Greetings parents,

I’ll start by apologizing for how many emails you have been receiving from Downstate!  It get’s overwhelming as we try to prepare everything for the start of the season.

A couple of days ago you received an email asking you to accept the club assignment, ASAP.  I’ve been on support calls with SportsEngine over the last couple of days trying to figure out what happened, and it appears the emails never went out – what you might have received was a directory invitation.  If you have not already been in communication, directly, with one of our club directors, please click on the following link (make sure you select the correct location!) to complete your club assignment to Downstate:

For teams practicing at Gold’s Gym, in Lagrange:

For teams practicing at the Downstate Athletic Center, in Peekskill:

For teams practicing at Somers Sports Arena, in Somers:

For teams practicing at West Rock Indoor Sports, in Nanuet:

If you have already purchased your Garden Empire Volleyball Association (GEVA – USA Volleyball) membership, then this link will let you link that to Downstate.  If you don’t already have the membership, then this will walk you through the process and link it to Downstate.  The membership fee is around $65 and this is required for all athletes to be placed on our Competition rosters (note, you need to select the Competition membership).

Once again, our sincere apologies for the great number of emails that we have sent recently!  Hopefully, things will slow down a bit as we get into the season.
