Good evening all,

As you are all probably aware by now, the Governor of NYS has placed us in a State of Emergency. The Directors have been monitoring the news coverage regarding the storm and unfortunately, we feel it is the best and safest decision, to cancel all Downstate related events including tryouts, at all locations, for tomorrow, August 22, 2021.

Again, DAC – Peekskill, North – LaGrange, and West – Nanuet/Westrock, there will be NO tryouts held tomorrow August 22.

We apologize for the late notice but we have been monitoring the situation and wanted to make absolutely sure it was necessary to cancel, before we made that decision. We understand that all athletes and families, as well as our staff, had arranged their schedules around tomorrow and we take that seriously. However, given the possibility of unsafe driving conditions and the commutes that many of you all will have to get to the facilities, we believe this is the best decision.

At this time, Sunday August 29, 2021, will be held as originally planned. Please check the website for details on next Sunday’s schedule. Note: We plan to use tomorrow’s schedule, on August 29.

Lastly, we have scheduled September 12, 2021 as the make-up tryout date. Please place this date in your calendars and look for emails and updates as we approach that day.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding. Again, we apologize for the inconvenience and look forward to seeing you all at the next tryout date.

As always, any questions can be forwarded to

Thank you and stay safe.
Downstate Board
