Registration is open to players in grades 3-8 and costs $100 for the entire school year.  You may train wherever, whenever and with whomever you like.  We will not be running Darien Squash organized practices this school year.

The team will be run exactly the same as it has in years past, except this school year players may train at their venue of choice. 

Registering for the team gives you access to all matches as outlined above.  Additional match fees will apply and are typically $20 per FairWest, intramural and round robins, $35 for Jamborees and $135 for Nationals.  Team uniform shirts are required.  If players have a uniform shirt from prior seasons (it must be white and have their last name on the sleeve), they may use those shirts.  We will provide a link to order new shirts for those players that don't have a uniform or need to order a new one (estimated cost is $35 per shirt).

We will play home matches, intramurals, and round robins at Ox Ridge Riding and Racquet Club in Darien (512 Middlesex Road).
