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 is led by Jeff Brameier who this spring completed his 40th season as the only head coach to walk the sidelines for the Blue Wave. Under "Coach B", the program has a won/loss record of 666-149 (.817). The 2023 team played one of the most competitive schedules of all time and reached the semi finals in both the FCIAC and State Championships. The 2022 season had the team winning its 19th FCIAC title and ending the season with a tough loss in the State Championships. The 2021 season had the team getting back on the field in state and compiling a 19-2 record and winning the FCIAC Championship for the 18th time. The 2020 season was lost to the COVID 19 Pandemic, but the 2019 team finished at 17-5 and were FCIAC Eastern Division Champs and the CLASS L STATE CHAMPS. The 2018 team was 22-1 FCIAC Champs and Class L Runners-up, while the 2017 team was recognized in numerous polls as NATIONAL CHAMPS after their undefeated season matching the 2016 Team with all being a part of the longest winning streak in Connecticut Boys Lacrosse History at 76.

Coach B has had tremendous help from Chris Sgritta – former 2002 DHS Lacrosse & Football Captain returning to his alma mater for his ninth season this spring as the Associate Head Coach in charge of defense, which will also had Greg Lewis return as an assistant on varsity. Keith McGivney will continue as the Head JV coach assisted by Matt Berry , while on the freshmen level we are fortunate to have our two coaches - Greg Glenday and Brent Hanson come on board to help make an impact on the players and program. We also had valuable volunteer support from World Team & PLL player Connor Kelly and faceoff specialist Tanner Strub.
