Darien Elementary School Clinic at Chelsea Piers CT

Fall 2019

This fall 2019 we are trying a new program format for beginners in kindergarten-5th grade. Chelsea Piers CT has created a “closed” Darien elementary school beginners clinic for Darien private and public school residents in grades kindergarten-5th.  This program replaces the program initially organized and managed by Darien Squash, Inc.  New and inexperienced players are a good fit for this program.
