The HAN Network spent seven days visiting all 17 FCIAC schools to meet as many winter sports captains and coaches as they could find.

More than 350 students and coaches joined HAN to talk about the season in nearly 150 videos — many of which HAN is still editing. But you can find all the videos, organized by school, at this link on the HAN Network website, live.HAN.Network.

The tour started on Monday afternoon, Dec. 7, at Darien High School and is scheduled to conclude on Tuesday, Dec. 15, in Greenwich — the 17th school on the tour. You can check out the other interviews at this page or on our YouTube Channel.

There are nearly 30 games on HAN’s winter schedule that include eight sports: Boys and girls ice hockey, boys and girls basketball, wrestling, gymnastics, boys swimming and indoor track. You can check out the winter schedule at this link. (Note: It is subject to change the season progresses.)
