Travel Commitment Policy
The Darien Middlesex School (MMS) Squash Team will field a total of 4 teams with 6 players. There will be A, B, C, and D teams, and placement will be depend on ability, attendance, and attitude. All players selected for the travel teams must be enrolled at Middlesex Middle School, and must agree to make squash their PRIORITY for the entire course of the season. Given the number of players we have at each grade level, it is not fair to have roster spots go to players who are less than 100% committed to squash in the winter. We expect and encourage all of our athletes to play other sports during the rest of the year, as it increases athletic development and adds to players’ enthusiasm for all sports they play. But we require that during our relatively short season, you choose squash over other event conflicts. If you are not prepared to make squash your priority, we will recommend outside clincis where players can develop their skills but where there is flexibility regarding attendance. NOTE - IF YOU ARE TRYING OUT FOR TRAVEL HOCKEY, BASKETBALL, ETC, THEN YOU SHOULD NOT TRYOUT FOR TRAVEL SQUASH (We would expect it to be the same vice versa).
