Award Named for David Kinsley in Honor of Community Service

We are so proud of the work that David Kinsley has done to support the underprivileged youth program at Capitol Squash. Based at Trinity College, Capitol Squash’s mission is to provide at-risk Hartford youth with life-changing opportunities through the sport of squash. David served as Board Chair from 2014-2019.

The David Kinsley Award for Sportsmanship Presented at Year End Celebration

Each June, Capitol Squash students, staff, volunteers, and families come together to celebrate student achievements and another completed program year. Awards include perfect attendance, most improved squash and academics, and high school acceptances. Capitol Squash also celebrated another chapter coming to a close. David Kinsley has been Capitol Squash’s Board Chair since the program’s relaunch in 2014 and he is passing the baton to Walter Harrison this month. In recognition of David’s devotion and ceaseless support of Capitol Squash, his energetic leadership and enthusiasm for the mission of the organization, we presented the first annual David Kinsley Award for Sportsmanship. David, thank you for your support! We look forward to presenting this award for years to come.
