Matches
 
Program fee does NOT include team matches.
 
Matches are largely dependent on parent volunteers being available to manage team matches on Friday evenings.  Please email to volunteer to manage a match.
 
All players will be invited to participate in matches against local clubs, and while we always try to give everyone fair and equal playing time, not all players will be rostered.
 
Players are rostered for a match based on the number of players the opposing team is bringing, and then matching skill level (rating and experience) to an opposing player.
 
If the home or opposing club charges match fees, players will be responsible for their portion (typically $10-$35 per player).

 
 
Withdrawals / Late Registrations
 
The $25 Registration Fee is non-refundable. Full Refund of the program fee will be given for program withdrawals requested before March 1, 2020. After March 1, 2020, NO REFUNDS, NO EXCEPTIONS. We do not prorate late registrations.  The total cost of the season is shared evenly among players, which is why we cannot prorate or offer refunds.
 
Cancellations

Darien Squash reserves the right to cancel sessions due to less than minimum registration. Cancellation decisions will be made before the start of a season, and Darien Squash will issue a full refund or credit to those registered for the cancelled session. If a class is cancelled due to weather conditions or Ox Ridge Club closing, Darien Squash will reschedule the group class for later date in the season.
 
Makeup Policy
 
Program participants register for classes on specific dates and times. Unless Darien Squash cancels a class, and provides for a makeup, attendance in scheduled classes is the responsibility of the participant. We cannot provide makeup classes or allow the participant to attend a different class.
