Darien High School Squash (DHS) has Varsity and Junior Varsity teams, as well as a practice squad.  We have a boys team and a girls team.  We practice and hold our matches at Chelsea Piers Connecticut in Stamford and Ox Ridge Club in Darien.  We will play matches against local public and private schools, and we are a member of the FairWest Public School Squash Association (FWPSSA).  That FairWest Conference Cup are held at the beginning of February for both V and JV squads.

The top nine Varsity players on the boys and and the top nine Varsity players on the girls teams will also play at US High School Championships "Nationals" in February.  That weekend tournament alternates between Connecticut and Philadelphia.

All payers must have, or create, a free account with US Squash.  All members must be, or become, Chelsea Piers platinum members.
