GRADES K-2

MSQUASH has created a special program for Darien Squash players in grades K-2 at their brand new facility in South Norwalk (SONO) located at 85 Water Street.  The program will work on introducing squash and hand-eye coordination to players in a fun, unique, and innovative way.  Players will train on MSQUASH’s multi-ball courts and interactiveSQUASH system, which converts the squash court into a smart court where players hit the ball at targets projected on the court walls in a video-game-style immersive experience.  MSQUASH is owned by Katline Cauwels and Shaun Moxham who, in addition to being former world class professional squash players and coaches, live and are raising their children in Darien.

Each registration session is 1 hour per week for 9 weeks and the cost for the season is $425 which includes all registration fees and a MSQUASH/Darien Squash team shirt.  A 10% discount is offered for MSQUASH members.  Players are welcome to sign up for as many sessions as they like. 

The K-2 season runs from September 20th through November 20th, with practices held on Tuesday (3:30-4:30 PM), Friday (4:30-5:30 PM) and Saturday (11:00 AM-12:00 PM).

GRADES 3-8 FALL SEASON HAS STARTED!

 

GRADES 3-8

For players in grades 3 through 8, the season runs from September 13th through November 19th, with practices held on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 3:30 to 4:30 and from 4:30 to 5:30.   Practices will take place at Ox Ridge Riding & Racquet Club located at 512 Middlesex Rd, Darien.

Each registration session is 1 hour per week for 10 weeks and the cost for the season is $625 which includes all registration fees and the cost for the season-end party.  Discounted pricing of $525 is offered for Ox Ridge Members - the full $625 must be paid at registration and $100 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.
