About The Association
The New England Interscholastic
Squash Association (NEISA) is the organizing body of boys' squash among independent
schools in New England. The Association welcomes all squash-playing schools that are
members in good standing of the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council (NEPSAC).
There are currently thirty-eight member schools in the Association.
The NEISA runs
a championship tournament in late February. In the championships, players
from each school accrue team
points in seven flights, each with consolation draws. There is a strong
emphasis on participation in the event: players are guaranteed a minimum
of three matches over the course of the weekend and most play more. No
competitors are eliminated from the three-day tournament before the final
day of competition. In 2010, Brunswick School won the Class
"A" team title, Loomis Chaffee School won the Class "B" team
title, and Hopkins School won the Class "C" team title.
At the end of
each season, the Association awards the Brandes Trophy in recognition
of the team with strongest dual match record in the regular season. The NEISA
also sponsors Team
Sportsmanship Awards--one for the north/east region and one for the south/west
region--given to the squads best exhibiting standards of fair play and sportsmanship
throughout the season and the tournament. In 2010, the Brandes Trophy was
Brunswick School and the Team Sportsmanship
Awards were won by Brooks School, Choate
Rosemary Hall, and Kingswood-Oxford School.
NEISA is governed by a five-person Executive Committee. Four members
of the Committee are elected from among the
coaches of member schools; the Association's Executive Director serves on
the Committee ex
officio. Each February, coaches elect one representative from the
north/east region and one from the south/west region to serve two-year terms
on the Committee. Members of the 2009-2010 NEISA Executive Committee are:
Doug Burbank (Brooks School); Peter Doucette (Westminster School); Ned Gallagher (ex
officio); Tim Richards (St. George's School); and Tote Smith (Salisbury School). The Executive Committee is
charged with overseeing the championship tournament--including seeding and
making the draws--as well as standardizing rules, procedures, and practices
for the sport during the regular season.
Ned Gallagher is the Executive
Director of the NEISA and has run the New England
Interscholastic Squash Championships since the 1986-1987 season. In addition
to his work as a squash coach, Mr. Gallagher is a
teacher of history and English and the Director of Athletics at Choate
Rosemary Hall in Wallingford, Connecticut.
