    Downstate hosts adult open gym, every Friday, from 7:30p to midnight. We have 4 courts of co-ed volleyball, at varying skill levels - come join the fun!



    Jim Thompson - Founder, Positive Coaching Alliance

    “There are only two groups of people whose job is to win games,” says Thompson. “Coaches and players. Parents have a much more important job: to guide their child’s character development.”


    TOM HOGAN
    2008 US Women's National Team Asst. Coach
    2011 Girls’ Select A2 Head Coach

    Do you have any advice to offer parents? Getting your kids involved in team sports is a gift you give them for life. Volleyball is a game that instills confidence, commitment, teamwork, strategic thinking and so much more. Once they’re in sports, parents can never be too positive when supporting them. After a great game or a rough match, players are looking for positivity and understanding and support. Nothing beats a hug from mom and dad.

    Kids don’t care how much you know, until they know how much you care.

    The Blue Eagles won an NJSIAA-record fourth consecutive Tournament of Champions title by outlasting rival Demarest in three high-quality sets in Sunday’s 13th annual final at South Brunswick High School.

    Kirwan led the IHA comeback with a pair of blocks and a kill. Also contributing kills were juniors Jamie del Rosario, Casey King, and Annabel Reyes (team-high 10 kills). Senior libero Maeve Kenny had a handful of her 26 digs.

    "Demarest really wanted it in Set 3," Nolan said, "and I said to myself, ‘Do our players really want it?’ I just wanted them to step up and grab it, and take charge out there. And all of a sudden, we did. We turned it around, and believed we could, and finished it up and went charging through."

    On top of being the City Champions, the team also received a number of individual awards. Senior captain Kelly Gallagher was named the Bronx/Westchester League Player of the Year.
