2020-2021 Darien Middlesex Middle School (MMS) Team (6th-8th grade)
 

 

After careful consultation with Ox Ridge Club regarding the health and safety of everyone on our team we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Darien Middle School Squash Program this winter.

Following increased and overwhelming concerns about the COVID-19 virus, we felt this was the best way to proceed during such an unprecedented global situation. We are very disappointed that we are unable to hold this season for our players. But we know it’s the right decision based on the information we have today.

We look forward to coming together for the spring 2021 season.  Wishing you all a safe and healthy Thanksgiving.

Guidelines for the Season
 
 
iMASK INFORMATION
  • This season masks and goggles are required on court, and it’s almost guaranteed that players of all levels and all ages will be required to were masks during the winter season (Dec-Feb).  Wearing masks may cause your goggles to haze or fog.  If you are experiencing this, we encourage you to purchase an iMask. The iMask+ WSD Mid Length Face Shield product has been designed for the specific needs of Squash Players.  The slightly shorter visor allows for freedom of movement while still protecting the face area. This protective barrier can help in the fight against COVID-19, and also provide impact resistance to protect your face from ball or racquet strike.  The iMask comes in adult and junior sizes (11% smaller for 7-10 year olds), and can be worn over Rx glasses.  You can learn more about the iMask (WSD Mid Length Face Shield) at https://www.imaskusa.com/
