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.  We will play matches against local public and private schools, and we are a member of the FairWest League.  That FairWest Championships 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 Varisty players on the girls teams will also play at US High School Nationals in early to mid-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.

Tryouts will begin in November.  All ladders will be based on last year's ladder and coaches' discretion.  The season runs from Thanksgiving week until the FairWest Championships. 

The price structure changes each season, based on court and coach availability.  Those rates are available when the team is selected.
