Refunds processed on Friday, May 22, 2020 at 2:00 PM/EDT

In light of the Board of Education's announcement that schools will remain closed for the remainder of the year, Darien Youth Squash will be issuing a partial refund for the 2020 spring season. While disappointed about the season, we keep it in perspective. First and foremost, our hope is that you and your families are safe and healthy. For those of you who have been affected by this disease, our thoughts are with you. 

Partial Refund

Darien Squash is pleased to provide our families with a partial refund for the 2020 spring season. We have spent extensive time reviewing costs and are refunding as much as possible. We are in uncharted waters here and ask for patience and understanding. Please know that there are many upfront costs associated with the canceled 2020 spring season, such as program shirts, website fees and insurance.  There is no perfect solution, but we have worked hard to cut costs and are confident that we have come up with one that is fair given the circumstances.

2020 Spring Season: $350

Darien Youth Squash is a 501-C 3 organization run exclusively by volunteers, which is why we are able to keep costs low. We are doing the best we can to do right by all of our families. Please reviewing the following frequently asked questions:

Why are you not issuing a 100% refund?
There are fixed costs associated with the canceled season that the program incurred. Darien Youth Squash made every effort to refund as much as possible to our families by reducing as many costs as possible. 

How did you arrive at refund percentages? 
We reviewed the fixed costs and did our best to allocate the expenses fairly and accordingly.

When will I receive the refund?
We are working with League Athletics to get this done as quickly as possible. We hope to have the refunds issued within two to three weeks. 

Donations?
Families who donate a portion of their 2020 spring season refund to Ox Ridge Club will receive a formal acknowledgment letter.  The donor may use this letter as proof of his or her contribution and claim a tax deduction.

What if I have not picked up my shirt?
There will be one final distribution date set when it is appropriate to do so.

How do I schedule my private lessons?
Two private lessons are included with each player's first registration.  We are not offering refunds for the private lessons, because the terms of the original agreement remain unchanged.  Private lessons are scheduled directly with Ox Ridge Club pros, squash@oxridge.com, and do not expire.

Team Seasonal Membership?
The 2019-2020 Team Seasonal Membership ends on May 31, 2020.  Families who paid March, April and May dues will receive a formal acknowledgment letter from Ox Ridge Club.  The donor may use this letter as proof of his or her contribution and claim a tax deduction.

Thank you for your continued support and may you and your loved ones remain safe and healthy in these uncertain and trying times.
