacking my opponents. I would recommend Omar as a coach to players of all levels. Anyone who wants to improve their game, especially the mental strength component, will benefit from training with the Sobhy’s.”

- Ben, The Naval Academy, Class of 2022

“I would highly recommend [Sobhy Squash Camps} if you’re looking for a week of training that hits every base necessary for improving your squash game”

“The Sobhy Squash Camp I attended was one of the greatest training experiences I’ve had. The biggest difference that set this camp apart from others was the time spent off-court. There were track sessions for fitness, classroom sessions for mental preparation and professional film analysis, and active recovery sessions to prevent injuries and promote taking care of one’s body. I would highly recommend this experience if you’re looking for a week of training that hits every base necessary for improving your squash game.”

 

— Jack, 2019 F&M Sobhy Squash Camp participant

“Both boys continue to talk about what a great time they had [at your squash camp in Egypt] calling it ‘the trip of a lifetime’”

“We wanted to thank you again for hosting such a superb trip to Egypt this summer. Both boys continue to talk about what a great time they had, calling it “the trip of a lifetime”. They enjoyed the social events and outings as much as the squash sessions, which were also spectacular. Both boys are playing better squash than they ever have, and all they learned during the Egypt trip is certainly going to give them a leg up on the season. We really appreciate the good time you showed the boys, and we would be interested in sending them away with you again next summer.”

— Caroline and Slade, Harvard Squash Parents

“Omar is an exceptional teacher, displays a great passion for the game of squash and truly cares about the players he instructs”

“I have had the great pleasure of working with Omar for the past 2 years in developing different facets  of my squash game to include stroke fundamentals, game strategy, general and squash specific fitness and the mental approach to the game. Omar is extremely well versed in these areas and creates an instructional environment that balances fun, support and inspiration with encouraging players to push beyond their comfort zone to achieve their goals. He is an exceptional teacher, displays a great passion for the game of squash and truly cares about the players he instructs. My squash game as well as my physical and mental fitness have improved significantly during the time I have worked with Omar.”

“Omar Sobhy is a natural born teacher. He is charismatic and knowledgeable, and he brings an enthusiasm and intensity to his instruction that inspires you to want to do better. Most of all, it is clear that he cares about his students, and that interest helps create a superior and safe learning environment. You will be lucky to have Omar as a coach and mentor.”

“Omar does more than just inspire and educate his students - he really connects with us”

“Omar's coaching is highly effective and fun. Omar does more than just inspire and educate his students - he really connects with us. He relates to how we learn and what we are looking for and always makes sure that we are enjoying and understanding the game at a higher level each and every session. Omar has taught me and my family many tricks of the trade to help us play better squash and maximize our enjoyment on court.”
