Greetings Downstate athletes and families! Thank you for making this one of the most successful club tryout events in Downstate history. We are very excited about the upcoming season! We believe that our teams, top to bottom, represent the best group of athletes this area has ever seen. Now that most of the team rosters have been assembled, there are a few actions that we need for all of our athletes to take care of:
1) If you haven’t already, please visit https://bit.ly/3ntRBaA and order your uniforms. The uniform store will close (for high school aged teams) on 9/24. Please ensure that you order before then or you’ll be subject to additional costs. Note that there are three(3) uniform kits: Aspire, Regional, and National. Please make sure that you are ordering the proper kit (and yes, you will need to order the entire set).
2) Please register for USA Volleyball, through our local governing body, GEVA. The link for registration is: https://www.geva.org/registration. Once on that page, click on the box labeled “GEVA/USAV 2021-2022 REGISTRATION”. You will need a full membership – please do NOT select the Developmental membership as we will not be able to add you to a competition roster.
3) Please download the app for TeamSnap . All athletes MUST have this. Once logged into the app, using the email address that you supplied during registration, you should see your team. From the Roster area, you can add additional family members.
4) There will be a Zoom meeting for ALL Travel teams (National and Regional teams), on Sunday, 9/19, at 8pm. We will be sharing important information about travel that each family will need, so please plan to attend. The meeting should last about 30 minutes. Meeting ID: 856 1792 9398 Passcode: Downstate
Please note that the commitment registration that was supplied with the team offer letters has been closed and we have started making offers to athletes on the waiting list. If you were offered, have not already committed, and are still interested in playing, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll see if there are roster spots available.
All of us at Downstate can’t wait for practices to begin, right after Thanksgiving. We’re looking forward to an amazing season! Good luck with your high season and we’ll see you on the court, soon!
