Upcoming Program: "Truth & Consequences"

Truth & Consequences: What you need to know about teen drinking from a legal, cognitive, social, academic and athletic perspective.

Tuesday, February 7th at 7pm in the DHS Auditorium


"They are safer doing it at home." "We take all the keys." "They need to be prepared for college." If you've made, heard or wondered about one of these statements, then this meeting is for you. A not-to-be-missed panel of experts will share all you need to know about the cognitive, social, emotional, legal, academic and athletic ramifications of underage drinking. Join Dr. Aaron Krasner, Silver Hill's Adolescent TLP Service Chief, Attorney Matthew Maddox, Nancy Herling of Post 53,  Darien Police Department and DHS School Resource Office, James Palmieri, and DHS Principal, Ellen Dunn, for an informative and actionable evening.

The website and email are our primary communication channels.  Always check the home page, your team page and your email for schedule information prior to heading to the fields, especially if you have any question about the weather.   Emails are generated and sent for all changes to the schedule, and you can link your calendars online to your player(s) schedules through the website.   It is vital that you have correct email addresses listed so that you receive our communications.   You can add/edit/delete emails and other contact information by going to "Edit My Account" on the website and logging in to your account. 


Boys at all ages are required to play with full gear, which includes a stick, helmet (may be a hockey helmet), gloves, shoulder and arm pads, a cup and a mouth guard for boys 3rd - 8th.   Girls at all ages are required to have a girls stick, face mask and mouth guard. 


For those of you who are new to the program, you may not know this but DHS appears to have its own polar vortex, primarily in March and April.  Dress accordingly.   Please add layers, it always feels 10-20 degrees colder on the oval than it does in your driveway.

Traffic Safety

The DHS location is terrific for allowing us to be in one place for all of our home activities, but the traffic can be tough.  Please allow for plenty of time to get your players to the fields.   Plan on parking and walking the younger players to their fields, do not let them walk alone across the parking lots.  Drive safely and pay attention as there are a lot of small bodies around.
