GRADES 3-8

 

PROGRAM IS OPEN TO PUBLIC AND PRIVATE SCHOOL PLAYERS FROM DARIEN

 

For players in grades 3 through 8, the season runs from March 14th through June 3rd, with practices held on Monday 5:30-6:30, Tuesday 5:00-6:00, Wednesday 5:30-6:30 and Thursday 5:00-6:00.  We have combined our Darien Squash practice sessions with Ox Ridge's clinics, led by Rodney Martin and Ryan Cuskelly (former #1 and #12 in the world).  Practices will take place at Ox Ridge Riding & Racquet Club located at 512 Middlesex Rd, Darien.

The schedule can be found at the registration link included below.

Each registration session is 1 hour per week for 11 weeks and the cost for the season is $690 which includes all registration fees and the cost for the season-end party.  Discounted pricing of $575 is offered for Ox Ridge Members - the full $690 must be paid at registration and $115 will be reimbursed after the season starts.  Players are welcome to sign up for as many sessions as they like.

White team uniform shirts are required.  If players have a white team uniform shirt from prior seasons (it must 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 $30 per shirt). 

Competitive matches against other local town and club teams will be scheduled, and all players are invited to play in matches.  Match attendance is highly recommended, but not required.
