    Adult Open Gym

    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.”

    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.

    2014-15 Tryout Information

    This year ALL High School Location tryouts will be at the Downstate Athletic Center (DAC).  This will ensure that we have accurate accounting of all athletes and teams.    When checking in, please inform staff of the specific site you wish to be considered for.   ANY athlete not selected for a High School location will be considered for a team based out of the DAC.

    Teams will be formed by GRADE, as long as the individuals meet the proper age requirements as posted in the table below.

    Athletes are required to attend tryouts according to GRADE.  ONLY the Club Directors can allow athletes to "Play" up or down in age groups.  These will be addressed on a case by case basis.

    You must wear the SAME tryout shirt that you are given on the first day of tryouts for ALL tryouts that you attend!

    These teams will be offered at the following locations: Fox Lane - 14 Aspire and 16 Aspire, John Jay - 15 Aspire, Ardsley - 15 Aspire and 16 Aspire, North Rockland - 13 Aspire, 14 Aspire, 15 Aspire, and 16 Aspire.

    For CSA-Downstate and Rebels-Downstate, see tabs on the top of the home page.

    News and Information

    Congratulations to Bridget Walsh for breaking the Walter Panas single season ace record! 82 Aces and the season's not even over yet!
     

    Game two began as a back-and-forth affair, with the score tied three times. A smash by Victoria Corcoran gave Demarest the lead, a lead that they maintained until very late in the game.

    The Norsewomen extended out to a six-point lead, 14-8, on three straight kills by senior Hailey Riede.

    "We needed to start strong, we needed to finish strong, we needed to play the whole game and we needed to play it right," Riede said. "We got angry, almost. Everyone was like, 'I'm not losing again to them. I want to win the second game and I want to win the third game because I really want it.' Everyone wanted it."

    "Hailey got the job done today," added Demarest coach Beth Powell. "We put a lot on her and it's a long, three-set match. She played all the way around and got things done. She dug balls out that we needed her to dig. I'm so proud of her."
