Welcome to the online home of the nationally ranked Darien High School Blue Wave boys lacrosse team. Every season the team embarks on a mission striving to continue the tradition of excellence that is embedded within the program. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit. This program has a habit of succeeding.
The Wave are led by Jeff Brameier who is in his 31st season as head coach. Under "Coach B", the program has a win/loss record of 483-129. The program has garnered national recognition with nine state titles including the six straight (1997, 2000, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2012), twelve FCIAC championships (1992, 1994, 1997, 1998, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2011), five state runner-up trophies, and twenty-five consecutive trips to the state "Final Four" from 1987-2012.
Coach B is assisted by a very experienced and professional staff that includes Bobby Lutz and Chris Madalon on varsity, Dan Arestia on JV, and Charly Fish and Keith McGivney on freshman. The program is also lucky enough to have volunteers Mike Ryan & Gene Salvatore involved.

Coach B’s Guidelines
A freshman, who plays on JV or Varsity, please attend freshman dinners.
A sophomore playing only Varsity, please attend Varsity dinners. If Varsity play is periodic, attend JV dinners.
No players attend multiple team dinners, and regardless of roster, boys are most comfortable with their own age group! Guidelines are for planning the appropriate amounts of food for these hungry boys~!
